Recently, Fox News seems to have acquired a keen interest in the physical attributes of female cartoon characters.
Fresh off the heels of Tucker Carlson’s surreal rant against the Green M&M trading her knee-high boots for trainers, comes Candace Owens, triggered by a new pantsuit for Disney’s Minnie Mouse.
It should be noted that the iconic mouse hasn’t actually been redesigned – Minnie is set to temporarily sport a new pantsuit, designed by Stella McCartney, which will be worn by a performer in a Minnie Mouse costume at Walt Disney Studios Park, in recognition of Women’s History Month.
Not a big deal – Minnie experiments with new clothes all the time. After all, new outfits equal more merchandising opportunities for Disney.
Owens, however, framed the temporary outfit change as part of an insidious plot to erode American society and distract consumers from the rising cost of living, despite the fact that Minnie’s Hillary Clinton-esque pantsuit wasn’t exactly being pushed on the public as some kind of indoctrination campaign – it’s just something Disneyland visitors will see at some point.
