Rachel Zegler seemingly broke her silence over the weekend when she stepped out in New York City wearing a very telling sweater.
The 22-year-old has been at the center of a furious backlash from Disney fans following some comments she made about the original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs movie.
Rachel, who landed the role of the Disney Princess in an upcoming live action remake – admitted she ‘hated’ the 1937 classic and its ‘stalker’ Prince, as well as the ‘weird’ storyline, in a series of interviews that sparked anger on social media.
The brunette appeared to send a very clear message on Sunday when she ran errands in Downtown Manhattan wearing a gray jumper emblazoned with the words ‘no tears left to cry’.
Rachel teamed the garment with a pair of black cycling shorts, matching sunglasses and white sneakers, and wore her hair tied back as she soaked up the sun in the city.
The West Side Story star accessorized with a pair of hoop earrings and a black handbag, and was carrying a couple of brown envelopes as she strolled along the sidewalk.
Last week, several videos of Rachel speaking negatively about the original Snow White movie in various interviews resurfaced online, which led to many people slamming her – and some even accused the brunette of ‘gaslighting’ her fans.
As well as criticizing the ‘weird’ storyline, Rachel teased that in the new film, Snow White ‘is not going to be saved by the prince’ and ‘will not be dreaming about true love’.
In one video that was posted on TikTok earlier this month, and has since been viewed over 10.5 million times, user Angie, who goes by the handle @cosywithangie, criticized Rachel for failing to acknowledge that women have the right to pursue whatever they want.
Angie captioned the post: ‘Just because a woman values something different, does not make her any less valuable. Some women want a career and not marriage.
‘Some women want a marriage or family and not a job. Some women want BOTH. All are to be heard, and seen, and valued.
‘Write stories about ALL women and depict them ALL as valuable and worthy, instead of trying to mold them into one specific image of what you deem worthy. Thank you. #snowwhite #snowwhiteliveaction #snowwhitecontroversy #disney,’ she added.
