Disney Puts 'Offensive Content’ Disclaimer On 'The Muppet Show'

There's no denying times have changed since The Muppet Show first aired back in the late '70s and early '80s. People have become much more aware of what warrants culturally offensive content, and it's important to educate ourselves and move forward with these lessons.

Now, it is being reported that Disney+ has placed an "offensive content" disclaimer at the beginning of each episode, and people have a lot to say about it.

Fans of the classic children's show were beyond thrilled to hear the series would be coming to the popular streaming service, Disney+.

All five seasons of the beloved TV series just launched on the streaming service this past Friday.

Much to the surprise of many viewers, however, 18 of the 118 of the episodes feature a disclaimer.

The disclaimer reads: "This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now... Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together."

While it's not stated precisely what Disney considers to be offensive, some characters depict Native American, Middle Eastern, and Asian people.

And in season five, Johnny Cash is seen performing in front of a Confederate flag.
