2021 is not going well for Dr. Seuss, who died in 1991.
Dr. Seuss — who is now a horrible racist — has been canceled by radical schools, far-Left learning organizations, President Joe Biden, and maybe even Universal Orlando.
Universal Orlando says it is “evaluating” the future of its kids’ play area named after Dr. Seuss’ If I Ran the Zoo. For those keeping up, that is one of the six books that was pulled from publication for too much Orientalism, white supremacy, and anti-blackness.
If the area does get the boot, hopefully, it just gets a new name and theme created by Robin DiAngelo, author of the racist White Fragility book. Because it looks rather fun, no?
Even worse, Universal Orlando has a gift shop called the Mulberry Street Store, named after another one of Dr. Seuss’ formerly available books.
“Seuss Landing continues to be very popular with our guests and we value our relationship with Seuss Enterprises,” a Universal spokesperson said. That’s not good news, the stuff most enjoyed is usually the first to fall.
Man, I must say, I think this park is really in trouble now.
“We’ve removed the books from our shelves as they have asked and we’ll be evaluating our in-park experience too,” the company added. Ahh, I see.
As always, fun is out, outrage is in. Now, we wait to see what side Universal Orlando will take.
