    19 Beloved Disney Characters People Actually Can't Stand

    If I were Belle, I would simply mind my own business.

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which Disney characters they were supposed to love, but couldn't stand. Here are the wild responses:

    Note: I, Kelly Martinez, do not necessarily endorse these opinions! Personally, Woody is my favorite character.

    1. Mary Poppins from Mary Poppins


    "My god, I have never wanted to slap a Disney character so much. For someone so prim and proper, she was really rude and condescending. Who on earth does she think she is?"


    2. Lilo from Lilo & Stitch


    "I feel like she was purposely difficult for her sister. Plus, her sister took her to an animal shelter with tons of needy dogs, and she chose an actual monster. Who does that?!"


    3. Lightning McQueen from Cars


    "He was self-centered and only cared about winning a race instead of being there for his friends. He’s a total jerk."


    4. Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs


    "She was so condescending to the dwarfs, who graciously let her stay in their house after she broke in."


    5. Olaf from Frozen


    "He isn't funny and all his songs are the same. He destroys every emotional moment in Frozen 2 and, in my opinion, adds nothing valuable to the plot."


    6. B.E.N. from Treasure Planet


    "He's the most gratingly irritating robotic creature to ever appear in cinema. All of the other Treasure Planet characters are so unique and cliche-defying. But then there's stupid B.E.N., who throws off the whole vibe."


    7. Genie from Aladdin


    "Unpopular opinion, but he's the worst Disney character of all time. He's too over-the-top and obnoxious. I've hated him since I was a kid."


    8. Woody from Toy Story


    "I don’t understand how we’re supposed to sympathize with him when all he does is whine and act petty."


    9. Belle from Beauty and the Beast


    "She literally sings a song to all of the people in her town about how she thinks they are all mediocre and she wants to be better than them."


    10. Prince Florian from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs


    "He’s seen as the hero of the story when all he did was show up, kiss a random teen he’d never met before, and ride off with her on his horse."


    11. Merida from Brave


    "Girl, I get that you're pissed at your mom, but go lock yourself in your room for a couple hours, overindulge in some haggis, rage knit or whatever the hell else you can do in medieval Scotland. Feeding your mom shady, druid pastries is NOT the answer. You're lucky your hair is literal fire or I would have to totally hate you."


    12. Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty


    "She might not be the worst character, but she's definitely the most forgettable. The most memorable thing about her is how little dialogue she has throughout the movie. What does she even do? No one knows."


    13. Ariel from The Little Mermaid


    "She's bratty, selfish, and shallow. She left her friends and entire family to go marry a guy she barely knew and only liked for his good looks."


    14. Anna from Frozen


    "Her sister went through all this trauma after being kept in isolation her whole life and all Anna cares about is her own needs. Whenever she's on-screen, I want a goose to swoop down and carry her away."


    15. Mr. Incredible from The Incredibles


    "He put his whole family in danger just because of a midlife crisis."


    16. King Agnarr from Frozen


    "He literally locked his own daughter away for years just because she was different."


    17. King Triton from The Little Mermaid


    "I know he had some issues with humans and was trying to protect his daughter, but he was so petty. Like, did he destroy Ariel's prized possessions to protect her or just to spite her?"


    18. John Smith from Pocahontas


    "Let's be honest, if he hadn't ended up having the hots for a local girl, his entire story would have just been him walking around chopping trees and singing about conquering nature."


    19. And finally, the majority of the comic relief characters


    "I hate most of the comic relief characters, like the gargoyles from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. They're incredibly annoying and ruin the atmosphere of the films. They get WAY too much of the screen time that would have been better spent on someone else."
