Disney Removed A Recipe For "Healthy" Gumbo After Southerners Called Them Out

WHERE'S THE ROUX, DISNEY.

Posted on

And people did not hesitate to tell Disney to back the fuck off.

I can't believe Disney out here tryna tell y'all Tiana was putting Kale & Quinoa in a roux-less Gumbo.

I'm fairly certain Tiana is shaking her head and saying "That ain't MY gumbo, leave me outta this!" #gumbostrong https://t.co/NpGC6fdOB5

@meagnacarta @Disney @Disney_Family idk who's gumbo but this ain't Tiana's. Maybe Cinderella's or Snow White's

It's basically sacrilegious.

I am 100% positive that the bible says eating gumbo made with kale and quinoa is a sin https://t.co/Pebm22xxvn

Others pointed out the whole thing is especially ridiculous considering the character of Tiana in The Princess and the Frog was inspired by Leah Chase.

THIS IS NOT GUMBO. Plus it’s an insult to Ms Leah Chase who inspired Tiana. https://t.co/GcycOqWQRX

Disney had originally shared the recipe video on both Twitter and Facebook, but both posts have since been deleted. The YouTube video has also been made private.

WAITTTT DISNEY DELETED THE TIANA GUMBO TWEET IM SCREAMING

But it's been reposted here with some added, important commentary.
