Here's Some Fucked Up Shit You Never Noticed About "Beauty And The Beast"

Enough is enough.

Posted on

Hello, world. My name is Stephen, and I'm here to ruin your favorite childhood film, Beauty and the Beast.

Disney

Now don't get me wrong. I freaking LOVE this movie. It's a classic! But I recently re-watched it as an adult, and I have some bad news for you...

Disney

Every single character is a massive fucking asshole. They're all a bunch of dicks! Let's break it down:

Disney

We'll start with Belle. Yes, she's an asshole!

Disney

She acts so holier-than-thou all the time. She sings rude songs about her neighbors like they can't even hear her:

BELLE: There goes the baker with his tray like always BAKER: well there goes Belle, singing her DAILY MEAN SONG about us

I mean, really, she's very condescending!

Belle could have easily set up some kind of literacy program in her town instead of being a pretentious snit about it

Belle CLAIMS she wants more than this ~provincial life~ — and then becomes a princess in a big empty castle in the middle of nowhere. She sold out all her values for a man!

Disney

Next up: the Beast. He's an asshole!

Disney

As a prince, he was selfish and vain. He and all his friends are put under a curse LITERALLY because of how terrible he is.

Disney

So what does he do to reverse that curse? He abducts a woman and holds her hostage until she falls in love with him. Fucked up!

Disney

And then we have the enchanted objects — Lumière, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts — and yes, even Chip. They're all assholes, too.

Disney

If they REALLY gave a fuck about Belle, they would let her escape. Instead, they trick an innocent woman into falling in love with a monster-man, so they can be freed from a curse. Do these people have no moral compass?

Disney

Next up is Maurice. Yup, asshole!

Disney

Maurice started this whole mess by trespassing on private property. That's breaking and entering, dude!

Disney

Also, some believe Maurice is responsible for his wife's untimely death:

Do we all agree there is a 100% chance an earlier version of this machine killed Belle's mom

And finally, we have the villains. Needless to say, they're all assholes. Gaston is a sexist pig, Le Fou is complicit as well, yada yada. This one's obvious.

Disney

Listen, I love Beauty and the Beast as much as the next guy. But every single character in this film needs to take a long, hard look in that magic mirror. THEY'RE ALL ASSHOLES.

Disney

Except for the stepstool-dog. He's cool. He can stay.
