People are boycotting the latest Disney Pixar flick because it may or may not feature a lesbian couple. The latest trailer for the Finding Nemo sequel came out about two weeks ago, and around the 1 minute mark, two women try to give a bottle back to a baby in a stroller, only to be surprised when they see an octopus in the baby’s place. The entire thing takes about three seconds, but the internet is freaking out! There are calls for a boycott against the movie, and Disney, for putting a gay couple in a children’s movie. The company hasn’t confirmed if the two women are a lesbian couple- if they are, it would be the first time an openly gay couple made an appearance in a Disney movie.
Of course, there’s also this fun fact that many boycotters seem to have forgotten: the main character of this movie, Dory, is voiced by Ellen DeGeneres… who is a fantastic, hilarious and spectacular lesbian.
