Nothing brings out horrible things quite like diving deep into what you shouldn't Google as it pertains to anything Disney-related. The good news is that any amount of research into some of the more sinister rumors about Walt Disney show that most are simply not true. There's one case of a woman being denied employment at Disney for being a woman in the early days of the enterprise, but a few years later, Disney actually became a pioneer for gender equality in the workplace.
However, the same doesn't quite go for all of the Disney properties. A number of depraved, disgusting, weird, fringe, and ultimately tragic fan creations, cultures, and stories have come from canonical Disney movies. Possibly the purest, most family-friendly films in entertainment history have led people to indulge in some of the craziest things you will ever see on the internet.
From dating sites to extremely specific "interests", the list of Disney things you shouldn't Google (along with all the creepy Disneyland stories that come with them) could go on forever. But this selection of the darkest Disney fandoms is a clear, concise, and carefully-curated summary of the horrors you can face on Google if you just dare to look. Check out the list below and vote up the Disney things you should never type into that search bar.
Furries really do change your perspective on everything. This has never been more true than when Zootopia was released. Disney has already been called out for inspiring an entire generation of furries by making their eponymous Robin Hood character an attractive, charming, charismatic fox.
And ever since the film came out, NSFW pictures of Zootopia characters have flooded the internet.
There are no real words to describe the Dirty Disney Confessions tumblr. Be warned: if you visit this blog, you can't unsee it. DDC is a tumblr that features various "confessions" written as short-form desires next to screencaps of Disney characters they want to get down and "dirty" with. The tumblr goes on to feature a smattering of characters being ravaged in the bedroom, and sometimes, it's them that's doing the ravaging. You'll never see Disney characters in the same way again.
An artsy rendition of Snow White hit New York's Art Frieze as they welcomed artist Paul McCarthy and his adult performance art version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Titled simply "WS" (for "White Snow," which is both Snow White backwards, and an iron clad defense in court), the rendition of a childhood classic involves some very tawdry actions.
This might sound like something fun to play in a drinking game to with your friends, but it is extremely obnoxious.
Okay, so this one ought to ruin your childhood: it's a depiction of a lusty "meet-up" of Disney characters. The illustration originated in a subversive political/social satire magazine called The Realist, which was edited and published by Paul Krassner. It started in 1958 and discontinued publication in 2001.
Krassner described how Disney reacted to seeing this poster: "The Disney corporation considered a lawsuit, but realized that The Realist was published on a proverbial shoestring, and besides, why bother causing themselves further public embarrassment?"
This was such a subversive act on the part of The Realist that individual acts of censorship snuck through the cracks as some Baltimore newspapers distributed the issue of the magazine with the image removed. Krassner secured some missing pages and offered to send them to any reader who'd ended up buying only a partial magazine.
