Disney closes anti-obesity exhibit because of negative perception

Posted Friday, March 2, 2012 10:19 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Shortly after its unofficial opening last month, the interactive Habit Heroes exhibit was blasted by critics for stigmatizing fat kids. Now, Disney has closed the Innoventions exhibit for "retooling." One organization says it falls under "the shadow of negativity and discrimination."

No, I was asking Phillip if he was sure that LK 'forgot' to mention heterosexual. He seems to think that just because he wants to be at the beach with a woman that everyone else does too. I don't think he realizes how many non heterosexuals there are in the coaster community. Perhaps another reason why he didn't click with everyone at the event he went to.

I learned something today: A homophobic person who loves parades will probably not make new friends at a gay pride parade.

From now on I'll try really hard to not directly feed trolls.

I like parades of gay people and I'm not gay. If you haven't seen a Fantasy Fest parade in Key West then you haven't lived.

CoasterBuzz doesn't count because there isn't a buffet with fat people attacking it.
