Disney wants Tigger costume changed for molestation trial

Walt Disney World wants to protect the innocent image of Tigger during an upcoming sexual molestation trial of an employee dressed as the character, and has asked that the orange striped costume be changed for the case, an attorney said. Michael Chartrand was charged with molesting a 13-year-old girl in February while he was dressed as Tigger at Disney World's Toon Town.

So let me get this straight. The accused man will have to dress up at Tigger to prove his innocence? Or, will the jury have to each have to get into the costume as well? I wonder if Court TV will cover that one.

I suppose in his defense they're going to argue that there's no way in hell one could "molest" someone with those giant gloves on.

Couldn't they just put the gloves on and nothing else? Is it really necessary to put on the entire costume? Maybe the gloves won't fit and they will have to acquit.

No, I think all the jurors are going to stand in place while a Tigger character moves to touch the breast of each juror while a judge asks "Do you feel molested?"

"You know, I would, but just how can I hate that cute little face!"
