VOTE: Disneyland Replacing Controversial Pirates Of The Caribbean Ride Feature! Do YOU Think It Implies ‘Impending Sexual Assault’??

no title

The controversial Disneyland Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, depicting a redheaded woman (among other women) up for sale under a banner reading, “Auction, Take a wench for a bride,” is getting a makeover.

When the park reopens after routine maintenance next year, the iconic character will become a pirate herself with a gun and liquor bottle resting against her hips (pictured above), as she stands proudly under a sign that says, “Auction, Surrender yer loot.”

Further, a different scene showing pirates chasing women will be changed to those women now holding trays of food that the pirates are viciously going after. In another, a woman chases a pirate instead of the other way around.

Theme Park Insider calls this a move to “remove (or at least, soften) the insinuation of impending sexual assault.”

While many Disney fans don’t want to see any changes to the historic attraction, a rep for the park told the Orange County Register:

“We believe the time is right to turn the page to a new story in this scene, consistent with the humorous, adventurous spirit of the attraction.”

So, what do you think — do YOU agree with the makeover?? Vote (below)!
