Disney Princess Shares Story of Sexual Assault

A Disney Princess recently shared a story about certain repeated instances of sexual assault she’d encountered while at a Disney Park.

While the Disney Parks—both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort—are often the sites of fairytales, but sometimes real life at the Park can be harsh. Disney has been finding itself at the center of controversy after controversy as its been reopening from the pandemic.

Now a story has come to light that highlights just how bad some Guests’ behavior can be, where Disney Characters and Cast Members have felt unsafe, and have been victims of sexual harassment.

YouTubers Cody Ko and Noel Miller recently hosted Twitch streamer QTCinderella on their podcast, Tiny Meat Gang. During the interview, QTCinderella revealed that it wasn’t being in character with the kids that was difficult about working at Disneyland Resort. As reported by Screenshot Media, QT Cinderella detailed,

“You have a zone, and you can’t be out there for too long because you get overheated obviously and kids are aggressive…[but] it’s actually not the kids. The worst part is the dads… You’re taking a photo with the whole family, they will just—”

QT Cinderella finished her sentence with a motion of her hand grabbing ‘something’ harshly.

The Twitch streamer shared that Cast Members aren’t allowed to break character so, instead had an emergency signal that let her escorts know when something went wrong.

“Mine was talking about Lucifer—Cinderella’s step mom’s cat. I would just randomly start bringing up Lucifer and they would pull me out of the situation. But if your a** is being grabbed, you can’t be like ‘Stop’ because Cinderella would not say stop…”

QT Cinderella continued, “That sounded so bad but you know, you’re playing a character.” She said as a Cast Member you couldn’t just ruin the child’s experience by telling their family member to stop being inappropriate.

QT Cinderella also explained there was one instance of a “repeat offender” who had become known for grabbing Disney princesses around the Park and attempting to kiss them. This particular individual was kicked out of Disneyland following their behavior.

It goes without saying that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and be it a Disney Princess or a Disney Character, or another Cast Member, they should always be treated with the utmost respect.
