While many have been freely criticizing Snow White actress Rachel Zegler for her past comments about the iconic Disney Princess, one journalist stood up for her and slammed Disney fans for their behavior.

Rachel Zegler has been surrounded by controversy for the last few weeks. The actress who plays Snow White in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of the 1937 original animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, recently went viral for her comments about the original Disney princess and the implied “backward” nature of the film—think of her statement that it’s no longer 1937.

However, while many have taken the actress to task for her words, enough that she had to release an apology video explaining that she was “the most grateful person alive,” one journalist from Metro had enough of how Disney fans were treating the actress and defended her, sharing, “Rachel Zegler was right to criticize Snow White – how dare Disney fans attack her?”

In the article, the author explained, “As a long-time Disney fan, it makes me – quite frankly – ashamed to be associated in any way with this group, as well as the online trolls fanning the flames of anger without any proper context.”

The author wrote that she “failed to see what the big problem was” when it came to Zegler’s comments, adding that it’s commonly accepted that the original Snow White story is certainly outdated and problematic by modern standards.

She also reminds readers that “Snow White *is* scary, especially that sequence when she runs through that terrifying forest, filled with twisting, howling trees that are heavily influenced by the darker aspects of German Expressionism,” referencing Zegler’s comment that the original animated movie scared her.

The writer notes that the backlash that Zegler is facing is “particularly cruel,” and perhaps we would be better left waiting for the movie to come out before criticizing the actress so heavily.
