Candace Owens has been trolled mercilessly on the internet after she took the makeover of a Disney character, Minnie Mouse, too seriously and accused the entertainment company of “trying to destroy fabrics of our society”. The political commentator’s remarks came after Disneyland Paris announced that the cartoon character will wear a pantsuit for the park’s 30th-anniversary celebration.

As per a report by The Wrap, Minnie Mouse’s new attire has been designed by English fashion designer Stella McCartney. The report stated, “In a world where the appearance of corporate mascots (and their relationship to cultural norms regarding sexuality and gender) is discussed endlessly, one of the most iconic figures has entered the gladiatorial arena, and this time, she’s wearing pants. Disneyland Paris, the sprawling entertainment complex outside of Paris, on Wednesday announced that Minnie Mouse would be getting her first pantsuit as part of the park’s 30th-anniversary celebration,” before adding the change in style “is a continuation of Minnie’s legacy as a style trailblazer and a wonderful step in the right direction for Minnie.”

But Owens seemed totally unhappy with the new development. After appearing with Jesse Watters on Fox News, she sarcastically said, “I’m so glad they are doing this, let me just tell you, Jesse. It goes back to like, when they did this to the M&Ms, and now they’re making her more masculine, and I’m glad that they’re now realizing that this needed to be addressed. You know, all of us were traumatized when we saw Minnie Mouse and she was looking like a female, as we were growing up.”

She went on to add: “They are taking all of these things that nobody was offended by. It’s like they have to get rid of them and destroy them because they’re bored. You know, they’re absolutely bored. They’re trying to destroy fabrics of our society, pretending that there’s issues so everybody looks over here. ‘Look at Minnie Mouse. Don’t look at inflation, Jesse. Look at Minnie Mouse.’ The world is going forward because you’ve got her in a pantsuit. Never mind that you can’t get anything at the grocery store, and you can’t buy a piece of bacon unless you’ve got $30 in your pocket. At least we’re addressing the real problem, which is Minnie Mouse.”

Owens’ point of view was soon canceled by the people on the internet as a user tweeted, “Who still listens to this clown?” The second user said, “Hearing JW & CO going on and on about Minnie’s attire, is why we don’t take THEM seriously! Huge issues facing this country but Candy & her sidekick grouse on about M&Ms and Disney…good grief.” The third one wrote, “Candace freaking out about Minnie wearing a pantsuit while she is wearing a pantsuit?  How embarassing for her.  I remember her rant when she was jealous because Harry Styles looked better in a dress than she ever could.”

A person noted, “What does she mean by ‘these people’? Who? Who called for Disney to change these designs? No one. There is no reason why anyone should be THIS upset over something so insignificant.” “Candace Owens: There are important things to discuss. Candace Owens, in the same breath: But let’s discuss Minnie Mouse’s costume on national TV,” another one added.
