Damn, that rabbit looks so racist we’re surprised he doesn’t have a hood over that head.
A trip to the happiest place on Earth was anything but for a Spring Valley family who’s claiming they are victims of racism and are planning to file suit against Disneyland.
The Black family took a trip to Disneyland in August and their son Jason Black Jr. met his favorite character The Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.
“I went to hug him but he turned his back,” the 6-year-old said. “It’s made me feel sad because I wanted to really hug him.”
“The Rabbit was turning his back on him like he didn’t want to touch him,” said his older brother Elijah Black. “Then I went up and tried to hold his hand but he kept flicking my hand off.”
The family filed a lawsuit against the Anaheim theme park, claiming the person playing the character of The Rabbit discriminated against their children because they are black.
“I asked the rabbit, I said ‘he wants to hug you,’” said the boy’s mother, Annelia Black. “He’s like twirling his fingers, like hurry up take the picture.”
Their father said it was obvious The Rabbit was avoiding them.
Two white kids approached The Rabbit moments later.
“[The] Rabbit showered, hugged, kissed and posed with them and took pictures. That made my kids feel horrible, it made us as adults feel horrible,” said Jason LeRoy Black Sr.
The family said they immediately went to the management office to complain, showing them photos that they say indicate the rabbit was trying to avoid touching them.
