    And when did anyone ever confuse 'Maddy' with 'Mammy'?

    What a load of dung.......

    Hmmmm ...

    Wonder if the community that complained about Maddy realizes HOW MANY Maddys (Maddie, Madi, etc) there are our there now?

    As a parent of one, does that mean I'm racist?

    OR, should I be in a some sort of full-on tirade about the discrimination against young girls w/ that name. My APPARENTLY but through NO KNOWLEDGE OF MINE racially-named Maddie would have loved to have an important character named the same.

    Unfortunately, the only maid in this house is me ... even on mother's day!

    Good grief. I like PRE politically correct days myself.

    Guess I better go look into changing my child's name....

    Maybe they {Disney/Pixar} heard of the new French leader that won the elections over there recently, who said that he wants to have a closer relationship with us, and wants to be friendlier then they have been in recent years with the USA....... Hey, it's a thought.:confused3

    PS: I ain't stickin' up for the French, as I said, it's just a thought.:goodvibes

    I think maybe because they have a park over there and it would be hard to sell all the wonderful stuff that will be out for a year before the movie.

    Think about now at DLRP pick your own Frog Princess.

    Oh and I agree and think they should just close that park down anyhow.

    I knew someone with a daughter they called Mady (short for Madison). They were just fans of the movie Splash. :confused3 Never considered or confused Mady with the word mammy. :confused: :sad2:

    Geez, come on, if this is how life is going to be that we are going to be watched if we say or write one thing that someone disagrees with, that is has to be racial.

    I don't get that. Okay so they wanted to make Maddy a chambermaid ummm wasn't Cinderella and Snow White the same thing before they became Princesses? So why can't Maddy do the same thing and show the new "Little Princesses" out there that she too can overcome adversity and be what she dreamed to be?

    Why should it be different for this princess? I just don't get people nowadays I really don't.

    Why do we have to pick on everyone? Just because someone has a difference in opinion doesn't mean we have to jump down their throat or have them fired.

    This is someone's creation and even before anything is done they have to fight for what their vision is. No wonder there isn't anything more creative coming out, they can't do it because someone will get offended and it will never happen.

    So they will keep remaking movies and Broadway shows and nothing origianl will come out it. Such a shame because I am sure there are many fabulous young people out there who have that creativity but will be afraid to show what they can do.

    Sorry for the rant:hyper:

    What a ridiculous pile of crap. I knew that Disney was going to get nothing but grief once this project was announced. It won't be long until Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson get their hands in this and ruin it once & for all.

    Yeah, it's sad that Disney can't just make a movie and try to make it the best the can't without outside worries.

    Can't wait to see what protests come if (hopefully!) SOTS is rereleased.

    I hope they eliminate any references to "Dixie" in the film. Afterall, Disney felt it necessary to rename "Dixie Landings" in order not to be offensive.

    Exactly. In the school where my son went to kindergarten, there were 5 Madisons. There were 25 girls. You do the math.

    This is ridiculous. :sad2:
