Princeton Tigertones Cut Disney Song From Line-Up After Backlash
The Princeton Tigertones are Princeton University's all male a Capella choir. A very legendary bunch who dress in tuxedos while performing their classic musical sets.
Although one of their classic performances just got cut from their routine. The number that got dropped was a song from Disney's, Little Mermaid called "Kiss The Girl." The lyrics suggest that Price Eric kiss Ariel. During the performance they pick a girl and guy out of the crowd and force them to kiss at the end of the song.
Well, one columnist from the student newspaper was not a fan of this at all saying the lyrics promote "toxic masculinity" and made note of that in her article.
The crab sang:
Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
It’s possible she wants you too
There is one way to ask her
It don’t take a word
Not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl
That wasn't the only thing that didn't sit right with her, she also didn't like the force kiss at the end either.
The President of the Tigertones, Wesley Brown commented, "Performances ... have made participants uncomfortable and offended audience members, and outcome which is antithetical to our group's mission and one that we deeply regret."
With that being addressed the song has been cut from the groups set.
