HONOLULU (AP) — Disney said Wednesday it would no longer sell a boy's costume for a Polynesian character that some Pacific Islanders have compared to blackface.
The getup depicts Maui — a revered figure in Polynesian oral traditions and viewed by some Pacific Islanders as an ancestor — who is a character in the upcoming animated movie "Moana." It has a long-sleeve brown shirt and long pants featuring full-body tattoos. It comes with a fake shark-tooth necklace and green-leaf "skirt."
HONOLULU (AP) — The Latest on Disney's costume for Maui, a character in its upcoming movie "Moana." (all times local):
Some Polynesians critical of a new Disney's costume are welcoming the company's move to stop selling it.
The costume depicts Maui, a legendary Polynesian figure featured in the upcoming animated movie "Moana." The brown outfit has long-sleeves and pants and full-body tattoos.
The question of "Where do babies come from?" has been answered, throughout movie history, with some unsavory characters. In the case of "Rosemary's Baby," a demonic neighbor was to blame. In "Knocked Up," it was Seth Rogen's doing. The truth can hurt.
