    Oliver Twist may have wanted more, but university academics think the Charles Dickens classic is too much for some students. The novel has become the latest recipient of a 'trigger warning' amid fears its depictions of poverty and crime-ridden London could cause 'anxiety' or 'distress'. Staff at Royal Holloway, the University of London, have issued a content note for the book, alerting its readers to themes of 'child abuse', 'domestic violence' and 'racial prejudice'. One chapter which could be deemed to be upsetting for some is the workhouse scene, where the orphan Oliver delivers the infamous line, 'Please, sir, I want some more' – only to be hit with a ladle by the master, Mr Bumble. The details of the warning on the Victorian Literature, Art and Culture MA course emerged in a Freedom of Information request by The Mail on Sunday.

    Another day, another Disney animated film is up for a lesser live-action remake. The latest film dusted off from the vault, however, has created a stir with Peter Dinklage. In a recent episode of Marc Maron's "WTF" podcast, the "Game of Thrones" actor Peter Dinklage criticized the upcoming "Snow White" remake for its portrayal of the title character's mentors and saviors. Last June, it was announced that "West Side Story" star Rachel Zegler — who is of Colombian and Polish descent — would play the film's titular character. While her casting made the character more inclusive, that same degree of thoughtfulness however, was not afforded to the narratives of Snow White's seven companions. "Literally no offense to anyone, but I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White — but you're still telling the story of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,'" Dinklage told Maron. "Take a step back and look at what you're doing there. It makes no sense to me," Dinklage continued. "You're progressive in one way,...
    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Attorneys spent the first week of Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial sparring over who provoked whom, with prosecutors portraying the Illinois teenager as the aggressor and the defense working to show that the men he shot had threatened him. The stakes are enormous as jurors weigh whether Rittenhouse fired in self-defense because he legitimately felt threatened or whether he overreacted. “To establish self-defense, the first prong is the defense must show there was going to be interference with Rittenhouse and that Rittenhouse had a belief that could result in great bodily harm,” said former Milwaukee County prosecutor Daniel Adams, who isn’t involved in the case. Rittenhouse brought a semi-automatic rifle to a protest against police brutality in Kenosha in August 2020. The city was in the throes of several nights of chaotic demonstrations after a white police officer shot Jacob Blake, a Black man, after Blake resisted arrest during a domestic dispute. Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, said he was trying to protect downtown businesses from looters and vandals. He’s charged with homicide and attempted...
    The article was authored by feminist writer Danielle Campoamor Fashion magazine Marie Claire has been slammed by pro-life and conservative groups after publishing an article that calls for more depictions of abortion in film and television.  The article, by feminist writer Danielle Campoamor, argues that there should be more plotlines involving parents having the medical procedure because examples of abortion in the media often involve single, affluent teenagers who aren't ready to be mothers. The piece adds that abortion is a saving grace for pregnant parents who are financially struggling and can't afford to have another child. It reads, 'Simply put, limiting or otherwise trying to stifle access to safe, legal abortion services not only harms pregnant people but also the children they're already caring for.'  But pro-life and conservative readers dragged the article on Twitter.

    Allyson Riggs/Hulu Abortion has become an increasingly discussed topic as the future of reproductive rights are jeopardized.  To destigmatize and educate about abortion, two researchers made a database on television and movie depictions. They say the best depictions show a diverse range of people and types of abortions and highlight access issues. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. As the Supreme Court prepares to hear a case that could overturn Roe v. Wade and end federal reproductive rights, political conversations about abortion have intensified. Though abortion rights are a regular political conversation in the media, researchers Gretchen Sisson and Steph Herold found discussions about how abortions work and their aftermath were rarely touched. As researchers at University of California San Francisco's Advancing New Standard in Reproductive Health program (ANSIRH), they created a database of on-screen abortion portrayals. The database tracks television shows and movies from 1916 until present day that mention or depict a person terminating their pregnancy. They found that most on-screen abortions don't accurately portray the average American's experience because they fail to illustrate the...
    Meghan Markle discussed the deeply personal story behind her new children’s book "The Bench" as well as the important role diversity and inclusivity played in its creation.  The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex sat down for an interview with NPR prior to the birth of her and Prince Harry’s second child, Lilibet "Lilii" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, that debuted on Sunday’s "Weekend Edition." In the interview, she discussed the origin of the book, appropriately rooted in the Father’s Day holiday. Meghan explained that she was racking her brain trying to think of a first Father’s Day gift for Harry following the birth of their first child, Archie. She noted that she wanted something "sentimental and a place for him to have as a bit of a home base with our son."  She opted to get him a bench with a plaque on the back that included a poem that would eventually become the New York Times best-seller, "The Bench." The book is a series of vignettes featuring intimate stories between fathers and their sons that focus on spending time together on a bench....

    LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistan police Monday arrested the leader of a radical Islamist political party a day after he threatened the government with protests if it did not expel France’s ambassador over depictions of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Saad Rizvi was arrested in the eastern city of Lahore to “maintain law and order,” said Ghulam Mohammad Dogar, chief of Lahore police. Rizvi called on the government to honor what he said was a commitment it made in February to his party to expel the French envoy before April 20 over the publication in France of depictions of Islam’s Prophet. The government has said that it only committed to discuss the matter in Parliament. Dogar provided no further details about the arrest, which quickly drew condemnation from Rizvi’s supporters. They had begun gathering near the party’s main office for a protest, raising fears for violence. On Monday, they blocked some roads in Lahore, prompting the government to deploy additional police. Rizvi emerged as the leader of the Tehreek-e-Labiak Pakistan party in November after the sudden death of his father,...
    BURBANK (CBSLA) – Kids’ profiles on the Disney+ streaming platform are now restricted from watching several classic Disney children’s movies due to what the platform calls “negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures”.

    Disney+ has quietly pulled Dumbo, Peter Pan, Swiss Family Robinson and The Aristocrats off children's profile on their streaming service in a bid to reconcile Disney long history of using racist stereotypes and negative depictions in their films.  The four films that have been pulled from the kids profiles still remain on adult profiles on Disney+ but now come with an advisory warning about the movies.  'This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,' the advisory reads.  It's the latest in a move toward sanitizing cultural staples that are now seen by some to be offensive: The company that looks after Dr. Seuss's books said it would stop publishing six of them that they said were racially problematic. And Hasbro said it would stop branding its line of potato toys as 'Mr. Potato Head' to make room for same-sex and single-parent variations.  Disney itself, it was reported this month, holds monthly meetings with advocates from women and minority groups who comb through hundreds of hours of Disney-streamed content looking for potentially offensive material to flag on its...

    Walt Disney Co. is revamping one of its oldest theme park attractions to address long-standing concerns the ride is culturally insensitive.  For decades, the "Jungle Cruise" at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, has ferried visitors on imaginary river safaris set in Africa, Asia and South America. In parts of the ride, native peoples are portrayed as subservient savages and even cannibals, long drawing criticism from some park goers.  Chris Beatty, creative portfolio executive with Disney, said in an interview posted on its site that the company wants riders to disembark from the Jungle Cruise feeling like it was "respectful of the diverse world we live in." "When you look at the Jungle Cruise, as it is today, there are just a couple of scenes that don't do that and needed a refresh," Beatty said. "It's the Jungle Cruise you know and love, with the skippers still leading the way, and at the same time, we're addressing the negative depictions of natives." The Jungle Cruise debuted at Disneyland in July 1955 and is based on the company's...
    ANAHEIM (CBSLA) — Disneyland is making more changes and updates to some of its fan-favorite rides, this time to the world-famous Jungle Cruise. Disney says it is removing what it calls racially-insensitive depictions of native people from the ride. The updated ride will for the first time incorporate the skipper as a figure in the cruise’s story. (credit: Disney) “As Imagineers, it is our responsibility to ensure experiences we create and stories we share reflect the voices and perspectives of the world around us,” Carmen Smith, of Walt Disney Imagineering’s Creative Development & Inclusion Strategies, said in a statement. “With Jungle Cruise, we’re bringing to life more of what people love – the humor and wit of our incredible skippers, while making needed updates.” (credit: Disney) Disney says the makeover is happening independent of an upcoming Jungle Cruise-inspired film starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson, who will coincidentally be playing a skipper. The changes are expected at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World in Florida, where the ride is currently open.
