Family Sues Disneyland Claiming White Rabbit Character Is “Racist”


A San Diego family is alleging that a castmember in a rabbit costume at Disneyland is racist.  Jason Black Jr., 6, was on a trip with his family to Disneyland in August when he wanted to meet his favorite character, the White Rabbit.

“I went to hug him but he turned his back,” Jason told . “It’s made me feel sad because I wanted to really hug him.” His older brother, Elijah, said he tried to hold the character’s hand, but the employee kept pushing his hand away.

The Black family has filed a lawsuit against The Walt Disney Company, claiming that the children were discriminated against by the person portraying the rabbit because they are black.  The boys’ father, Jason LeRoy Black Sr., had initially thought the park had implemented a new policy preventing the characters from touching children.

After filing the complaint, the family was offered VIP passes, which they reportedly declined. The family’s attorney Dan Gilleon, said the Black family is asking Disney to issue a public apology and terminate the castmember who portrays the White Rabbit.

Disney has not publicly commented on the allegations yet.
