While Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are in the spotlight after allegations of sexism, the French cartoonist Coco is criticized many times after the publication of one of her drawings in Liberation.

A drawing that goes wrong

Despite the fact that he introduced the codes of the cartoon in the decades to come, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, published in 1937, has been heavily criticized. We recently told you about American journalists’ criticism of the very first cartoon in history, as the kissing scene was at least with approval representative of the “main problem” Disney had in its first few films.

Obviously, these criticisms did not go unnoticed. While some activists, including feminists, stand next to watching the two journalists, others believe it is about breaking culture. An explosive debate, to say the least, especially considering that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs isn’t the first big-eared studio work to be singled out. But the controversy just got worse after Liberation newspaper published a cartoon by press cartoonist Coco.

We see Prince Charming from the movie asking Snow White for permission to kiss him. The latter replies that he is “stuck”. A drawing that did not fail to respond to social networks. Some internet users even went so far as to believe that Coco and Liberation were justifying rape.

The culture of rape:
-a woman who sleeps with more than one person would necessarily agree
– A man who asks for approval is stuck
It’s a shame https://t.co/AZCa2VHtKc

How fun it is to make fun of good people and justify assholes! This scene is not problematic and the cancellation of the film does not seem necessary to me, but we have to recognize and explain to the children that the Disney films are the reflection of a bygone era https://t.co/Oh3Pppzzee

Imagine you are a woman and you manage to draw such problematic things ud83d udc4d https://t.co/fd7Wg5HEpA

But think about two minutes before doing such things. It’s not going well. Nobody thought there was a problem. Https://t.co/KKQ5Cx7VMN

Nothing that says in this drawing: Not because you sleep right to left you agree with everything, but hey, you’re too dumb to have it engraved on your head. And then a man asking for consent is not stuck, just respectful. https://t.co/YGgbMXuEC9

ud83d ude21 does consent mean something to you? Or maybe decency? https://t.co/XazNF884hI

Coco has worked at Charlie Hebdo for several years and is obviously used to controversy. He didn’t fail to respond by posting another drawing on his Twitter page that doesn’t fail either.

The cartoonist, who has arrived at the Liberation since April 2021, replaces the famous cartoonist Willem. Also note that Coco is not the first cartoonist to be controversial in early 2021. We spoke to you a few weeks ago about Xavier Gorce, who quit Le Monde after an incest drawing that sparked controversy.
