How utterly ridiculous. As if removing gator characters from the theme parks is doing anything for safety at the theme parks. Like removing gator characters is somehow magically making all the lakes and surrounding swamps gator free and family friendly again!

I have no sympathy at all for the gator-type characters and the blood lust they represent.

Will they stop selling Gatorade as well or asking the company to change its name in case a few "generation snowflake" parents get offended.

From the Tic-Toc Croc in “Peter Pan,” who helps take down Captain Hook - to Louis, the jazz-loving gator from “Princess and the Frog” - alligator and crocodile references are disappearing from new and decade-old attractions at the parks.





I know it was a tragedy, but really??? Who got offended?
