Universal Theme Park to Cancel Dr. Seuss Park Because Leftists Now Say He’s Racist

Universal Studios is now considering canceling its Dr. Seuss theme park attractions because leftists now say he and his books are “racist.”

After the company that manages the Dr. Seuss estate decided to stop licensing the six books that liberals now claim are “racist,” the Universal amusement park in Orlando, Florida, announced that it was “evaluating” its Dr Seuss attractions due to this manufactured controversy.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Geisel, first started his writing and illustration career in the 1940s, a time of very different sensibilities, especially where it concerns cartooning and caricatures. And now, liberals are looking to ban the man whose work has brought such joy and fun to learning to billions of people.

But now, Universal is jumping into the cancel culture, too.

Per My News 13:

In Central Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park features an area known as Seuss Landing, which includes characters and attractions inspired by the world of Dr. Seuss. A play area in that part of the park is themed after “If I Ran the Zoo,” one of the books that will no longer be published, and includes animals and interactive contraptions from Seuss’s stories. The book has been criticized for its portrayal of Asian people although none of that imagery is featured in the play area.

Seuss Landing also features a gift shop called Mulberry Street Store, which gets its name from “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” another book that will be discontinued. There’s also a Mulberry Street sign along the walkway.

Universal said it’s evaluating the in-park experiences in that area but visitors will still be able to enjoy Seuss Landing.

“Seuss Landing continues to be very popular with our guests and we value our relationship with Seuss Enterprises,” a Universal spokesperson said in a statement. “We’ve removed the books from our shelves as they have asked and we’ll be evaluating our in-park experience too. But our guests can plan on continuing to be able to enjoy their favorite experiences at Seuss Landing.”

Liberals destroy everything they touch.
