A Disney video of a kale-filled, roux-less "healthy gumbo" caused so much social media criticism on Sept. 13, that the clip has been removed from Facebook.
Per Buzzfeed, Louisianians apparently experienced one big, collective meltdown after the gumbo video, which was marketed along with Princess Tiana of the popular New Orleans-set movie, "The Princess and the Frog," went viral.
The recipe isn’t just a “healthier” version of gumbo; it’s not gumbo at all. Can you imagine pizza without a crust? Or spaghetti and meatballs without the pasta? Would you call two buns with a pinch of relish in the middle a hot dog? No, no, no! And that’s why Disney’s recipe, which included kale and quinoa and axed an essential ingredient of gumbo -- the roux -- received such passionate backlash.
I can't believe Disney out here tryna tell y'all Tiana was putting Kale & Quinoa in a roux-less Gumbo.— RK Jackson | Atlanta (@theerkj) September 14, 2016
Lie again and tell me Tiana was down in New Orleans putting kale in gumbo. https://t.co/QEgTgqxGAM— sa da tay (@meagnacarta) September 13, 2016
I am 100% positive that the bible says eating gumbo made with kale and quinoa is a sin https://t.co/Pebm22xxvn— molly ann (@mollyann17) September 13, 2016
Leave the gumbo to the experts next time, Disney.
