Kristen Bell says she’s troubled by the messaging in "Snow White"

While Bell was only discussing her view on the matter and what she's teaching her children, it sparked a lot of conversation on social media as parents and Disney fans far and wide chimed in to defend the story of "Snow White".
She revealed that, while she loves reading bedtime stories to her children, she has been forced to use the example of Snow White to help teach her daughters about the importance of consent.
She said she reads to her daughters, 5-year-old Lincoln and 3-year-old Delta, every day.
Food from a stranger is hardly the only part of Snow White that Bell takes issue with; there's also the uninvited kiss The Prince gives Snow while she's sleeping.
"Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask: 'Don't you think that it's weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?'" "Or where she got that apple?'" Bell, who is married to Dax Shepard, said to Parenting.

"When you think rationally about "Snow White" and 'Sleeping Beauty, ' that tell of a 'princess being woken up by the kiss of a prince, ' they are describing sexual assault on an unconscious person", she wrote in Japanese, according to Fox News. "Bell asked her daughters "[because] you cannot kiss someone if they're sleeping!" "I've had that feeling, and I want my girls to know that you're allowed to feel it", she said.
Bell's comments come on the heels of fellow Disney star Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms) saying that she "banned" her daughter from watching Cinderella and The Little Mermaid. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a fan of "Brave's" Princess Merida-a young teen who proficiently wields her deadly weapon in defense of her Bear family-and "The Princess and the Frog's" Tiana-a young woman whose success is reliant on her hard work, capitalistic opportunity and a talking Cajun firefly. "Hello? But I love 'The Little Mermaid" so that one's a little tricky one, but no, I'm keeping to it".
Others noted that the non-consensual kiss is far from the most alarming thing to happen in the story of "Snow White". "Don't. Rescue yourself, obviously".
Plenty of people pointed out Bell's interesting take on Snow White. Know the difference between abuse and affection. Do you agree with her take on Snow White?
