Please leave Disney charaters to the imagination of youg children alone. It's a sacrilege. Do your kinky staffs with the adults and not with children. The world is rotten as it is, leave them at least the clean characters of Disney alone and pure. Thank you.

I agree with the person above that using Disney characters is very poor form. Young children are going to wonder if those things really happened to the Princess's and the other characters. Using and kind of visual will be very hard to do because bullying in itself is very bad but showing in pictures of a cartoon character is horrifying. Even it you used a real or drawn person would be bad for any child under 12yrs. of age.

I think using familiar faces is good for children. Yes, it's horrible but may help children realize that they aren't the only ones getting bullied

The anonymous posters above don't understand the art, the message, or the meaning of sacrilege. Ignorance like that is why these messages are needed in the first place.

I think what you have done using these characters to get your bullying message across is irresponsible. Yes, this may be art, and yes you may get your point across. But all I see now is there is no escape from bullies. These cartoons are meant as escapes from pressures and troubles from real life. These images now show that there is no place safe from a bully and they will find you anywhere. I think it is just counter productive.

Okay first off, almost all of the above disney movies are racist or sexist and are not entirely fit for children anyway to comment back to an anonymous poster above. However I feel like with someone who grew up loving these movies, myself included, this would really hit home seeing these photos because I cared about these characters and seeing this makes me wish cyber bullying didn't exist and makes me want to do something about it. Which is what the artist is trying to instill in people. The fact that you are getting upset about it in the first place proves it works and plants a seed in your head about it.

Why cant you people see the point he is trying to make across? He is trying to stop cyber bullying and all you care about is the characters he used. He used them because they are close to our heart, they are recognizable and will draw attention to a huge problem in our society. This doesn't seem like it would be aimed at children, which by definition is 3-11. But more towards kids 12 and up who are entering puberty and entering the world of facebook and so forth. Please people do not be so quick to judge and ignorant.

I dislike that they used kind pure-hearted characters to depict the bullies. I mean, so many of these characters are role-models. I think it might make kids devastated to see a character that they looked to for strength being depicted as bullies. Especially when nothing about that character from within the movies would hint towards them acting like that. I find it in poor taste that two of the 'bullies' Mulan and Jasmine were actually characters that were supposed to teach girls that they didn't have to be weak. (Jasmine's 'I'm not a prize to be won.' and Well. Everything about Mulan)
