Disneyland To Remove Bride Auction Scene From Pirates Of The Caribbean

Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean ride is set to undergo refurbishment in 2018 - which will include one major change to the ride's storyline.

Disney announced that it's removing the bride auction scene from the ride at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. The scene currently depicts a male pirate offering up a redhead for auction with a line of women tied up to be auctioned as well.

The altered scene will show the redhead as a "plundering pirate" holding a rifle. She will wear a pirates hat instead of a bonnet as she demands locals give up their goods.

The move comes after years of criticism over the offensiveness of the scene. Many have been critical of the scene's misogynistic tone.

In recent years, similar scenes have been removed, including one that shows pirates chasing women around. The park placed a tray of food in the woman's hands so that it appears the man is chasing after the food and not her specifically.
