The American homophobic group One Million Moms has called for boycotts over Toy Story 4 claiming it ‘desensitises children’ to same-sex relationships.

In a sweet but very subtle moment in the fourth instalment of the popular Pixar franchise, two mothers are seen picking up their child from kindergarten – it’s a blink and you’ll miss it moment.

But obviously the American bigoted group One Million Moms are calling for people to boycott the film, which had one of the most successful opening weekends of any movie this year.

Monica Cole, the leader of the homophobic group, tried to defend the boycott but ridiculously saying: “Later, the moms return to pick up their child who gives them a hug.

“The scene is subtle in order to desensitise children. But it is obvious that the child has two mothers, and they are parenting together.

Toy Story 4 is the last place parents would expect their children to be confronted with content regarding sexual orientation.

“Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon. It is extremely common yet unnecessary.

“Disney has decided once again to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment.

“Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda and exposing children to controversial topics.”
