Felines in Uproar over “Lion King”

Following some protest by Arab groups last year over Disney’s film Aladdin, numerous members of the feline family have come forward to publicly decry Disney’s newest release, The Lion King. “I feel they really should have run it by us first before releasing it to the public,” said Aslan the lion, President of the UCBLA “We are always portrayed on film as either menacing and vicious, or totally cowardly, and frankly we’re fed up with it.” When asked how he thought images of lions onscreen might be changed, Aslan suggested, “I don’t know. Perhaps we need to get more lion directors working in Hollywood.” He then promptly gutted and ate our reporter.
