Disney Plus adds content warning to The Muppet Show episodes

 
Streaming platform Disney Plus has added a content warning to the beginning of 18 episodes of The Muppet Show.
 
The platform which started airing the show on Friday, said the programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures.
 
Disney Plus said these stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now, and rather than removing the episodes, they wants to acknowledge the harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future.
 
The variety show ran for 120 episodes in the 1970s and features puppet characters interacting with celebrity guests.
