Strange Disney Lawsuits: Donald Duck Groping Case Settled

You may find them to be the Happiest Places on Earth, but Disney Parks and Resorts are about to be exposed.

That's right, hidden from view by Mickey-shaped popsicles and mermaid princesses are fire-breathing nachos and pervy characters, all brought to light by the brave souls willing to file a lawsuit.

In an attempt to suppress the most recent Disney lawsuit alleging that Donald Duck was the newest of the Disney World characters to grope a member of the public, the purveyor of family fun has settled.

That's right--an undisclosed amount has been paid to one April Magolon to drop her lawsuit in which she claimed that Donald Duck grabbed her breast and then made some unsavory motions with his webbed feet indicating that it was a joke.

And while no one can blame her for dropping the Disney lawsuit for a chunk of Disney dough, it's a shame that the 24 other incidents involving Disney World characters and inappropriate touching will now be swept right back under Mickey's rug.

Now, if this isn't enough to break you of your unhealthy Disney obsession, consider the following unsavory allegations that have been made against Disney in the past:

  • Disney attacked a child by serving him nacho cheese that scalded his mouth and face.
  • Disney banned a woman from a park after she rode Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror 50 times a day to alleviate a medical condition.
  • Disney stranded a poor man on "It's a Small World" for 40 minutes.

Though sexual assault by Disney World characters is pretty scary, that last Disney lawsuit takes the cake.

Or the mouse ears.
