A Classic Tale
A course of events this past Friday, May 17th, led to something that could only be described as a resounding success for the Gluten Free community. I am so proud to be among this wonderful group of people.
We proved that there is power in numbers!
We proved that even though Celiac Disease (or gluten intolerance) may rob us of our strength at times, we still have the courage and vitality to fight!
United we stood and together we succeeded!
But, I’m getting ahead of myself.
“the Disney Channel to stop airing the episode ‘Quitting Cold Koala’ on the ‘Jessie’ show, and to stop using gluten-intolerance as an excuse to bully children with any disease, disorder or disability.”
Within minutes this appeared.
This was then followed by:
From there things began to really take off.
The GF community took to Twitter, Facebook, and even the phone lines making their voices heard. We were relentless in our cause and because of this we achieved victory!
Not only did Disney pull the episode of “Jessie” off the air, they issued an apology to the Gluten Free community.
There were a number of comments made both for, and against, the decision that Disney made. Gluten Dude did an excellent job of summarizing the good, the bad, and the ugly of these comments.
He even incorporated something that I had said. (Thanks again, Dude!)
With that, I will conclude this classic tale of a community united trying to transform the ways of an illustrious mouse.
