                  Song of the South

                  While not technically “banned,” Song of the South has been constantly mired in controversy for its depiction of African Americans. It’s also been criticized for its ambiguous nature regarding race relations in the south, making them seem much more harmonious than reality. In 2010, Disney’s CEO Robert Iger called the movie “antiquated” and “rather offensive.” It’s been locked away in the Disney vault for some time. It is unlikely to ever be re-released again.
