Twitter is going crazy and it seems the reactions to Disney redesigning Splash Mountain run the gamut between Black Lives Matter to “Why did you do this”! Every post seems to lead to another post.
What’s amazing is it’s just the changing of a ride. I have a feeling that Disney World might have changed one or two rides in the past. Didn’t we just do it for Norway? If the issue is the nostalgia, has anybody here actually seen Song of the South?

4) I don’t think the name “Racist Log Ride” would really stick.

6) OMG I would love this. The Doof Drop!
Disney since we’re updating Splash Mountain can we also update Tower of Terror to be “Doof Drop” thanks pic.twitter.com/YGXJgayDAa

8) It MIGHT be something else.
To all the Disney-obsessed adults getting angry about Splash Mountain changing it's name, might I suggest not being an adult obsessed with Disney World.

Have you seen any good memes yourself? Do you think this will be the buzz of the decade or will people calm down and move forward? Maybe this will be like the Frozen ride where people didn’t cry about losing Norway.
