Rachel Zegler Reminds Us She's Been a Princess For Years Amid 'Snow White' Backlash

Rachel Zegler is pulling out photographic evidence that she’s been a Disney Princess for years now amid renewed backlash surrounding her live-action Snow White movie with Disney.

If you missed it, some Disney fans were upset by the diverse casting choices after photos emerged from set that displayed what appeared to be the characters who have previously been referred to as “Dwarfs.”

The pictures reignited a racist backlash against Rachel being cast as the classic Princess. She addressed all of that and thanked her fans for their support with a new post on social media.

“Extremely appreciative of the love i feel from those defending me online,” Rachel wrote before making a request that her supporters “please don’t tag me in the nonsensical discourse about my casting.”

She continued, explaining, “I really, truly do not want to see it.”

Rachel paired her message with four photos of herself dressed up as various princesses as a child, leading with one of her as the coolest Snow White.

“So i leave you w these photos! i hope every child knows they can be a princess no matter what,” she wrote.

The movie, which also stars Gal Gadot, received a release date last year, though it will likely be delayed now due to the SAG-AFTRA strike.
