Disney Princesses As Acid Attack Survivors: Activist Alexsandro Palombo Says It's A 'Crime Against Humanity'

Activists and artists appropriating Disney princesses for critical causes that affect women, have made the cartoon characters empowering in a way they never were in film.

The latest is artist and activist Alexsandro Palombo who has launched a new series featuring much characters such as Snow White and Belle as women who have survived an acid attack.

Speaking to IB Times UK, he said: " I always used art as a powerful means of awareness. My art is against indifference, I want to shake consciences.

"If you're not outraged and don't react, if you stay silent in front of this atrocity, then you're just like those perpetrators of these inhumane acts.

"Disfiguring a woman with acid means to erase her identity and inflict a never ending pain. It's a crime of immense inhumanity that has nothing to do with modern civilisation."

Earlier last summer, Palombo gave The Simpsons and Family Guy characters the domestic violence treatment to highlight the number of women that live in dangerous situations and put up with it behind closed doors.
