PRINCETON, N.J. (CIRCA) — A song from Disney’s “Little Mermaid” got cut from a Princeton University a cappella group's lineup after it stirred up some controversy.
The all-male Princeton Tigertones will temporarily stop performing “Kiss the Girl” because of complaints that it is misogynist and violates consent, the The New York Times reports.
In the Tigertones performance, the members would randomly invite a woman and a man up on stage during the song. At the end of the song, the singers would sing, “Go on kiss the girl!” to the audience members.
In a letter, Tigertones president Wesley Brown said, “Performances of this song have made participants uncomfortable and offended audience members, an outcome which is antithetical to our group’s mission and one that we deeply regret.”
