Walt Disney was the patriarch, Mr. Morality. His "kids" didn't stir scandal or create chaos. What a difference a generation makes! Yes, morality died with Walt...
In the era of Walt there was such a thing as a morality clause, today's Disney buried morality along with him.

Walt Disney must be rolling over in his grave at the thought of his name being associated with three of Disney's former stars. Brittany kissed a girl and liked it. Christina got down and dirty. Miley left her morality in Montana. All of these celebrity's were 'Disney girls". Two were on the Mickey Mouse Club. Is this the plight of what will become of today's Disney stars?
When I think of Disney, I think of wholesome, family values, and something my grandchild can watch. Yes, he's watched the Mickey Mouse Club and Hannah Montana, but what happened to the stars after Disney?
I think in a perfect scenario these girls needed a mentor. They needed Walt Disney and Annette Funicello. Disney was Mr. Morality and Annette was Miss Wholesome. Walt was a watch dog because he cared about family values. Annette didn't want to embarrass the Disney name or herself.
It's sad in today's Disney when you're gone, you're gone. There's no one to catch you when you stumble. There's no one to tell you no. Of course, your parent's aren't because all they see are dollar signs. Your friends won't because they are hanger's on. What you need is a good dose of reality. What you need is Walt Disney to shake some sense into you. Yes, you are an adult, but act like one!
I don't want to see your crotch on television!
Note: Miley Cyrus' escapades were fueled by the media as well as social media. She probably got what she wanted to achieve. She got fifteen minutes of shame in my opinion. I'm guilty as well by writing about what she did, but as a parent and grandparent I have to pray for her, wish she was mine so I could whip her behind.
