Toddler Told She Couldn't Dress Up as Queen Elsa

Aboriginal mom Rachel Muir took her daughter to a Disney-themed event at a Melbourne mall. Her 3-year-old, Samara, decided to dress up like Queen Elsa from "Frozen." As they were standing in line to go into the snow pit, the woman in front turned around and went on a racist rant. Muir said “The lady in front of us turned around to Samara and said ‘I don’t know why you’re dressed up for because Queen Elsa isn’t black,’” Muir recounted, reported The Courier. “I asked the woman what she meant by the comment and then one of the woman’s young daughters screwed up her face, she pointed at Samara and said ‘you’re black and black is ugly.’” Muir added “I looked around the line and there were little girls of all different races lining up dressed as their favorite Disney characters. We were in Melbourne, one of the most multicultural places in the world. I couldn’t believe it.”

Muir says her daughter burst into tears even though they still participated in the event. Samara also refused to attend her dance classes after the incident. Muir said “When I asked why she didn’t want to go, she pointed at the skin on her arm and asked why she was black. I told her ‘because God gave you that skin color, because you’re a proud blackfella like mum.’” Muir posted the incident on Facebook, and it went viral. Since then, Disney On Ice has invited Muir and her daughter to an upcoming performance, and not only will Samara get to watch, but she will also be able to perform.
