Donald Trump has taken aim at Disney’s “Frozen” in his effort to quell the controversy over his use of what critics have called anti-Semitic imagery in a tweet bashing Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, came under fire this past weekend for a tweet featuring Hillary Clinton’s picture next to a Star of David with the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever.” Reports quickly emerged that the star image had previously surfaced on a white supremacist message board.
The Trump campaign blamed the ensuing controversy on slanted media coverage, calling the outrage “ridiculous” and denying that the star image was taken from a white supremacist message board. The Trump campaign maintained the six-cornered star was taken from an anti-Clinton twitter feed and meant to invoke a sheriff’s badge.
On Wednesday night, Trump sent a tweet pointing to a star image on the cover of a “Frozen” book tie-in. “Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the Star of David also? Dishonest media,” he wrote.
Disney reps declined to comment.
