Disney+ has been called out for its awkward attempt to cover up Daryl Hannah's semi-naked backside from the 1984 film Splash.
Both the original and censored clips from Splash were shared on Twitter. In the original, when Hannah runs away, her hair sits just above her butt. However, in the Disney+ version, her hair is lengthened via jarring CGI to help cover her posterior.
It's worth noting that the original clip didn't show much nudity, so many are questioning whether the censorship on Disney+ was warranted.
Directed by Ron Howard, Splash released with a PG rating due to some profanity and brief nudity. The film stars Tom Hanks as a young man named Allen Bauer, who begins a romantic relationship with a mermaid named Madison (Hannah).
The 10th highest-grossing film of 1984, Splash garnered several awards, including a Saturn Award for Best Actress and National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Screenplay. A made-for-TV-sequel to Splash called Splash Too was released in 1988 with Greg Antonacci serving as director.
This isn't the first instance of Disney+ censoring and/or altering content. Most notably, the service excludes the Michael Jackson-starring "Stark Raving Dad" episode of The Simpsons, and the infamous Han Solo/Greedo scene from Star Wars: A New Hope features Greedo uttering an extra line moments before his death.
