Disturbing Posters Show Disney Princesses Being Abused By Their Fathers

Middle Eastern artist ‘Saint Hoax’ has created a series of disturbing posters that shows Disney princesses being abused by their own fathers.

Titled ‘Princest Diaries’, the posters feature Jasmine and Ariel being forcefully kissed by their respective fathers.

According to the artist, she wrote that the posters were targeted at minors “who have been subject to sexual abuse by a family member”.

“46% of minors who are raped are victims of family members,” the ads read. “It’s never too late to report your attack.”

According to Huffington Post, Saint Hoax created the posters after learning that one of her close friends was raped by her father at age seven.

“That story shocked me to my core,” she said. “As an artist/activist, I decided to shed light on that topic again in a new form. I used Disney princess because it’s a visual language that my targeted audience would be attracted to.”
