Disney issues a statement on the performance of the “Indianettes” coaching staff, did not reflect the audition tape
Disney has released a statement regarding Controversial performance by the Port Neches Grove High School marching band at the Magic Kingdom earlier this week. The high school mascot is the “Indians” and the marching band rehearsals were not allowed to wear warheads, but they still performed parodies of the Native American dance and song, including the hymn “Scalp.”
Disney spokeswoman Jack Wheeler stated, “We regret that the performance occurred because it did not reflect the audition tape that was submitted. We have immediately put in place measures to ensure the performance does reflect the auditions.”
Apparently the offensive drill team portion of the performance wasn’t on the marching squad’s audition tape, so Disney didn’t have a chance to block it.
You can watch a portion of the drilling team’s performance below in the tweet included by Not Your Mascots co-founder, Tara Hoska.
