NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - No one can agree on the perfect gumbo recipe. The debate sparked many "my momma's is better than your momma's" conversations.
However, folks on the internet can agree on one thing: Disney don't know gumbo.
After an outcry online, particularly on social media, the entertainment company took down Princess Tiana's controversial healthy gumbo recipe video.
In what many Louisianans believe was a poor, misguided effort, Disney tried to commemorate the movie "The Princess and the Frog" with a gumbo recipe. The 2009 animated movie was based in New Orleans.
The recipe excluded roux - truly a bold adventure for the creole princess. But the addition of kale and quinoa to the mix sent the region into a "kiss my grits" frenzy.
It appears Disney removed all traces of this abomination Tuesday night from its social accounts. But you can't silence an angry Cajun. Especially after a Saints loss.
Other "The Princess and the Frog" related social posts incurred the public's wrath.
Comments under this Facebook post included:
"Does the app come with an apology for the crime against nature you committed in that "gumbo" video"
"LOL, as a stockholder and DVC member, I sure hope any future Disney rides or restaurants based on this character include more research than that horrible and least-authentic recipe y'all posted as a "bayou favorite"... I don't know what bayou you visited, but it sure wasn't anywhere near Louisiana! Yuck. Just YUCK."
The recipe turned some Louisianans against each other:
"In all honesty, you can't even get a decent bowl of gumbo in New Orleans. It's a shame that tourists think a lot of that gunk they serve in New Orleans restaurants is gumbo. If you want authentic gumbo, come on over to Bayou Lafourche and find a real cook."
It also inspired some creative filmmaking:
Regardless of what you think of the Disney debacle, my momma's gumbo is better than your momma's.
