Comedian Brad Williams Weighs In After Peter Dinklage And Disney Exchange Words Over Snow White

After years spent in development, Disney’s live-action Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs remake is finally making steady progress forward, with West Side Story’s Rachel Zegler being cast as the title princess and production expected to begin soon. However, earlier this week, Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage called out Disney about the upcoming project, which resulted in the studio responding to his concerns soon after. Now comedian Brad Williams, who, like Dinklage, has achondroplasia (a type of dwarfism), has weighed in on the matter.

For those who missed out on Peter Dinklage’s comments, the actor said that despite Disney being “progressive” with its casting of Snow White, the studio is still choosing to adapt a classic fairytale that he sees as “fucking backwards” with its depictions of dwarfs. Disney then revealed that this remake is “taking a different approach with these seven characters,” and that there’s been consultation with “members of the dwarfism community.” Here’s what Brad Williams had to say about Disney’s forthcoming take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs when TMZ caught up with him:

They’re touting the progressiveness, they’re touting that they have a Latinx Snow White. Which is great, but we’re still doing the dwarf thing, you know? So, he’s right. But at the same time, I’m torn because it’s like yes, it’s mildly offensive. But at the same time, I kind of need the work. So, I’m kind of hoping for acting gigs. You know, that’s why I’m a stand up comic. So I can get more work for myself and not have to worry about other people telling the story.
