The decision made this week from the estate of Dr. Seuss to cease publishing at least six books for “racist” content prompted Universal Studios in Orlando to “evaluate” attractions and park rides inspired by the beloved children’s author.
“Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprise’s catalog represents and supports all communities and families,” the statement read.

“Universal said it’s evaluating the in-park experiences in that area but visitors will still be able to enjoy Seuss Landing,” reports Spectrum News.
“Seuss Landing continues to be very popular with our guests and we value our relationship with Seuss Enterprises,” a Universal spokesperson said in a statement. “We’ve removed the books from our shelves as they have asked and we’ll be evaluating our in-park experience too. But our guests can plan on continuing to be able to enjoy their favorite experiences at Seuss Landing.”

“Fox News had Trump on but didn’t ask him about the insurrection he caused,” Acosta posted on Twitter.

“Rush was very sick at the time. I didn’t want to do the surprise thing and give him the medal. We didn’t really have the power of doing that because it was a very difficult thing for him to come to Washington from where he was. He was a brave guy,” the former President said.
“He was a very unique guy. He had tremendous incite. He got it, he was very street smart,” said Mr. Trump. “We developed a very good friendship. He was a very strong guy, we played golf together.”
DR SEUSS NEXT: Six Books Will No Longer Be Published for ‘Racist Images and Stereotypes’
At least six books written by Dr. Seuss -including ‘If I Ran the Zoo’ and others- will no longer be published due to “racist and insensitive imagery” going forward.
“These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises told The Associated Press
“Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ catalog represents and supports all communities and families,” it said.
“Dr. Seuss Enterprises listened and took feedback from our audiences including teachers, academics and specialists in the field as part of our review process. We then worked with a panel of experts, including educators, to review our catalog of titles,” adds the statement.
