Parents Say Disney Character with Cleft Lip Could Lead to Bullying 30490

A Michigan parents group has spoken out against Disney's "The Lone Ranger" because a character in the movie, Butch Cavendish, appears to have a cleft lip. In promotions for the movie, Cavendish is described as "a ruthless outlaw whose terribly scarred face is a perfect reflection of the bottomless pit that passes for his soul." Moms from the Michigan Cleft Network are concerned that this could create problems for children with cleft lip or cleft palate.
