Disney's new streaming platform, Disney+, is warning viewers that some of its content may contain "outdated cultural depictions," and going so far to remove the films altogether in some instances.

The big picture: Disney+ has long teased access to the company's oldest and most obscure films. But with a lineup spanning decades, Disney's library isn't squeaky clean, with several films featuring racist tropes and offensive portrayals.

What they're saying: Dems demand Miller resign over leaked emails

After leaked emails indicated White House senior adviser Stephen Miller shared white nationalist content to Breitbart, leading Democrats are calling for him to resign, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasion-Cortez (N.Y.) — who's started a petition.

Why it matters: Per Axios' Rashaan Ayesh, Miller plays a role in shaping the Trump administration's immigration policy, and the leak to Hatewatch, a branch of nonprofit the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), shows over 80% of some 900-plus emails Miller sent to former Breitbart editor Katie McHugh related to race or immigration in some manner.
