Yesterday we reported on news that Disney World in Florida has edited out an apparently “obscene” gesture made by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. It only took Disney 17 years to notice that Tyler maybe, kinda, sorta is making the “shocker” gesture on the band’s Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, which opened in 1999.
In short: Tyler gestures to fans in a pre-recorded video as they wait to get on the ride at the Orlando theme park, and WDW News Todaypicked up word that the alleged shocker move had been edited out for something far more family-friendly.
It took Disney 17 years to censor the gesture, but it took Tyler less than 24 to ask “WTF”?
On Facebook, Tyler writes, wearing a NSFW hat that says “Fuck!!” on it: “WELL NOW I AM IN ‘SHOCK’…YOU KNOW I WOULD OWN UP TO THIS DOOZIE…WAY TO GIVE ME THE FINGER NOW Walt Disney World…17 YEARS LATER…SEE YOU NEXT WEEK…HERE’S TO THE GREATEST RIDE AT DISNEY”
We’re not sure what the “see you next week” stuff is all about, but Tyler does play Tampa on August 29, so maybe he’s planning a quick trip to to Disney. He plays the Wang Theatre in Boston on September 4.
