Woody Gets It! Video Shows Little Black Girl Getting A Hug From Toy Story Character At Disney World

Disturbing headlines have multiplied following the recent racial discrimination claims against mascots and costumed characters at theme parks, including Sesame Place, for snubbing Black children.

Social media can be the bearer of bad news, but in a recent case, a positive video is spreading like wildfire. It shows Woody, a character from the Toy Story franchise going out of the way to engage Black children cheering along a parade route at Disney World.

A proud father who took his kids to Disney World, shared an adorable video via TikTok celebrating his daughter Hayvn getting a hug from a costumed Jessie mascot — all thanks to Woody understanding the assignment.

Before the surprise hug, Woody and Jessie are seen waving and engaging with the crowd until Woody spots a group of cheering kids from the sideline.

Woody caught Jessie’s attention and directed them to the group, which so happened to be where Havyn and her little brother were waiting. Jessie cheerfully ran over and embraced little Havyn while her father caught it on camera.
