et another visitor has been banished from the happiest place in Pudong after messing with one of the characters.
Cell phone video footage shows how ShellieMay, the Disney bear, had only stepped out into a public area for about 10 seconds before her ear was grabbed and yanked from behind by a man in a black jacket. Afterward, the character appears hurt, covers her face, and quickly returns back to safety.
While the yank may not have looked like much, the heavy weight of Disney characters’ headwear makes any sort of contact to the head dangerous… as ShellieMay discovered last July when she got bopped in the back of the head by another visitor at Shanghai Disneyland.
A few months later, Mickey Mouse himself was similarly attacked in Shanghai. The penalty for such assaults is a six-month ban which netizens have argued is too lenient a punishment. This latest incident has also been reported to police.
