Jim Cummings mocked on Defamer. Is that a step up in fame?

Jim Cummings is causing a stir all over the internet today with even EW taking a jab at him. But proving that he has finally stepped into the celebrity big time, he was made fun of pretty badly over on celebrity site Defamer.

Walt Disney Proudly Presents ‘The Princess and the Frog and the Racist Firefly’
As if we weren’t soiling our pants enough already in anticipation of Disney’s Beverly Hills Chihuahua and its high-kicking chorus of furry Mexican slurs, now comes a short teaser from the upcoming The Princess and The Frog—a return to hand-drawn animation for the studio, and the first to feature an African-American princess in the lead. Set in New Orleans, the jazz-era musical is written and directed by the team who brought us classics like Aladdin and The Little Mermaid, features songs by Randy Newman, and—if this teaser is any indication—stars a toothless firefly that seems to have fluttered in accidentally from the set of Song of the South 2: Cajun Vacation. Unfortunately, the feature won’t be in theaters until Christmas 2009. Haw-haw! Id looks like dis could take some TAHM! –Source

While the Song of the South 2 bit is relatively funny, as a JC fan, I am starting to get worried. If people complain enough, Disney will probably just cut him out of the movie entirely or at the least, make him redo his part. I still don’t think its worth all this drama.

Well, I guess the next step is for TMZ to pick up this story and run a photo of JC walking down the street or picking his nose or something. . .

  • Oh, really now! Haven’t they got anything better to do than complain about voices these days? Maybe Jim should be like Sterling Holloway and use the same voice all the time and people will get kicked off at having to hear it all the time. Voice actors like Jim have so much to give in the world of voice acting, and it’s…how can i put this politely? These over obsessed racism nanny culture people are ruining things. I sure hope his part won’t get cut or re-done as i haven’t heard him use that style voice before. Anyone who don’t like it can go to the down below world >:(

    I have to agree. As a young woman of african-american descent, I have been waiting for a black disney princess for ages and I would hate to see such a promising movie be ruined all because some people refuse to let go of their racial hang-ups. Honestly, it’s a kids movie! Purely entertainment purposes. Kids today (for the most part) could care less about skin color, race and the like – hatred is something that is taught. And if it is not taught in the home, then there is a pretty good chance that they’re not going to see a Cajun stereotype, but simply an entertaining and probably very funny character that they know is just a cartoon (i.e. it’s NOT real!)
