Kids’ YouTube channel in racism row after cartoon angel turns black when she ‘loses her beauty’

A KIDS’ YouTube channel has been accused of racism after a cartoon angel who “loses her beauty” becomes black.

Hundreds of people have flooded the comments section underneath MyPinguTV’s “Dina And The Prince Story” with furious complaints.

In the story, a Prince falls in love with a beautiful character called Dina who isn’t allowed to speak to him because she’s an angel.

Seeing that’s he’s sad, she then speaks to him but that means she has to give up her beauty.

The Prince says he still loves her and though the moral of the tale is clearly that we should love people despite their appearances, the cartoon has provoked outrage . . .
