‘Tigger’ cast member suspended at WDW; under investigation for assaulting guest

Local news is reporting that Walt Disney World has suspended a ‘Tigger’ cast member while he is under investigation for assaulting a guest. Guest was a 14 year old kid. The family claims the whole event was caught on video tape. This report on WFTV makes it sound like the tape only shows a fraction of the event, so we don’t know if ‘Tigger’ was provoked, or if he was just off balance, or something else. The family, of course, has their own version of events.

Hopefully, if innocent the cast member will be cleared to return to work soon. Those walk-around characters are not paid nearly enough for the abuse and hot temperatures they have to endure. Btw, this is a different cast member than was involved, and found innocent, in the previous ‘Tigger’ trial. But assaulting a guest is not acceptable in any circumstance.

    This is so ridiculous!! Just another family using their kids to try to get rich. Give me a break. They were playing around. They are liars. All of them.

    totally agree with all of you, if you watch the tape you can actually see the kid is trying to provoke tigger with his left arm. Give me a break, this family makes me sick. Get over it
