An unidentified couple has become the subject of furious debate after wearing T-shirts with a sexual message to Disney theme park.
Both T-shirts use the letter ‘D’ written in Disney’s signature calligraphy font – but play on an ambiguity where ‘D’ can stand for both Disney and a piece of male anatomy.
“I gave her the D,” reads the man’s shirt, with an icon of Cinderella’s castle after the D.
‘I wanted the D’, reads on the woman’s shirt, with the same icon of Cinderella’s castle.
The D: An unidentified couple has become the subject of furious debate after wearing T-shirts with a sexual message to Disney theme park
Unimpressed: Sam Carter, a former Disney creative designer, shared the photo on Twitter this weekend showing the offending guests’ faces obscured by clown emojis
It’s not clear from the photo where it was taken, although it appears to be somewhere in or near Disney World in Florida or Disneyland in California.
Members of the crowd that circle the couple also wear Disney-themed clothing, though it’s all more kid-friendly, including shirts featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse and another with the Captain America logo.
But while the two theme parks are family-friendly places that cater to kids, the unidentified couple doesn’t seem to worry about making anyone uncomfortable.
They are pictured walking hand in hand in matching jeans with sweaters tied around their waists, the vulgar message on their shirts easily readable.

Angry: The T-shirts sparked a furious debate on social media, with some expressing outrage at the ‘tacky’ designs, while others insisting they were harmless
“D stands for Don’t,” he wrote.
Some commentators have had similar disgusting reactions, with one calling the pair “a little tacky.”
“It’s just not appropriate attire when you’re around children. Not appropriate, should not be worn. Period,’ said another. “Children ask questions. The older children can read.’
“Completely inappropriate and the couple should be punished, period,” wrote another Twitter user.
Other commentators called it “disturbed,” “cringe” and “in bad taste.”
‘At Disneyland???????? not cute, honey,” wrote another.
“Keep the trash out of the park. The park is for CHILDREN,” another argued, while another Twitter user snapped: “People try too hard to be tense.”

Still, almost everyone is upset about the shirts’ R-rated joke — in fact, many Twitter users find it quite funny.
“It’s literally just the letter D. Let people have fun. Damn,” argued one.
‘What a great shirt,’ wrote another, while a third said, ‘Ah, have a sense of humour. If your kids ‘get it’, they’re already joking about it with their friends.’
“To be honest, this is smart. Nothing to worry about,” wrote another.
Others called it “cute,” “goals,” “hilarious,” “awesome,” and “cute.”
‘I don’t mind these kinds of shirts. I wish people were a little more creative. Tired of seeing the same old Etsy shirt designs over and over,” said another.
Fun: Still, almost everyone is mad about the shirts’ R-rated joke — in fact, many Twitter users find it quite funny.
In fact, countless websites sell similar T-shirts with the same words and different designs, and Etsy alone has dozens of options.
Photos of other couples wearing such shirts have been shared on social media, including at least one couple with children in tow.
It appears that no one at Disney theme parks objected to these particular shirts, although the parks reserved the right to turn away guests wearing clothing deemed inappropriate.
“We reserve the right to ban or remove any person wearing clothing that we deem inappropriate or clothing that could detract from the experience of other guests,” reads the Disney World website.
Similar T-shirts can be found on several websites, and photos of other couples wearing such shirts have been shared on social media – including at least one couple with children in tow.
