After more intel gathered, I apologize for the mistake. Saint Hoax is actually a Syrian, living in Lebanon. Sorry for the mix-up, but I’m sure we’re all as excited and proud!
A series of shocking posters went viral online over the past couple of weeks. They featured Disney princesses like Ariel, Jasmine and Cinderella either beaten up Rihanna-style, or locked in a forceful embrace and kiss with their dads.
The point was to shift attention to the shocking numbers around sexual abuse, incest and rape around the world. 46% of minors who are raped are attacked by family members.
The posters are very powerful, in that they take the warped, often misogynistic portrayal of princesses in Disney movies, and makes it super-blunt instead of the subliminal messages that people usually attribute to these animated fairy tales.
I’ve confirmed that Saint Hoax is definitely Lebanese, but I won’t disclose any further information to respect the artist’s choice to remain anonymous. So, Saint Hoax, we are proud of you!
