Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

I turned it off after the first 5 minutes

I started watching this with my 3, 5, and 9 yr olds, but turned it off after the first few scenes. The behavior of the main characters is ridiculous. The duck sabotages her fellow models, with seemingly no negative consequences. Then the dress is stripped off another character and she’s photographed when she’s obviously distressed. Really disturbing in what looks like a movie for little kids.
