The Princeton A capella group Tigertones has made a decision to cut its rendition of the Little Mermaid song "Kiss the Girl" after one student took offense to it and scrutinized the group in an op-ed, accusing them of performing "an offensive violating ritual" that allegedly promotes a non-consensual kiss.
Wollstein went on to express her discomfort in witnessing the group's performance, explaining that during the song's rendition, the Tigertones call one male and one female audience member up on stage to join them.
"Because of these concerns, we are removing "Kiss the Girl" from our active repertoire until we can arrive at a way to perform it that is comfortable and enjoyable for every member of our audience", the letter reads.
