18 Famed Pop Culture Couples That Are Actually Toxic AF
Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast
Disney stories are the height of healthy, loving relationships in pop culture, right? Wrong! Beauty and the Beast, in any iteration of the story, is a terrible example of love for kids. Not only does the Beast kidnap and imprison Belle, he makes her clean his house while spending time with his annoying, singing dinnerware. People look at the relationship as a smart girl reforming a beast with her love. In reality, the Beast is selfish and possessive of Belle all while she falls in love with him as the result of Stockholm Syndrome. Love bred in captivity probably doesn’t count as an epic love story.
