“It’s no longer 1937, she’s not going to be saved by the prince and she’s not dreaming about true love,” said Rachel.

The lead actress who who has only watched the movie ‘once’ for filming purposes essentially called the prince “a stalker” adding that the new movie was not all about love and the prince's scenes, played by Andrew Bernard, might be cut too.

While netizens are totally in support of a woman pursuing a career and life alongside love, the way the lead actress berated the original story has not left the fans happy. All the lovers of the original story, suggest the movie was much more than only love, it stood for kindness, leadership, courage and hope.

A user took to Twitter to share their views for the same "“I have no idea who tf Rachel Zegler is but now I don’t like her bc of the way she talks about Snow White lmfao. It’s a classic. Not every single movie today needs to be about women in power. We can have movies about princesses being saved by a prince.”

Many are thinking of boycotting the movie""Snow White was about being kind, soft, and gentle. Now she’s something different – is she running for president or something in this new movie? I don't want to see it."
