An adult Disney fan has been told to ‘grow up’ by cruel trolls after becoming emotional at meeting Goofy.
Sarah, who goes by TikTok username @everydayisdisney, shared a clip of herself meeting the popular character in Orlando, Florida, and it’s garnered 1.8million views.
She captioned the post: “I can’t remember the last time I cried this hard… It might sound silly but my papa’s favourite character was Goofy and when I hug Goofy it’s like hugging my papa again.
“Thank you so much @disneyparks for making real magic for me today.”
In the clip, the text on the video reads: “When you see Goofy coming around the corner after you’ve waited 3 years to hug him again.”
Since going viral, many people have taken to the comments and trolled the woman over her reaction.
One said: “Disney adults are something else.”
A second commented: “Aaaand this is why Disney is absolutely unbearable to visit.”
“Okay, yeah I’m fine with Disney adults but some of y’all grown people need to remember there’s another adult in the costume lol,” another added.
A fourth agreed, saying: “Disney adults, I swear.”

However, the majority of TikTokers have defended Sarah over her reaction, explaining that she’s going through a ‘process of grief’.
Supporting the woman, one wrote: “I don’t care what anyone says, Disney adults are the purest people.”
Another added: “Please y’all take the time to read the caption. The process of grief looks different for everyone.”
“People do realise ‘growing up’ doesn’t mean you need to be miserable and not do things that make your heart happy right?” a third fumed. “Leave her alone.”
In a chat with the New York Post, Sarah said that she’s not surprised by the backlash and she has ‘thick skin’.
She explained: “I dug into some of these video duets/stitches and comments and a lot of the people behind the account are in middle school/high school/college.
“These are really formative years for learning how to treat others and I’m concerned for how brazen people have become online when criticising strangers.”
