6 Roald Dahl Quotes to Ignore

Picture of Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl wrote children’s books that inspire kids around the world, but he also had several controversial views that aren’t acceptable by today’s norms. This leaves modern parents in a difficult position. So if you want your children to idolize the beloved author, here are six quotes that you should avoid:

    1. The one where he claimed bad thoughts are what make you physically unattractive.
    2. The one where he said he’d rather be dead than fat.
    3. The one where he blamed Holocaust victims for getting murdered.
    4. The one where he praised Hitler. While you’re at it, don’t look into what he said about Mussolini.
    5. The one where he literally said he was antisemitic.
    6. Everything else he said about people that are Jewish.

If you made it to the end of the list, you are bad at ignoring things.
