Universal Orlando has pulled some of Dr. Seuss' books from its gift shops and is contemplating further changes to the resort after it was announced that some books from the author's collection would no longer be offered due to racist and insensitive imagery.
On Tuesday, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the entity that preserves and protects the author’s legacy, announced it would stop publishing six of the author's well-known books, including “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo,” because they "portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong."

The books in question are featured at Universal's Island of Adventure theme park in an area known as Seuss Landing, according to Spectrum News. The children's area is known for having characters and attractions inspired by the world created by Dr. Seuss — born Theodor Seuss Geisel.
“We’ve removed the books from our shelves as they have asked and we’ll be evaluating our in-park experience too," a Universal spokesperson told FOX Business in a statement.
