The post, from a Disney Internet account, said it was Princess Tiana's recipe for a healthy gumbo.
Princess Tiana, the main character in Disney's Princess and the Frog, which was set in New Orleans and featured references to beignets and gumbo, along with music by Dr. John, sets up her own New Orleans restaurant at the end of the film.
The 'healthy gumbo' recipe seemed harmless enough, but in Louisiana, you don't mess with our gumbo, and once people piled on, there was no stopping it.
There may be several ways to make it, and many can disagree, but, what just about everyone Tuesday agreed on was that kale, quinoa and a lack of a roux can combine, perhaps for a very fine dish, but not a gumbo.
Posts of the video were on several Facebook pages of both locals and displaced or relocated Louisianians, who said they didn't recognize the creation.
Most of the major news outlets in New Orleans ran stories on their web sites.
At some point, Disney apparently cried 'Uncle' and the video was no longer available.
