Most Disney villains weren't born bad, they were twisted and gnarled into creeps by the cartoon universe and should really be categorized as misunderstood rather than evil.
And this explanation for their foul deeds would make a great opening statement for the defense if Disney villains like Captain Hook, Gaston and Ursula were brought up on charges.
Redditor ineed_one_more_lette recently started an interesting conversation via Reddit thread by posing the question:
Defense lawyers of Reddit: what would your defense be for various Disney villains?
The responses were surprisingly well thought out and extremely character appropriate, like this defense of Gaston's behavior towards The Beast from DailyBrainGain 1750:
He was a hunter by nature and there was a deadly beast in his village. He rightfully took a militia and attempted to seize the beast. Girl taken hostage, father taken hostage previous to her, the beats servants and maids were all essentially hostages. I mean I still feel for Gaston. If Belle didn't have that weird fetish this would make an awesome rescue story!
Gaston would've called instead of showing up late at night with torches and pitchforks but he didn't know the phone number of the beast.
Suddenly I feel like shaking Gaston's hand for being such a stand up guy!
