Disney condemns 'offensive' video
Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Staff involved in the 'offensive' video have been dealt with
Disney has condemned staff at its Paris theme park who took part in a joke video where they dressed as cartoon characters simulating sex.

The short film, which features Mickey and Minnie Mouse, ended up on the website YouTube.

A Disneyland Resort Paris spokesman said: "The behaviour shown on the video is unacceptable and inexcusable."

The company said appropriate action had been taken but refused to state exactly how the staff had been dealt with.

A union official told the news agency AFP that it was the US parent company of Disneyland Paris that demanded the resort take action.
