Now, one verified Twitter account for the Disney|ABC Photo department has come out of a nearly two-year hiatus for a seemingly bizarre reason — to publicly slam a Disney fan site for a recent post.

Twitter user chris! at the rope drop shared a screenshot of the original post, in which the official ABC account commented on a fan site’s Tweet that did not feature a photo of Walt, but instead showcased two former Walt Disney Company CEOs —  Bob Iger and Michael Eisner. The comment reads:

And where is the photo of Walt Disney? This is a terrible oversight. Walt Disney was a genius and truly loved America and the world. Please update your post!!

Chris’s caption reads:

Regardless of what actually happened — or if the comment was ever supposed to be issued by the official Disney|ABC account —  the incident has undeniably amused the internet.

On December 5, in honor of Walt Disney’s birthday, the official Disney Parks Twitter account paid homage to the world’s greatest dreamer, sharing a new sneak peek of the Dreamer’s Point statue that will be installed at Walt Disney World Resort’s EPCOT Park:

To celebrate Walt Disney’s birthday, enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a brand-new statue, coming to Walt Disney World at Dreamers Point as part of the historic EPCOT transformation.
