Disney stopped a man from putting Spider-Man on his son’s grave, because they didn’t own the copyright

Death is hard, especially when it’s a parent that has to deal with the loss of their child. It’s even worse when their child dies without actually getting the chance to experience adulthood. One man had to suffer the loss of his son, who was only four years old.

In the UK, a man named Lloyd Jones was dealt a serious blow, when his son, Ollie, died, aged four. His son, an avid Spider-Man fan, died from leukodystrophy, a genetic disorder. To honor his son, Jones wanted to have Spider-Man looking down over his son.

While it was a very touching gesture, Lloyd Jones found his request denied by Disney. According to Jones’ claims, Disney said they didn’t want any of their characters tied to death. This led Jones to blast the company, saying they only care about children when they are alive and spending money on their products.
