Oh, we're sorry, did you want to get through your day without thinking about the most tragic death in cinema history? Nope, not in the cards for you today.

In case you forgot how you felt the first time you watched The Lion King, this precious little girl is here to remind you that your heart is just as fragile as it was the day you saw Mufasa die for the first time. This father wanted to capture an important moment in his child's life (the end of innocence?), so he filmed his little girl watching the gut-wrenching and traumatizing scene of little Simba trying to wake up his father as he lies dead on the ground.

(Quick pause while we regain our composure.)

Anyway, this scene is awful for full-grown adults, so you can imagine how an unsuspecting child handles the utterly depressing moment. Somebody please shield this darling girl from the horrors of a Disney movie! 

But it's too late. She's watched Scar murder his own brother and now everything is sad and we hate Disney for doing this to us time and time again. Someone really needs to end the Mouse's reign of terror.

But if there is anything positive to glean from this video, it's that it serves as a reminder that there really isn't much difference between a small child and an adult. Because despite all our differences, we've all cried while watching The Lion King. Isn't that a nice thought?

Dear father: do not film her watching the end of Toy Story 3. We won't be able to handle that.
