(Newser) – Once upon a time an Aussie ale company ad turned Snow White into "Ho White," and made Disney officials as angry as wicked witches. The not-so-virginal disheveled beauty blows smoke rings in bed with her little naked buddies including Filthy, Smarmy and Randy in the controversial ad for Jamieson's Raspberry Ale. The tagline on the art that ran online and in liquor stores reads: "Anything but sweet." The ad's internet site disappeared after Ho White's creators had "some contact" with Disney, said a spokesman.
