Disney has been on quite the roll, most recently firing Gina Carano for being a conservative while allowing liberal employees to spread real anti-Semitism and hate. Today, we bring you a positive development: Disney’s double standards could soon affect its bottom line.
According to The Daily Wire, pollster Neil Newhouse of Public Opinion Strategies conducted a poll that found most of the surveyed Americans are less likely to support Disney because of its recent social and political activism. The survey included Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.
Notably, the participants were shown the social media post that gave Disney the excuse it was looking for to fire Gina Carano, and they overwhelmingly deemed the firing unjustified, at a 72%-28% rate.
More specifically, 39% said Carano’s post “may have been poorly worded, but not worth firing,” and 34% said they found nothing wrong with the quote.
The survey then found that 64% of Americans oppose Disney’s decision to close down popular rides at its theme parks after activists said the rides have racist origins and messages. Of the Americans of color polled, 60% said that decision, too, was unnecessary.
Disney is one of the furthest Left companies in the everyday picture, adopting a view on political correctness shared with the despicable Joy Reid. Now, its consumers are finally showing the company it has gone too far, way too far.
“By a 65%-35% margin, Americans believe that companies like Disney have taken political correctness too far, including a majority of every age group tested, 90% of Republicans, 60% of Independents and 47% of Democrats,” the survey says.
Even 47% of Democrats. Think about it.
Get this: Only 25% said that Hollywood is not biased against conservatives.
ESPN and LeBron James really won’t like this next one.
A massive 84% oppose Disney’s decision to film a movie in China as “the Communist country allegedly engages in genocide of one of China’s minority groups, the Uyghur people.”
Ouch, bad news for Adam Silver.
Disney has also threatened to cease doing business in Georgia now that the state has passed legislation banning abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected. Though this was less lopsided, 54% were against this decision.
The big takeaway here is that Disney has been taking orders from a select group of radical, miserable loons online and in the media. As this poll and many others prove, there aren’t that many of them. They are just the loudest voices who have bullied other Americans with different opinions into silence. Of course, Disney has gone too far, and now its business might decline as a result.
