If the woke corporations hate you, something’s gotta be right.
Disney, the children’s entertainment empire, announced that it will cease its donations to political parties in Florida over the backlashed faced from the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ narrative.
The state is under the public’s microscope as it nears the completion of a bill that will prohibit teachers from introducing children to mature sex-centered tenets loosely defined by the LGBTQ community.
According to NBC, Disney Chief Bob Chapek was apologetic after taking heat for being closely linked to the state, via Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, and failing to reprimand Florida Governor Ron DeSantis — an aberration to the woke political left.
“You needed me to be a stronger ally in the fight for equal rights and I let you down,” Chapek publicly stated on Friday. “I am sorry.”
DeSantis previously took a dig at Chapek for surrendering to the cancelation mobs. The governor delivered a speech on Thursday regarding Disney’s loyalty to China and woke theater by taking a stand against a wrongly defined piece of legislation.
Critics of DeSantis have reprimanded the governor and antagonized him for driving away Disney, considered a “top three” donor to Florida’s Republican candidates, according to the AP.
They have failed to address DeSantis’ firm belief that prohibiting gender ideologies between kindergarten to third grade is the correct move to make, contrary to the fiscal pressures of Disney.
Though the company takes a position against DeSantis’ newly nicknamed ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, their film division has avoided showcasing content prohibited in China, whose firm opposition to LGBTQ in the media and human rights violations have generated no response from Disney.
DeSantis reiterates that the legislative bill will give parents the autonomy to teach their children about sex education.

Disappointed in Disney. Was looking forward to going back to the parks now that the illogical Covid restrictions are on the way out. But not anymore. No way am I giving these woke idiots one cent of my hard-earned money. They’ve gone completely off the rails and forgotten who their core audience is. The days of Disney being the “Happiest Place on Earth” are over.
Also, does anyone have an example of a business or corporation actually losing paying customers by NOT bowing to the woke mob? Feels, to me, like every time someone stands up to them, they actually gain more customers.
And DeSantis should go on the offensive about how Disney is not sticking up for the gay community in China, they only care when someone prevents attacks on children in the US. He should also challenge the CEO to actually read the bill.
Personally, I don’t think it should be taught at all in schools. Period. That is not the role of schools in this country.
Chapek is an imbecile. The vast majority of his WDW guests agree with DeSantis.
Disney is run by wild frauds and hypocrites. Glad we got our park visits in over a decade ago when my kids were small and the company was tolerable. Recently sent their corp mailbox and their “social Justice” group and email telling them that I will avoid doing business with Disney at all costs, given that that hate half the country. This gaslighting over the FL bill was the final straw. They need to hear from millions just how grotesque they are.
Agree and hopefully more than half Americans do also one thing these CEO’s do look at is their bottom line.One example Dick’s sports bottom line was large sales decline when stopping gun sales.
The Gaystapo got to him.
