Some Disney workers are planning a walkout today as Disney continues to walk a fine line of keeping both woke protesters and parents happy.
The Disney employees are calling for the company to increase support for the LGBTQ community.
This after Disney refused to denounce Florida’s parenting bill, which bans schools from discussing sexual orientation or gender identity at the kindergarten level.
Disney’s CEO later apologized for not being a stronger ally in the fight for equal rights, but some think he needs to do more.
Florida governor Ron DeSantis recently spoke to constituents and called out Disney, a campaign donor, for attempting to interfere with how he believes parents want to raise their children.
Here’s a portion of the transcript:
“And I also think that you have companies, like a Disney, that are going to say and criticize parents’ rights. They’re going to criticize the fact that we don’t want transgenderism in kindergarten and first grade classrooms – if that’s the hill that they’re going to die on, then how do they possibly explain lining their pockets with their relationship from the Communist Party of China? Because that’s what they do and they make a fortune, and they don’t say a word about the really brutal practices that you see over there at the hands of the CCP. And so, in Florida, our policy’s going to be based on the best interests of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations.”
