Disney CEO Wants To Pull Out Of Political Controversy

(Republicaninformer.com)- At a Monday employee town hall meeting, Disney’s former and current CEO Bob Iger reportedly remarked that he doesn’t like to see the corporation involved in scandals and will work to “calm things down” on the political front.

Iger’s remarks follow those of Bob Chapek, who earlier this year engaged in a political spat with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) over the state’s anti-grooming statute, pledging to push for the bill’s repeal. Additionally, Chapek promised to enlist Disney in radical LGBTQ advocacy, including the inclusion of transgenderism in children’s media.

As a result of parents objecting to Disney’s attempts to indoctrinate their children with sexual ideology, the firm faced a significant cultural reaction. Disney World’s self-governing status in Orlando, which it had had for fifty years, was revoked by Gov. DeSantis in retaliation.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Iger thinks there’s a misconception here about what politics is. “Some of the topics that have been linked to Disney and have shown to be contentious have been labeled political, but I don’t think they are,” he claimed.

“Do I like the company being in the news for all the wrong reasons? Of course not,” he replied, adding that he would make an effort to calm things down “to the extent that I can.”

Iger appeared to be attempting to be amicable with Florida on the matter of the state.

Regarding Florida’s move to withdraw Disney World’s Reedy Creek Improvement District, Iger reportedly commented, “I had no idea what its ramifications are in terms of the business itself.”

Iger stated that he needed to find out more information.

“For a very long time, Florida has been very important to us, and we have been very important to Florida,” Iger boasted.

His statement contrasts sharply with Iger’s vocal criticism of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education statute earlier this year.

Following a terrible quarterly financial report and a collapse in the company’s value, The Walt Disney Co. sacked CEO Bob Chapek last week. But even before he took office, Chapek’s tenure was troubled since he oversaw the almost total wokification of a once-loved family company.

Chapek vigorously fought for a variety of far-left social agendas, including transgenderism and the sexification of children’s media.
