Woke Disney CEO Bob Iger Accuses Gov. DeSantis of Being ‘Anti-Florida’

Last year, upon returning to Disney, CEO Bob Iger announced that he wanted to “quiet things down” in the company and end the ongoing political war with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

However, on Monday, Iger did the complete opposite! He accused the governor of being “not only anti-business, but anti-Florida.”

Iger re-ignited the flame during the Walt Disney Co.’s annual shareholders meeting, while standing in front of a backdrop of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Conveniently enough, he downplayed the company’s role in the fight, which all started when former CEO Bob Chapek blasted Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law.

The Parental Right in Education law, also known by the lying mainstream media as “Don’t Say Gay,” is the legislation that prohibits schools from teaching sexuality and transgenderism to young children in Kindergarten through third grade.

Wow, imagine being upset that schools can’t teach your young, impressionable child about sex and sex changes.

Breitbart reports:

After Disney protested the law and vowed to work to repeal it, Florida responded by revoking the company’s self-governing status in Orlando — a valuable corporate privilege Disney enjoyed for five decades.

When asked about the feud on Monday, Iger tried to lay the blame on DeSantis, claiming the governor retaliated against Disney while ignoring the fact that Disney threw the first punch.

“A company has a right to freedom of speech just like an individual does,” Iger said.

He did acknowledge that Chapek could have handled things better, but still declared that DeSantis “retaliates against us — in effect to punish a company for exercising its constitutional right.”

Iger added, “And that seems really wrong to me.”

The CEO continued on to praise Disney’s contributions to Florida’s economy. He said,  “Our point is, that any action that thwarts those efforts simply to retaliate against a position the company took sounds not only anti-business, but anti-Florida.”

He also indicated that the company will continue to be a woke think tank. “Diversity is a real priority for us” Iger said, adding that Disney will continue to create content that promotes “greater understanding, greater acceptance.”
