He went on to further accuse Disney of hypocrisy, arguing that the company only takes a stance when politically convenient and has remained silent on the “brutal practices” of the Chinese government to protect its business interests in that country.
The Walt Disney Company has unwittingly planted itself smack-dab in the middle of a culture war, thanks to CEO Bob Chapek’s bumbling response to the Florida Parental Rights in Education bill, dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by critics.
Here is transcript of DeSantis’s comments followed by the video clip:
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.

LGBTQ+ staff at Disney continue to revolt and have started a campaign of walkouts, while Florida governor Ron DeSantis, who has taken tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Disney, has begun slamming the company from the other side.
