UPDATE: Disney’s “Don’t Say Gay” Debacle 3/12/22 – Disney CEO Bob Chapek Apologizes AGAIN – CHAPEK MUST RESIGN

It’s been a long hard week for the LGBT community, Disney CEO Bob Chapek and the The Walt Disney Company itself as it faced major backlash from not only all over the country but the world after Disney’s abandonment of LGBT American’s. Not only was Disney was caught making donations to rabidly anti-LGBT Republican Florida Senators but also the company which has claimed a strong allyship to the LGBT community DID NOT SPEAK OUT and remained purposely silent as the states “Don’t Say Gay Bill” passed both chambers and sits on DeSantis’ desk, waiting to be signed and sends LGBT rights back in Florida over 40 years to the time of Anita Bryant and the “Save The Children Campaign”.

So what does Disney CEO Bob Chapek have to say? “He’s sorry:”

“It is clear that this is not just an issue about a bill in Florida, but instead yet another challenge to basic human rights. You needed me to be a stronger ally in the fight for equal rights and I let you down. I am sorry,” Chapek said in the letter, which was published on Disney’s website.

“We are hard at work creating a new framework for our political giving that will ensure our advocacy better reflects our values. I am committed to this work and to you all, and will continue to engage with the LGBTQ+ community so that I can become a better ally,” he added. “You will hear more about our progress in the coming weeks.”

Quite simply: Apology not accepted and Bob Chapek MUST RESIGN.

Chapek’s inaction and obvious games trying to play both sides for maximum return not only blew up in Disney’s face but also harms harms thousands of thousands of LGBT American’s if not more . Other ed states are now planning the same such bills now that it passed easily in Florida thanks to Disney’s non-interference. And make no mistake that if Disney and Chapek would have taken a strong stance against the DSGB it would have never passed.

Disney has harmed the very people that for decades it has claimed to have supported. Disney and Chapek must think that a few Gay Days and some rainbow mouse ears is all it takes to be an LGBT ally.

It’s not.

Bob Chapek MUST RESIGN as CEO of Disney immediately.
