'They Brought This On Themselves': DeSantis Fires Back After Disney's Bob Iger Regrets Being 'Dragged' into Parental Rights

TrĂ© Goins-Phillips : Nov 30, 2022  Faithwire.com

"...These are parents' rights, important policies in our state that are very popular. And so they brought this on themselves. All we did was stand up for what's right.

Under Chapek's leadership, The Walt Disney Company bowed to external political pressure. The ex-CEO condemned Florida lawmakers and DeSantis for advancing what many in the media dubbed the "Don't Say Gay bill," despite the fact the then-proposal placed no prohibition on such verbiage.
