Disney’s Cinderella Story Comes to an End at Reedy Creek
For once, Disney has no comment. Bob Chapek's company, whose loudmouth Leftists pushed the CEO into a losing war with Florida leaders, had nothing to say Friday when the governor pulled the plug on Disney's sweetheart deal with the state. To most people's surprise, the company that couldn't keep its mouth shut on the state's popular parental rights in education bill couldn't find the words to respond to the GOP's elimination of their autonomous district (after the Magic Kingdom tried to sprinkle fairy dust on public policy).
“The entertainment giant has not commented publicly on the proposal to dissolve its government,” reporters point out–a dramatic shift from the outspokenness that got them into this mess. Has Disney learned its lesson? Don't count on it.
The controversy that had everyone's eyes glued to Florida isn't over.
