Disney was silent about the SCOTUS opinion leak, but it affected the bill for Florida parents

Disney has been silent about the leak of the Supreme Court’s opinion, even after making numerous public statements about the latest Florida laws.

CEO Bob Chabek issued a statement regarding the Florida Parental Rights in Education Act shortly after the legislation was formally signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis. Chuck said the bill, which he also called the Don’t Say Jay Bill, “never should have passed and shouldn’t have been signed into law.”

Disney did not respond to FOX Business’s multiple requests for comment.

The silence from Disney, as well as other giants like Walmart, became even more pronounced after public comments were made about the Florida bill.

“I needed to be a stronger ally in the fight for equal rights, and I let you down. I’m sorry,” Chappe said in a statement on March 11.

However, that wasn’t enough to stop an employee coming out on March 22 to demand that the company do more to protect its LGBTQ+ employees.
