New-old Disney CEO Bob Iger is already trying to right the ship.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, during a recent employee town hall, returning Disney CEO Bob Iger said he regrets that Disney was dragged into a battle with Florida and its governor.
“I was sorry to see us dragged into that battle. And I have no idea exactly what its ramifications are in terms of the business itself,” Iger said.
“What I can say is, the state of Florida has been important to us for a long time, and we have been very important to the state of Florida. That is something I’m extremely mindful of and will articulate if I get the chance.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) reacted to the soundbyte on Tuesday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight.
“We didn’t drag them in, Tucker. They went in on their own, and not only opposed the bill. They threatened to get it repealed.”
“These are parents’ rights, important policies in our state that are very popular. And so they brought this on themselves,” he continued. “All we did was stand up for what’s right. And, yes, they’re a big, powerful company. But you know what? We stand up for our folks. And I don’t care what a Burbank-based California company says about our laws.”
