icon Nov 28 - Disney hints its woke politics ‘present risks to our reputation and brands’

The Walt Disney Company acknowledged that its left-leaning politics may have alienated a segment of the population — putting a dent in the House of Mouse’s bottom line.

A recent company filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission included a reference to “risks relating to misalignment with public and consumer tastes.”

“Generally, our revenues and profitability are adversely impacted when our entertainment offerings and products, as well as our methods to make our offerings and products available to consumers, do not achieve sufficient consumer acceptance,” the company said in its SEC filing.

Disney went on to note that “consumers’ perceptions of our position on matters of public interest, including our efforts to achieve certain of our environmental and social goals, often differ widely and present risks to our reputation and brands.”

The contents of the SEC filing were noted earlier by legal scholar Jonathan Turley, who is also a columnist for The Hill.

CEO Bob Iger — who retook the reins at Disney a year ago after his chosen successor Bob Chapek came under fire for his management of the entertainment giant — told investors in late September that the company will “quiet the noise” in a culture war that has pitted social conservatives against the global media and entertainment conglomerate

The acknowledgment comes as Disney’s stock price tries to recover from a nine-year low while still involved in a bruising legal battle with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over legislation that bans the teaching of s3x- and gender-identity education to elementary school students.

In March of last year, DeSantis allies in the Florida state legislature passed a measure dubbed by critics as “Don’t Say g@y” which proposed limiting instruction on gender identity and s3xual orientation from kindergarten to third grade.

Chapek, Disney’s then-CEO, bowed to pressure from outraged employees who demanded that the company publicly take a stand denouncing the bill.

After DeSantis signed the bill into law, Disney released a statement saying the legislation “should never have passed and should never have been signed into law.”

Disney’s public rebuke of DeSantis prompted the governor to move to strip the company of its semi-autonomous status which it enjoys by virtue of its control of the now-defunct Reedy Creek Improvement District.

“If Disney wants to pick a fight, they chose the wrong guy,” the Republican governor, who is among several candidates vying for the GOP nomination for president, said.

In November of last year, Chapek was ousted in favor of his predecessor, Bob Iger, who returned to helm the company.

Iger hit back at DeSantis, calling his policies “not just anti-Florida, but anti-business.”

In April, Disney filed a lawsuit against the governor, alleging that he violated the company’s First Amendment rights to freedom of speech.

Disney has hit rough times economically. The company has been hamstrung by steep losses in its streaming division as well as underwhelming box office returns on big-budget pictures in the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” franchise.

“The Marvels,” its latest MCU sequel, has generated just $76.9 million domestically and $110.2 million overseas in the three weeks since it opened.

Disney’s most recent animated offering, “Wish,” managed just a measly $31.7 million over the five-day Thanksgiving period.

It had been forecast to debut closer to $50 million.

“Wish,” a fairy tale centered around a wished-upon star, fared better than last year’s Thanksgiving release for Disney, “Strange World,” which bombed with a $18.9 million holiday opening.

Disney reported sharp profit growth for its fiscal fourth quarter which ended in late September. It also announced additional cost-cutting measures totaling $7.5 billion — or $2 billion more than what was originally expected.

Sadly the mental illness of homos3xuality has become political and adopted by the left. The pandering party. And you got dudes up in here who grew up in the 80s and 90s knowing good and well we didn't play no g@y mess. But because it's become political those same dudes are now fighting for it. Deep down everyone is against it though. And thats why Disney is bleeding money.

Idk we just live in some stupid times. I wish the left and right could get on the same page and stand against this g@y crap. But our government are master manipulators.

As I've been saying for a long time, the race agenda has allowed the g@y agenda to infiltrate the black community. They used the race agenda to poison the black community with homos3xuality acceptance. That's why you got dudes calling everyone white as the "ultimate insult" all while defending this g@y nonsense.

The government won.

Okay, it sounds good, but the presidential election is coming up. You know some unarmed black man is going to be shot/murdered by the police somewhere; people will be protesting, and the pressure will pull them right back into woke politics. It's like the defund the police movement that went on a many major cities. That was because of the public's anger in the wake of George Floyd's murder. Now, Democrats are running on law and order which used to be a dog whistle. Will they continue that when there's a public outcry to defund the police again?

It's counter intuitive to everything Disney is built upon.


Family entertainment is built on the strongest ship that builds families -for better or worse-...

Religious, religious moderates and family oriented units are the largest costumer base for Disney. They create the magnetism that draws in the loud and wrong g@ys and agenda drive folk.

You know how nuts it was that Christians and Muslims both used to trust Disney?

If the product is good enough, people will ignore or even outright fail to understand or acknowledge the wokeness in the media the consume

Cyberpunk saw a resurgence in popularity after he anime dropped last year and again is smashing sales with the DLC





And there are several g@y characters in the game.

Judy is lesbian

Kerry is g@y

River Ward is g@y

Claire is tr@ns(she even has a tr@nsgender flag on the back of her truck).




Spider-Man 2 has been catching a bunch of sh1t from anti wokers about lgbt in the games but yet





These are the same people that think Metal Gear Solid and Red Dead Redemption are anti woke, pro conservative games.

I can guarantee a good chunk of Disney movies low ticket sales are due to parents simply not letting their kids see it, which is a reflection of the adults, not the kids.

The Barbie movie is the 14th highest grossing movie of all time. Even Harty Potter ain’t touching it



The younger generation ain’t like their parents. You got kids rallying together, staging walkouts to support their tr@ns classmates

Republicans just got slaughtered in the recent elections because they spent all their time campaigning about the 7 tr@ns kids in sports and not talking about real issues.

Yep a lot of g@y and tr@ns people are in the animation industry. Along with the younger generation believing their personal values should be the company values and should be represented is the real reason why they went that way. Disney should of told them $TFU or you’re replaced.

Nah. Fundamentalists always have been against Disney or any other form of entertainment that promotes "witchcraft" and other things they consider from The Devil. They are well known for not allowing Disney, Harry Potter and the Twilight series in their homes. They even have alternative "Christian Entertainment" companies that make movies and books for them. Not as common anymore, they used to have a lot of video stores around that rented out movies with all the s3x scenes and cuss words removed from them.

As for the subject of this thread, I've never looked at Disney as being in any way kind of progressive. They seem to me to be one of the most conservative companies out there.

That is why I said religious and religious moderates. Fundies have always been a small minority but the prevailing religious masses have always rocked with Disney. Despite hiccups. Which is in part reason why you detected Disney to be conservative. They were.

Conservatism may have even protected the base of their story telling gusto.

Conservative entertainment is still out there but Disney used to be a buffer for family oriented Americans that were largely religious, conservative, sometimes both and also American consumers who weren't driven by political correctness.

And exactly is it that’s for kids? Last I checked, adults watch this Disney too.

You nikkas always move the goalpost. Now it’s “they don’t make it their main platform” as if y’all don’t respond with the same bi#ching about the agenda even when it’s just a side character in it for three minutes. Judy is a crucial part of the main storyline. The other three characters have their own story arcs as well.

How is the target audience relevant when you respond the same exact way when it’s present in adult themed media like the last of us?

Nothing you said negates anything I said. The Spiderman controversy proves that it doesn’t matter if it’s not their main platform, whatever that means.

Y’all seriously lack critical thinking.







“But….but it’s not their main platform”

Tell me, how to you assess what a main platform is. Where’s the breaking point from in your face to not in your face?
