The Walt Disney Company has been a hot topic in the news recently.
The battle between Disney and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues, Iger commented on accusations that Disney contributes toward the “woke agenda,” and after X (Formerly Twitter) CEO Elon Musk made anti-semitic comments on the platform, Disney, along with Comcast/NBC Universal, Paramount Global, Warner Bros. Discovery, Apple, Lionsgate, and other major media companies pulled advertising from the site entirely. Now, Musk is responding.
Regarding Iger’s decision to pull Disney ads from the platform, Musk said, “Don’t advertise. If someone is going to try and blackmail me with advertising? Blackmail me with money? Go f–k yourself. Go f–k yourself, is that clear? Hey Bob, if you’re in the audience. That’s how I feel, don’t advertise” (The Hollywood Reporter).
He further elaborates by stating that the advertising boycott is going to kill the company. He then said, “And the whole world will know that those advertisers killed the company.”
He later said that in retrospect, he shouldn’t have responded to the post that was deemed anti-semitic and should not have joined the conversation. He claims that by doing so, he “handed a loaded gun” to those that hate him.
