Disney CEO: We Stood Our Ground Against The Haters

“We believe Disney is a place where people can come together with shared values of what an optimistic and ideal future can be.

“We certainly don’t want to get caught up in any political subterfuge, but at the same time we also realize that we want to represent a brighter tomorrow for families of all types, regardless of how they define themselves.

“We are a very cohesive, big, happy family. I think our staff saw how I stood firm during the ultimate barrage of attacks from certain political constituencies and, frankly, I think it was much stronger and much longer and much harder than they ever could have imagined and we stood our ground.

“So I think it’s safe to say that actions speak louder than words, and they saw resiliency and consistency no matter how strong the attacks.” – Disney CEO Bob Chapek, speaking to the Hollywood Reporter.
