Ron DeSantis on Tuesday discussed The Walt Disney Company speaking out against his state's Parental Rights in Education bill, noting the Disney's cruise line features a stop in a nation where homosexual intercourse is illegal.DeSantis made the comments during an appearance on Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight.

DeSantis hit out at Disney for recently taking a stand for LGBTQ+ rights after employees protested the company's silence about Florida's so-called "Don't Say Gay" education bill, which prohibits teaching kids lessons on sexuality, gender identity and sexual orientation in ways that are deemed inappropriate.After DeSantis signed the education bill into law on Monday, Disney released a statement that said its "goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts..." The statement also proclaimed the company is dedicated to standing up for LGBTQ+ people across the nation.DeSantis told Carlson he felt Disney only offered public pushback to the legislation after the "woke mob" came after the company.

He also implied Disney was being hypocritical since its cruise line operation offers stops and activities on the Caribbean island nation of Dominica, where same-sex relations is punished with prison terms."It's just an odd manifestation of their corporate values that they actually do Disney cruises, Tucker, to the nation of Dominica, which criminalizes homosexuality," DeSantis said. "So they're fine doing that and lining their pockets."Carlson played a video for the governor he said was obtained by the conservative journalist Christopher Rufo.
