Disney Company has officially condemned the controversial Florida legislation known as the "Don't Say Gay" bill, which was signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday.The condemnation, which comes from a Disney spokesperson and was obtained by Deadline, comes after the company faced backlash from its employees and customers over its complicated response to the bill.
After Disney CEO Bob Chapek refused to give a direct statement on the bill, the company's employees staged walkouts demanding action."Florida's HB 1557, also known as the 'Don't Say Gay' bill, should never have passed and should never have been signed into law," said a Disney spokesperson in the statement released Monday. "We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country."However, Disney has now taken things one step further by saying that the company has a new commitment to striking down the legislation."Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the Legislature or struck down in the courts," the spokesperson explained, "and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that."Schoolchildren were in attendance during DeSantis' signing event on Monday.
The governor promised that the legislation will allow parents to "send their kids to school to get an education, not an indoctrination," the Associated Press reported.According to the bill's official text, HB 1557 establishes into law that "classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or.
