Walt Disney did not envision his company decomposing into a sewer of wokeness and duplicity.
The Walt Disney Company is expanding its media empire into at least ten anti-gay countries and regions as the company takes a left-wing stance in the U.S. that includes denouncing Florida’s parental rights bill.
The entertainment and media titan announced on Tuesday that Disney+, the company’s subscription-based streaming service, would make its way into 42 new areas in Europe, Asia and West Africa starting in May with a rollout of launches going through mid-June.
However, nearly a dozen of the announced places where the streaming service will enter have strict anti-gay laws.
As part of its expansion, Disney+ will make its way into Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Yemen – all of which outlaw homosexuality.
In many of those places, same-sex activity is punishable through lengthy imprisonments, hard labor and fines.
In others, like Saudi Arabia, where there is no criminal code, homosexuals and transgender individuals face an array of punishments, ranging from fines to chemical castrations to death. In Yemen, homosexuality is also punishable by death.
The announcement of Disney+’s expansion into anti-LGBTQ+ areas comes as Disney positions itself as supportive of the LGBTQ+ community in the United States, saying in a statement earlier this week that they 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.”
But they’ll rake in as much money as they can in countries that imprison and execute people with the the multi-sexual orientations they promote.
