Disney took a strong position against the State of Florida's Bill, inaccurately nicknamed the "Don't Say Gay" bill, which restored parental rights otherwise usurped by the public school system. Florida's HB 1557 bill has since caused some Disney employees to question the company's support for the bill on its core values.
Pat Gray explains how some Disney employees voiced their desire for the company to remain neutral on woke cultural issues that have resulted in a shift of Disney's once-held values. Regardless of individual support for or against the change in Disney's direction, the company plans to expand operations in at least ten explicitly anti-gay countries and regions.
On Monday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat points out Disney's hypocritical decision to expand service to LGBTQ intolerant Arab nations in pursuit of money, while crusading against the so-called bigotry in the State of Florida.
"You know, they're trying to expand their horizons in the Middle East," Pat says, "so they'll look the other way on a couple of things." Nearly a dozen places where Disney+ will soon be offered have strict anti-gay laws. Countries like Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Yemen, and the region of Palestine. Homosexual acts are often punished with lengthy jail sentences, hard labor, and considerable fines in many countries to which Disney will soon expand.
"Hmm? Isn't that interesting," Pat remarks. "Why would Disney expand their service into bigoted countries like that?" He asks. In a joking tone, he adds that maybe it is "okay to say gay" in bigoted countries as long as no one identifies as gay?
