Watch: Elon Musk slams Disney, evokes the spirit of Walt himself

It’s no secret that Elon Musk isn’t a fan of Disney (the new progressive Disney, that is). He and Disney CEO Bob Iger have been at each other’s throats since Disney pulled its advertising from X over disagreements with Musk regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict. Tesla responded by eliminating Disney+ from some of its vehicles, which has only added fuel to the fire.

However, the conflict between the two mega-companies underwent a plot development over the weekend when Musk warned Europe to “not import” what he calls “the woke mind virus,” which he also said has been the reason for Disney’s downfall.

“If we’re going to fight the woke mind virus, then the woke mind virus will fight back, and unfortunately, Disney is deeply infected with the woke mind virus,” Musk said. “In fact, if you ask AI what is the most woke company on Earth, it’s Disney.”

“I think they should be asking themselves, ‘What would Walt Disney think of Disney today?’ I think he’s turning in his grave. I think he’s not happy, [and] if the namesake of the company is not happy, that’s probably a bad sign.”

“Walt Disney – what did he care about? He cared about bringing joy to people’s lives, making wonderful things that children and families could enjoy, and creating some of the coolest art in the world … stuff that even 100 years after it's created, we still remember,” Musk continued.

“But Disney, at least for now, is deeply infected with the woke mind virus, and I think that will change over time.”

“What he’s saying,” Dave Rubin explains, “is America is struggling right now, and of course it’s not just the political side of things. … Our cultural institutions – Disney, which was just supposed to make great things, fun things, capture the imagination, have kids looking at that star in the distance going ‘I could do that’ ... has collapsed.”

“That is a problem because if we don’t have anything that will capture our imagination, to give us the good stories of humanity, then we don’t have much of a future.”
