Disney has come under major fire after policies and comments have sparked criticism that the company supports sexualizing children from a young age.
The protest was organized at least in part by Sean Feucht, a Christian leader who led a series of “Let Us Worship” events that protested the COVID shutdowns on worship gatherings.
“Parents are joining together to rally outside Disney’s Headquarters to send a message,” he said. “Disney crossed the line when they began to enable those who want to fight to sexualize our kids!”
The controversy arose when Disney came out vocally against a Florida law that bans teachers from talking to Kindergarten through third graders about gender and sexuality. After pushback, a top Disney executive committed to have half of all its characters be LGBTQIA or from racial minorities by the end of this year.
The protest has garnered widespread media attention.
So, the New York Times published a hit piece on Christians and me today — on the very same day we are set to have a massive protest with parents at Disney. Not a coincidence.https://t.co/XreaDRbNlo
