Corporations around the world appear to be realizing the error of their ways.
Suddenly, once uber-woke companies are getting very quiet about support of left-wing causes as they see a rapid decline in sales.
But leave it to California Governor Gavin Newsom to show his solidarity with this woke corporation and then promptly get roasted on Twitter.
The heads of Disney didn’t get the memo about how little Ron DeSantis cares about the woke agenda.
In an ill-advised move, Disney tried to take on Florida Governor DeSantis by speaking out against Florida’s new Parental Rights in Education bill.
The bill prohibits “classroom instruction” about sexual orientation and gender identity in schools for children kindergarten age through third grade.
The left-wing radicals have taken to calling it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill in an attempt to paint it as something forbids the use of the word gay or talk about being gay in schools.
The bill never once states the word gay and does not ban any variation of the word, it simply states that children that young don’t need to be taught about sex.
But in typical fashion, the Left wants you to believe that Ron DeSantis and the conservative Right are trying to stomp out the freedoms of the LGBT population.
Bob Chapek, Disney CEO, spoke out against the bill as anti-LGBT and that’s when things took a turn for the worse for the company.
DeSantis responded immediately, calling the company “woke.”
Now it seems the Governor from the state with the highest poverty rate in the country wants Disney to come his way.
Gavin Newsom hopped into the debate and told Disney to relocate to California.
“Disney, the door is open to bring those jobs back to California – the state that actually represents the values of your workers,” Newsom tweeted Saturday.
Newsom must have forgotten that in July, Disney moved 2,000 employees out of California to Florida in large part because of “Florida’s business-friendly climate.”
The backlash was quick and fierce.
“You run the state with the highest level of poverty in the country. Your values suck,” Erielle Davidson, associate director for the Center for the Middle East and International Law at George Mason Law School, tweeted.
Even DeSantis’ Press Secretary, Christina Pushaw, got in on the Newsom bashing by tweeting a friendly reminder that “Gavin Newsom kept Disneyland closed for 13 months straight.”
Gavin Newsom is just another radical leftist who is totally out of touch with the American people and, frankly, reality.
