Disney inability To quickly address the company’s involvement in funding lawmakers involved in the alleged “Don’t Say Like Me” Florida bill has seen much internal and external discontent with the House of Mouse. But now, things are slowly starting to change – if not nearly enough.

Last night, in the wake of the news raised about Disney employees around the company They were planning to strike to protest Bob Tangled to the aforementioned Florida legislation, which seeks to limit recognition of the presence of LGBT people in educational settings, Marvel Studios It became Disney’s latest arm to issue a public statement condemning anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation.

In a statement released on Twitter, the studio pledged to promote egalitarian values, saying in part: “We strongly condemn any and all legislation that violates the fundamental human rights of the LGBTQIA+ community.” The studio went on to say, “Marvel Studios stands for hope, inclusivity and strength. And we proudly stand with the community.”

Much of the reaction to turning Disney CEO Bob tangled up about the company’s response to the Florida bill — following revelations that Disney donated money to several of the lawmakers behind its creation — has been internal to the company.
