And it’s Walt Disney Corporation:
Walt Disney has been cancelled by Walt Disney.
Here’s the back story:
When Disneyland first opened in 1955, Walt Disney delivered a speech welcoming people to the happiest place on Earth.
To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world. Thank you.
For 67 years that speech was delivered – but not this year.
Disney won’t say why they made the change, but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that the word that triggered the woke Disney execs was “America.”
Please reflect on the “values,” if the word fits, of a company whose management has decided to cancel its founder, the highest icon of children’s entertainment America has ever produced.
Words fail me. But then, sometimes there are no words.
