WATCH: DeSantis Slams Disney After They Apologized for Fighting Florida; ‘They Brought This on Themselves’

In a Tuesday night interview, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis attacked Disney after its CEO, Bob Iger, expressed regret that the business had been “dragged” into a dispute with the state of Florida.

DeSantis made the comments when asked about Disney’s opposition to the Florida Parental Rights in Education Act, which forbade schools from discussing sexual matters with young children, during an interview with Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.

Iger was heard saying that he felt sorry to see Disney pulled into that battle in a clip played by Carlson.  He also is unsure of the full implications for the company itself.

Iger continued, “What I can say is the state of Florida has been important to us for a long time, and we have been very important to the state of Florida.”

DeSantis responded, “We didn’t drag them in, Tucker,” when asked how he would respond to Iger’s comments. He continued to tell Tucker that they went in on their own and that they just didn’t disagree with the bill, but they threatened to overturn it.

These parental rights are significant and well-liked laws in the state. So, he added that Disney caused this themselves.  “All we did was stand up for what’s right. And, yes, they’re a big, powerful company. But you know what? We stand up for our folks. And I don’t care what a Burbank-based California company says about our laws.”
