Disney Duals Desantis
By: Hanna Virts On Wednesday, April 26, Disney sued Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in retaliation for the governor attempting to take away special privileges of the company. Earlier this year, Florida Legislation passed the “Parental Rights in Education Act”, more widely known as the “Don’t Say Gay Law”, prohibiting any kind of education on sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten through third grade. Disney did not support this kind of regulation, which began tensions between the organization and Florida legislation. Then, the special tax and governance grants that the company had had since it was founded were potentially going to be taken away, hinting at the end of the decades old agreement between the park and the state. Now that Disney has retaliated, DeSantis accused Florida’s most iconic business and the biggest tourist attracter in the state of being “upset that they are actually having to live by the same rules as everybody else.” All of this is amid the rumors of DeSantis’s 2024 presidential campaign, which is expected any time this summer.
