'The Magic Is Gone,' Disney Employees Strike Back At Woke Company

'The Magic Is Gone,' Disney Employees Strike Back At Woke Company

Some Disney employees are speaking out against the company and its decision to go “woke” that has placed it at odds with conservatives.

This week a handful of them talked to Fox News reporter Raymond Arroyo to complain about what the company has done.

“You can clearly see the magic is gone,” one of Disney’s employees said.

“I am deeply saddened by what Disney has chosen to take their stand on politically and just with their money, in general,” she said, complaining that she has experienced “such a drastic change” between when she started working for Disney and the way it is now.

Another worked that Arroyo spoke to said that Disney “has made it very clear that conservative Christian voices have no place visiting their parks or working at their parks.”

They said that for the past years Disney has been “heavy” in telling its employees  “things to say” and “things not to say” to patrons in order to not offend anyone. She alleged that employees were instructed not to say normal words like “he, she, ladies, and gentlemen.”

“Basically, we have to be in fear of what we say now,” they said.

Jose Castillo, a Disney employee and Republican who is also running for Congress in Florida, said that the company is not catering to the “silent majority.”

“At this point, I believe the company has been hijacked by the liberal left,” he said.

“We need new leadership,” he said.

“Our CEO Bob Chapek, he’s supposed to be leading the company, not following the woke mob. He has fiduciary duty to the stockholders of this company. That means he has to protect their investment, protect their money. But instead what does he do? He protects the feelings of a few minority workers.”

The report comes a month after a group of Disney employees published an open letter top management asking it to be politically neutral and complaining that they felt unwelcome.

“As employees of the Walt Disney Company, we believe in the dignity of all people. This is why we do what we do. We write stories. We make costumes. We act in parades. We run cruises. We stream movies. We make magic. We do this because our work contributes to a fountain of wonder that inspires joy, awe, and delight in guests and audiences of all ages. We are proud employees of the Walt Disney Company. We love our jobs because we get to share the wonder of life and human experience with millions of people worldwide,” the letter from the employees said.

“Over the last few weeks, we have watched as our leadership has expressed their condemnation for laws and policies we support. We have watched as our colleagues, convinced that no one in the company could possibly disagree with them and grow increasingly aggressive in their demands. They insist that [Disney] take a strong stance on not only this issue but other legislation and openly advocate for the punishment of employees who disagree with them,” the employees wrote, later adding, “[Disney] has fostered an environment of fear that any employee who does not toe the line will be exposed and dismissed,” it said.
