CNBC released a story regarding the ongoing battle between Disney and DeSantis. The Walt Disney Company has expanded its federal lawsuit accusing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis of doubling down on his retribution campaign against Disney.
DeSantis recently signed legislation voiding Disney’s development deals. In response to that, Disney decided to file an updated lawsuit. Let’s look at what Disney wrote in its additions to the civil complaint filed.
“Governor DeSantis and his allies have no apparent intent to moderate their retaliatory campaign any time soon”CNBC
Disney’s amended lawsuit also mentioned that Florida’s Republican-led legislation last week targeted their monorail system that transports guests to EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, and nearby resorts.
According to the story on CNBC, Disney alleges that DeSantis has waged a war of retaliation against the company after they spoke up publicly about the controversial Florida bill that was widely known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. This leads to the fact that Disney added a new quote from DeSantis when he answered a question about Disney during a press conference on Friday, May 5th. The governor said, “This all started, of course, with our parents’ rights bill.” Disney added that quote to the first page of the lawsuit under the introduction section.
CNBC noted that DeSantis’ office did not immediately respond to their request for a comment on the amended complaint.
Hi, I'm Erica, and I write about all things Disney. Before working for The DIS, I was a theme park performer at SeaWorld, but I also performed at Disney. I have such an immense love for theme parks to the point I studied them in college.
