Along with the accurate “get woke, go broke” mantra, the establishment propaganda media now seems to include giant corporations who go along with the crowd because of the narratives pushed by a vocal minority on social media and the aforementioned media. Disney is no longer the source of family entertainment that they once used to be. They’re just another in a long line of major companies that kowtow to the perpetually offended and divisive mob.
Now, Disney is reaping what they’ve sowed.
After entrepreneur and innovator Elon Musk told the woke mob of companies essentially “blackmailing” his X Corp. because of said narrative to “go f**k yourself,” while also exposing the same companies as those who only “care about looking good while doing evil,” a boycott and degree of cancellation of the “House of Mouse’s” streaming service Disney+ has been trending on X.
According to The Washington Times:
Influential right-wing accounts such as End Wokeness, Libs of TikTok, Zero Hedge, and Elon Musk (Parody) urged subscribers to drop Disney+ and Disney-owned Hulu in response to the advertising pullout by the Walt Disney Company and other marquee firms.
Those companies also include Apple, IBM, Paramount, NBCUniversal, Comcast, and Warner Bros. Discovery, according to media reports.
The advertiser pullout from X looks to be the result of a coordinated effort, enacted by misinformation from supposed far-left “watchdogs.”
Far-left Media Matters is now the subject of an investigation by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for “fraudulent activity” meant to dissuade advertisers from sponsoring posts on X. The investigation came at about the same time as a “thermonuclear lawsuit” filed on November 20 by Musk and X Corp.
As a reminder, here’s part of what the lawsuit says:
Defendant Media Matters for America (“Media Matters”) is a self-proclaimed media watchdog that decided it would not let the truth get in the way of a story it wanted to publish about X Corp. Looking to portray X’s social networking platform as being dominated by “white nationalist and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” Media Matters knowingly and maliciously manufactured side-by-side images depicting advertisers’ posts on X Corp.’s social media platform beside Neo-Nazi and white-nationalist fringe content and then portrayed these manufactured images as if they were what typical X users experience on the platform. Media Matters designed both these images and its resulting media strategy to drive advertisers from the platform and destroy X Corp.
Disney has found out the hard way over the last few years that their constant pandering to activists who most likely spend next to nothing on their products isn’t a winning formula.
