A woke Disney executive gave this mind-blowing excuse for why the company is failing

Feb 28, 2024

Disney is being decimated by massive financial losses after going all in on pushing wokeness.

Management continues to refuse to take responsibility for their failures.

And a woke Disney executive gave this mind-blowing excuse for why the company is failing. 

Disney’s entertainment empire was formerly the gold standard in Hollywood for generating box office hits.

The company is reeling after it decided to prioritize pushing a divisive, Left-wing political agenda over delivering family-friendly entertainment.

Disney’s movies have lost their magic touch with audiences after high-profile films like Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, The Little Mermaid, and The Marvels lost billions of dollars in 2023.

Instead of learning from their box office failures, one Disney executive lashed out at audiences instead.

Woke Disney executive blames box office bombs on audiences’ sexism

 Disney has lost its connection with audiences, which turned it into an entertainment powerhouse.

Instead of changing course, it appears the company is going to blame its audience for not supporting its increasingly woke content.

An anonymous Disney executive sent a message to journalist Matt Belloni of Puck News, who publishes a widely read entertainment industry newsletter, about their recent struggles.

“Everyone says ‘It’s the movies, stupid,’ which is an easy thing for people to say. More appealing movies are a great way to jump the political issues. But more and more, our audience (or the segment of the audience that has been politicized) equate the perceived messaging in a film as a quality issue. They won’t say they find female empowerment distasteful in The Marvels or Star Wars [the latest trilogy starring Daisy Ridley], but they will say they don’t like those movies because they are ‘bad.’ So ‘make better movies’ becomes code for ‘make movies that conform to regressive gender stereotypes or put men front and center in the narrative,’” the Disney executive told Belloni.

Disney plowing forward with a failed strategy of woke movies

The anonymous Disney executive avoided any self-reflection on why the once dominant movie studio is now struggling.

He had the arrogance to put all of the blame on audiences for not supporting movies that prioritize pushing a political message over entertainment.

Blaming audiences for being sexist for not supporting The Marvels or the latest Star Wars trilogy is a cheap excuse to avoid any responsibility for creating movies people do not want to see.

Disney movies like the latest Indiana Jones, Haunted Mansion, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania had male leads and still bombed.

The problem with Disney’s movies is trying to pass off thinly disguised Left-wing political messaging as entertainment. 

Disney is in crisis mode, and insulting its audience by accusing them of being sexist will not help the company win back customers.
