The bad headlines are seemingly never-ending for Disney after going woke.

One illegal move landed the company in a courtroom.

And Disney was hit with a lawsuit after they fired a non-woke employee for this surprising reason.

The Walt Disney Company is headed to court after a lawsuit from a father and son who worked on the crew of the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital.

James and Timothy Wahl were fired for refusing to comply with the company’s vaccine mandate.

The father and son argued that they should be granted an exemption because of their Christian faith.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the Wahls by ordering their lawsuit against ABC to move forward.

Former employees’ attorney slams Disney for firing

Attorney Scott Street, who represents the Wahls, told Deadline that he looks forward to holding Disney accountable for the firing in court.

“As many people move beyond the pandemic, this ruling should serve as a reminder of the thousands of people who lost their careers because they asserted their rights and stood up to their employers’ efforts to make them violate their conscience,” Street told Deadline. “The pandemic won’t be over until every corporation that violated its employees’ rights has been held accountable. We look forward to presenting this case to a jury soon.”

The case could potentially have implications for other workers in Hollywood who were fired for refusing to comply with mandates.

In another case, Former General Hospital actor Ingo Rademacher, who starred as Jasper “Jax” Jacks for over twenty years, was fired after ABC refused to grant his religious exemption to the mandate.
