After a major outcry, Disney CEO Bob Chapek has promised to make more gay content for kids and has reintroduced a kissing sequence between two women in the next ‘Toy Story’ spinoff, ‘Lightyear.’
Great Game India –
On Tuesday, Disney employees protested the company’s tardy response to Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, as parents fight back against the company’s last-minute attempts to shield itself from allegations that it isn’t doing enough to support the LGBTQ community.
CEO Bob Chapek said the entertainment powerhouse would form a task force to guarantee that more LGBTQ-awareness content is available for youngsters during a town hall meeting on Monday.
After Pixar employees accused the parent corporation of deleting gay characters from films, news surfaced on Friday that Disney was reintroducing a kissing sequence between two women in the next ‘Toy Story’ spinoff, ‘Lightyear.’
“It’s not Disney’s place to play politics. Buzz light-year doesn’t need gay characters. It needs a good story, good performances, and to answer archetypal questions,” tweeted Twitter user @RageQuitSco. “If the inclusion of gay characters does that, I’ll show it to my kids. But not if it’s just far left propaganda.”
