Disney Faces ANOTHER D.E.I. Legal Bombshell...

America First Legal Sends Letter to Board of Directors
of The Walt Disney Company, Alleging Unlawful
Discrimination and Misleading of Shareholders
America First Legal (AFL) sent a letter to The Walt Disney Company (Disney), notifying the Company’s CEO, Bob Iger, the Board of Directors, and the management team of their alleged fiduciary duty breaches and federal securities law violations that have led to an approximate forty percent drop in Disney’s share value since February 2021. This letter arises from the Company’s civil rights violations in employment and contracting and the damage to Disney’s brand, properties, and commercial reputation by management’s manufactured misalignment between its woke political and social agenda and the vast majority of the Company’s customers.

In February, AFL revealed Disney’s perverse system of discriminatory race and sex quotas in front of and behind the camera by filing a federal civil rights complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

  • All Disney General Entertainment productions are required to comply with Disney’s DEI “Inclusion Standards.” Some of the standards explicitly provide that fifty percent of the following jobs must be filled by members of “Underrepresented Groups:” Regular and recurring actors and characters in Disney content, producers and writing staff, overall crew or project staff, line producers and/or production department heads – including, for example, the director of photography, composer, costume designer, editor, production designer, and music supervisor.
  • Disney, along with Sundance Institute, runs a grant program that provides $25,000 to  “Underrepresented Directors,” which it defines as “women, AAPI, Black, Indigenous/Native, Latinx, LGBTQIA+, disability-identifying, and religiously marginalized individuals.”
