Disney CEO Threatens to Pull out of Georgia Over Abortion Ban
Nothing quite like cheating your bottom line like supporting a boycott which damages your bottom line. Disney, which makes a sizable chunk of its money by selling movie tickets to teenagers and children, is now joining the boycott Georgia wave. Georgia, I'll remind you, is trying to stem the fetal bloodbath carried out via abortion. So Disney's CEO Bob Iger is basically saying fewer children is better, and if Georgia doesn't get with it, if Georgia doesn't allow children with beating hearts to be snuffed womb-side, Disney may pull out of Georgia's blossoming film industry quicker than you can say Frozen 2: Letting More Snow Go.
Asked if Disney, who filmed parts of Black Panther and Avengers Endgame in Georgia, CEO Bob Iger said:
“I rather doubt we will,” Iger said in an interview ahead of the dedication for a new “Star Wars” section at Disneyland. “I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard. Right now we are watching it very carefully.”
If the law takes effect, “I don’t see how it’s practical for us to continue to shoot there,” he added.
If you, like me, had no idea Georgia making films was even a thing up until Georgia banned abortion after a fetal heartbeat, then allow me to educate. Georgia offers a tax credit, and it must be a sizeable one, which has nabbed Hollywood's attention. As a result, there are more than 92,000 film jobs in Georgia according to MPAA. 455 productions were shot in Georgia just last year alone.
Methinks that tax credit is huge. Which also leads me to think Disney and Netflix, which also making grumble sounds about Georgia, is bluffing. Saving fat stacks to make more fat stacks is what Hollywood is all about. Aside from its thriving rape culture. Hey... maybe THAT's why these Hollywood titans need abortion all the time and everywhere, to cover up all that rape evidence.
But back to another point. Are you telling me if a woman working on Avengers We Back suddenly finds herself burdened with an ungrateful fetal mass, she cannot just skip over into a state which says she can totally free herself of pesky uterine invaders? Does Georgia have some kind of impenetrable wall I'm unaware of, where women's tummies are subject to ultrasounds before they can pass through it?
No, of course not. Disney, Netflix, they're just puffing out their chests for virtue signaling. Here's hoping Georgia stands strong behind its valuing of life over Hollywood's overflowing coffers.
