Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, is being criticized for the suspicion of Disney incorporating unsuitable venereal content in the functioning of its visual arts. Bob Igar clearly states that he desires to stay disconnected from any kind of conflicting cultural outburst that is taking place in society. He denies any kind of false accusations that the rightist party claims against him. Bob Iger publicly states that this kind of libel is highly unacceptable to Disney.
The year 2022 witnessed huge criticism against Disney because some of its employees had spoken against a law concerning gender identities. Disney has also gotten involved in a battle with the law at hand for its accusations from Florida. Ron DeSantis stays on the side of Disney regarding all the protests and calls it a “woke” corporation. The protests have gone so far as a widespread rally with the flags having Nazi signs in front of Disney World which Bob Iger recounts as a horrifying experience.
Bob Iger Shares His Opinions On The Media Business In Current Times
Bob Iger shares his future plans for the expansion of the Disney media network. Disney owns a number of channels but it feels that its connection is not smooth enough with any of them and therefore, the content gets on a different route. Bob Iger also says that Disney owns the sports channel and he would like to stay connected with it despite its difference.
The board of directors at Disney had re-recruited Bob Iger extending his term for the next two years. Iger jokingly remarks that he was having a gala vacation of the retirement period but at the same time, his heart always lay at work with Disney despite the challenges in front of him.
The ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes have also contributed to disrupting the media business. Bob Iger, however, agrees with the notions of the protests but he is against the utopian demands of writers and actors.
