Conservative critics and upset parents are slamming Disney, this time for allowing a male employee with a mustache to dress like a drag queen in a frilly dress and heavy makeup.
NY Post (h/t Marvin W) A viral video — which has racked up nearly 7 million viewson TikTok — shows the mustachioed “Fairy Godmother’s Apprentice” welcoming a young girl at Disneyland’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Anaheim, California. “So, my name is Nick, I am one of the Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices,” said the employee, who’s seen wearing blue and purple eyeshadow to match their uniform dress.
“A man in drag is not only bizarre and inappropriate but it takes guests out of the ‘show’ – the illusion is broken. Nothing matters but the agenda and your 4 yo is a pawn they are happy to mindflay,” said conservative writer Peachy Keenan.
Dave Rubin, the host of “The Rubin Report,” joked that the employee would be hired to work for the Biden administration by the end of the day. “What’s particularly interesting about this is how intentional it is. This is a dude with a mustache in a dress. Not a ‘trans’ person. Think how many real girls want that job at Disney and they gave it to him for a reason…,” he added.
Brandon Morse, an editor at Red State, tweeted: “May you never suffer the same destruction of your legacy that poor Walt has.” “This is disgusting and wrong,” tweeted Jenna Ellis, a lawyer known for working under former President Donald Trump.
In an effort to encourage inclusivity and benefit cast members who don’t necessarily identify as female, Disney ditched the “Fairy Godmother in Training” title in favor of “Fair Godmother’s Apprentices.”
“This way, cast members that might not identify as female can still be part of the process to dress up & style the children without having to refer to themselves as a female Disney character,” the corporation said at the time.
It was reported earlier this week, during a Q2 earnings meeting for the Walt Disney Company, that the House of Mouse streaming service had lost roughly FOUR million subscribers in the past few months. Although the company gave insight into India’s market, playing a significant factor in the loss, this still led consumers who are uneducated on the matter to make speculations on why Disney+ is presumably tanking.
It’s no secret that political groups will boycott specific brands whenever they support a cause that goes against their belief. With “Go Woke, Go Broke” being the battle cry for a new generation of conservatives, many companies have been affected by their recent campaigns that support the LGBTQ community.
