Hollywood has been pressuring actors, actresses, producers, and studios to boycott Georgia over their pro-life legislation.
And the last company you’d expect to join the boycott just made it clear where they stand.
Disney just issued a threat to boycott Georgia over their pro-life legislation that will send parents into shock.
So far, Alyssa Milano’s protests and “boycotts” have not done anything to move the needle against the Heartbeat Law.
A handful of celebrities joined the boycott, but no large studios jumped in.
That is, until Walt Disney Studios dropped this bombshell on everyone.
Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, just told the world that Disney may no longer film in Georgia if the Heartbeat Law goes into effect.
A slow-moving Hollywood boycott of Georgia could pack a real punch after Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger said the entertainment giant may not film there if a new anti-abortion bill goes into effect as planned on Jan. 1.
The chief executive, who presides over the Disney, Fox, Marvel Pixar and Star Wars franchises to name a few, told Reuters it would be “very difficult” to work in the state, which has made abortion illegal after six weeks.
“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,” said Iger in an interview with the wire service. “I don’t see how it’s practical for us to continue to shoot there” if the law takes effect. Iger was responding to questions on Wednesday ahead of the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland — star attraction: the Millennium Falcon.
No one expected Disney studios to support the Abortion Lobby or join this boycott.
Disney is recognized as a family friendly company that upholds certain morals.
But apparently they are willing to make an exception to appease the media and make a few obnoxious celebrities happy.
Disney’s position on the law in Georgia doesn’t make any sense.
The studio films all across the world, including in countries where abortion is outright banned.
Fortunately, Georgia’s Governor and General Assembly have not budged.
Short of being derailed by some pro-abortion judge, the pro-life law will go into effect on January 1, 2020 despite Hollywood’s temper tantrums.
