Disney, we tried to warn you – like, a million times. You went after DeSantis for protecting children against pedophilia, and then you decided to corrupt the little ones by tainting their tiny minds with same-sex kiss scenes. I think it’s safe to say that Walt Disney is rolling in his grave as we speak.
Now, over the course of just a year, Disney stock has tanked nearly 50 percent as their politically-influenced productions continue to turn off audiences and garner angry fan reactions.
According to Bounding Into Comics, the new Ms. Marvel show on Disney+ has been released with the lowest viewership numbers the streaming service has seen yet. A total of 775,000 households tuned in to watch the new Marvel outing in its first five days, but that’s dangerously low compared to other shows such as Moon Knight (1.8 million), Hawkeye (1.5 million), Loki (2.5 million), and WandaVision (1.6 million).
This isn’t to mention the flops that were the live-action “Mulan” and “Eternals” movies, the former of which was greeted with mass controversy since it literally thanks the organization tied to a concentration camp for Uyghur Muslims. Fan reactions to Kenobi have been mixed, but many (including yours truly) consider it to be a massive insult to the fans.
It also didn’t help that Disney/Star Wars led a campaign that called its own fans racist before the release of Kenobi, and the disastrous same-sex kiss scene they refused to remove from Lightyear, costing the company nearly $40 million on opening weekend, didn’t do them any favors either.
If Disney wants to salvage what little reputation it has left, the execs running the Mouse House might want to start reading the room better and stop listening to its employees who aren’t the ones raising our children.
