The Disney-sympathetic piece, written by senior culture reporter Alex Abad-Santos, described how the entertainment company has found itself in an unappealing “conflict” with Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., despite its best efforts to remain inoffensive over the years.
Abad-Santos wrote on Friday, “Conflict means taking sides. Conflict means making enemies. Conflict means personally defining what’s right and what’s wrong. None of those things are appealing to a company that’s ridden high-gloss inoffensiveness to become the richest and most powerful entertainment company in the world.”
Doubling down on that point, the reporter added, “Todavía, despite its immense financial power and commitment to deflecting confrontation, Disney has found itself stuck in a rather complicated one.”
