The Walt Disney Company Refuses To Make Monetary Contributions Towards Lawmakers Who Voted Against Electoral College Certification

Last updated:

In a statement today, The Walt Disney Company has taken an even stronger stand against the events that took place at the U.S. Capitol last week, stating the company will make no monetary contributions to lawmakers that rejected the Electoral College Certification which occurred on January 6th of this year.

This comes after Disney CEO Bob Chapek released a statement against the attack on the Capitol earlier this week.

Read the full statement below:

In the statement, the attack on the Capitol was deemed an “appalling siege”.

Disney is not the only corporation who is taking a political stand, as other large companies such as Coca-Cola and Walmart are making similar sentiments.

The announcement was made on Twitter by national political reporter Elena Schneider.

It is yet to be known what types of effects these recent political statements made by large corporations will have.

Hypocrites. Did they make contributions to the Democratic politicians that challenged the 2016 election results?

Disney really shouldn’t be giving money to the GOP, for the following reasons: Members of the GOP are what’s keeping WDW open. GOP oppositions are the ones keeping Disneyland closed. Disney is losing so much money now that they even have to cut out the DME and EMH, they don’t have a dime left to give to anyone. In the future, when Disney comes to some money again, please do not blow it on politicians. Get the DME back, that’s the most important thing! And after that, I also want to get back the following: the Minnievans. EMH. free hotel… Read more »

Mary, you should really educate yourself before posting. Gov. Newsome, a wildly liberal Democrat, is what is keeping Disneyland closed, not the GOP. In addition, WDW is located in Orange County, FL, a largely Democrat-run county. That is the same juristiction that allowed WDW to open last summer. Get your facts straight before posting and saying virtually anything to slam the GOP.

However, I do agree with you on Disney bribing politicians and lining the pockets of Execs with bonuses amid the largest reduction in force in the company’s history.

Such political stands will not make people hate Disney less, now that Disney axed the DME.

Shame on Disney for being so political. Objections have been made throughout our elections 2001, 2005, 2017 are just the more recent ones. I really hope Disney is reviewing their donation books to ensure they did not nor do they continue to donate to the ones that objected in those years.

Billion dollar company does the right thing in the public view. How much did they save on taxes in 2016,17,18,19?

Have not been to WDW in 15 yrs. Was planning a trip this fall. Cancelling! Corporations should not be political! They should be representing ALL people. Never heard any outcry during spring rioting.

If Disney has to cut experiences, hault or slow down construction, and layoff employees to turn a profit they should not be giving contributions to politicians.

I kind of doubt these wokey woke companies ever bothered to make contributions to non-woke heathens to begin with.

I agree with you. This is nothing but blatant political posturing. Politics and business should not mix.

Maybe Disney should focus on how their budget is tanking and not give $$ to any political person or party.

My only question, did you stop donating to Democrats when, they refused to certify the election in the past. I bet you didn’t

But they had no problem hosting Pence or any of the horrible GOP senators at the Grand Floridian a few years back. They need to apologize and vow never again to support any candidate on either side. Of course, that will never happen.

One small step for a company. One giant leap for the US.

Thank you, Disney.

The lawmakers did nothing wrong. They were doing exactly what the Constitution allowed. It would be different if the lawmakers assisted in the riot, but they didn’t.

This company couldn’t be more politically and socially biased if they tried. I bet they continue to contribute to bureaucratic liberal Democrats and the CCP. But the hell with the GOP, right?!?!

How about companies stop ALL political contributions! It is NOT your job to play politics, Disney. I’m cancelling my Disney+ subscription and will never return to their parks. I opt to vote with my wallet. Disgusting.
