Walt Disney World Under Fire for Denying Access to Rapper’s Autistic Cousin Without Face Mask
Since Walt Disney World reopened its theme parks last summer, there have been many incidents regarding guests not wearing the required face masks, including most recently a man being arrested for spitting on a Cast Member. Now rapper Joey Bada$$ (Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott) has posted a video on Instagram of Cast Members at the Transportation and Ticket Center who would not allow his family entry because his autistic cousin wasn’t wearing a mask.
“You guys just turned away an autistic child from Disney World,” Scott said to the Cast Members in the Instagram video. “Nothing to say? Maybe one day when you have kids you’ll understand.”
He named the Cast Members involved, along with their positions. He tagged several Disney accounts in his caption, where he also wrote, “Never coming back to Disney again. . . . The child thinks the mask is suffocating, the child also has no idea why it is even a requirement. Not to mention that, kids under 2, doesn’t have to wear a mask. These guys have completely ruined my family’s trip. We came out here 30+ for my daughters bday and they turned my lil cousin away, can’t even enjoy this experience anymore.”
