Florida congressional candidate and current Disney employee Jose Castillo spoke with Fox & Friends First about the ongoing feud between Governor Ron DeSantis and the Walt Disney Company. The Florida legislature is set to revoke Disney World’s special tax privileges in response to CEO Bob Chapek’s vow to fight against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law. Castillo applauds DeSantis for standing up to the house of Mouse.
“There’s a lot of controversy right now and a lot of people in the media will say Governor DeSantis is going after Disney but it’s actually the other way around. Disney has been going after our laws and going after Governor DeSantis,” Castillo says. “When they came out with the statement saying they’re going to repeal that law, you got to read between the lines. They said their goal was to achieve that —to achieve that goal they have to get rid of Republicans.”
“I applaud the Governor for having the backbone to stand up to corporations like this and to protect children in Florida.”
