Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis isn’t necessarily ready to let bygones be bygones when it comes to Disney’s attack on his Parental Rights in Education law.
The Republican governor said it was the Walt Disney Co. that started the feud after returning CEO Robert Iger extended an olive branch, reportedly telling employees at a Monday town hall that he wanted to “quiet things down” and was “sorry to see us dragged into that battle.”
“We didn’t drag them in, Tucker. They went in on their own, and not only opposed the bill, they threatened to get it repealed,” Mr. DeSantis told Fox News host Tucker Carlson in a Tuesday night interview.
The bill, derided by foes as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, prohibits classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3.
“These are parents’ rights, important policies in our state that are very popular. And so they brought this on themselves,” the governor said.
