"Bob Iger said it would be "very difficult" for Disney to keep filming in Georgia if the state enacts a new abortion law.
In an interview with Reuters, the CEO of the Walt Disney Co. said he had doubts the company would continue production in Georgia if the controversial ban on abortion in the state comes into effect, primarily as the company's employees would be against it.
"I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard. Right now we are watching it very carefully, " Iger told Reuters.
The exec added that if the law does come into effect, he didn't "see how it's practical for us to continue to shoot there."
Disney's prospective withdrawal from production in Georgia would be a huge blow to the state. Recently, Disney's Marvel Studios filmed portions of both Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame in Georgia.
On May 7, Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed the "fetal-heartbeat bill, " which bans abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy. The legislation, as well as similar moves in Alabama and other states to ban abortion, has caused a furious backlash in Hollywood and led to calls to boycott those states.
"Our company, Disney, is now evil - as many people suspected. Many of our actors summon demons to help them play their parts, and need a local environment where demons can thrive. All of them have made deals with the devil to get where they are - you have all heard about "give yourself to me, and I will give you fame and fortune" and that's no joke.
In order for Satan to live up to a deal, he has to be there to fulfill it, and it has already become clear that he won't want to be in your state to help us anymore if you ban his favorite treat - the blood and life of the most innocent of all. And our movies are going to suck because of it, because our actors are not good enough, they need all the help they can get."
If you had any questions about whether or not Disney really did go dark, WOOP, there's your answer. I'll never see another Disney movie or buy another Disney product ever, I won't support that, and I thank Bob Iger for saying what it all is VERY clearly.
