Radio host Glenn Beck took to airwaves with harsh words for the Walt Disney Company, saying its recent decision to light its signature Cinderella Castle at Disney World in rainbow colors was hardly a family-friendly move.
“Disney is supposed to be serving all families, but have you noticed that Friday, they lit the castle up with rainbow colors? That’s quite the statement,” Beck said, to co-host Stu Burguiere.
Beck, who has previously shied away from boycotting businesses, also wondered if that was perhaps the path to now take against Disney, Mediaite reported.
“Why did they do that?” he asked, of the rainbow lighting. “Because they know you’re sheep. They know you’re not going to say ‘no’ to them, they know the other side will boycott them. … The left knows boycotts work and so, the other side is terrified.”
Beck then brought up the point that Disney also recently agreed to produce a movie about Charles Darwin, the man who created the theory of evolution.
“They’re doing a new movie, kind of an Indiana Jones swashbuckling spirit of a five-year voyage,” he said, during the segment. “Wow, this sounds like a swashbuckling thriller that we are going to have to take our families to see. … Thank you, Disney! That’s fantastic.”
