Disney CEO reportedly calling multiple Republican leaders ahead of expected GOP midterm blowout
Company has come under fire for woke policies.
Disney's chief executive is reportedly calling multiple congressional Republicans for political talks ahead of an expected GOP blowout over the midterm elections next month.
Company CEO Bob Chapek "has been having private phone calls this year with House Republican leaders," CNBC reported on Wednesday, among them House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise, who would become House majority leader if projections of Republican victories play out.
A Disney spokesman told CNBC that Disney "speaks to lawmakers from both sides of the aisle," while a spokeswoman for Scalise "did not return repeated requests for comment."
Disney has come under fire from conservatives and some Republicans in recent months for its left-wing stance on various political and cultural matters, including its opposition this year to a Florida law that prohibits teachers from discussing sexuality with very young students.
