• Parents, Fans, Dollars Bailing on Disney …And It’s Pretty Clear Why for Those Paying Attention

    Surge Summary: As the Disney Corporation continues to sexualize children – while denying it is doing so – and break its word to parents and children by purveying filth, viewers and dollars are abandoning the company – as they should.

    Disney keeps taking financial hits and rightfully so, says the Parents Television and Media Council – as the company continues to enable sexualized and exploitative content to flourish.

    While Disney Chief Bob Iger recently denied that the company “sexualized children,” the company has allowed programming to include sexual themes into child-targeted programming.

    Disney-owned Hulu airs shows like PEN15, which shows a young female character performing a sex act on herself, and A Teacher, during which a teacher and her minor student have an illicit, and illegal, sexual relationship that is romanticized, and its FX and FXX cable channels have aired Little Demon about a female teen that finds out her dad is the antichrist. Disney has broken promises to families by adding R-rated content to the Disney+ streaming platform.
