DEIsney Executive: The People Who Say Our Movie and TV Shows are "Bad" Just Don't Want to Admit They're Afraid of Seeing Powerful Women

For years and years, YouTube critics of woke entertainment have suspected that -- and provided some evidence suggesting that -- Disney executives themselves were behind the thousand hit-pieces written by the shill entertainment media trashing fans as "racist," "sexist," and "homophobic," and claiming that every single piece of woke DEIney entertainment is brilliant, and only a "tiny minority" of toxic white supremacists disagreed.

A new quote from an anonymous DEIsney executive, provided to entertainment reporter Matt Belloni, shows that, at the very least, DEIsney executives agree with the media shills branding any critics of DEIsney as Nazis.

All of this started last Thursday when Belloni wrote up a survey noting that DEIsney had fallen from one of the country's most broadly esteemed companies, to one of its most mistrusted and despised.

Bob Iger Has a Brand Problem, But Does It Matter?

An exclusive survey reveals that Americans (and especially Republicans) are twice as likely to think of Disney unfavorably as other media companies, even if that doesn't necessarily mean they won't see Pixar, Star Wars, or other Mouse House movies in theaters.

The rest is paywalled, but the survey found DEIsney's popularity to be among the lowest of all major corporations:


But how big is this problem? And does it actually prevent people from going to see Disney movies? That was the impetus behind a study called "Left and Right: Are Political Divisions Impacting the Box Office?" that was prepared for Puck by The Quorum, which has done other branding research for us. This project surveyed 2,000 people over five days in January to test the conventional wisdom that Republican-leaning audiences feel alienated from Hollywood in general and Disney in particular.
Respondents were presented with 29 companies in various industries (Pepsi, Kraft, Toyota), including 13 media companies (all the major Hollywood studios and a few new entrants like Apple and Amazon, which bring their own general brand profile), and asked if they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of those companies. (They could also answer "no opinion" or "not familiar.")

The results were a bit unexpected. >b?All 29 companies have high favorability ratings (that's consistent with most opinion surveys of major companies), and people actually carry pretty positive feelings about the major studios. But Disney clearly scores the lowest, with 21 percent unfavorable. No other entertainment company had an unfavorable rating above 11 percent, meaning Disney is nearly twice as disliked as any other Hollywood entity we included. (Hulu, which is owned by Disney, scored especially well at only 8 percent unfavorable, indicating the problem is the Disney brand, not any of its sub-brands necessarily.)

Woke DEIsney does not allow its media shills to step out of line and report that their movies are bad and that they're an extremely unpopular company, so a DEIsney executive DM'd Belloni to tell him that when people say they don't like DEIsney movies, they're just saying that they want to see women in "regressive" roles, but are too afraid to say that.

The executive informed Belloni, "Everyone says 'It's the movies, stupid,' which is an easy thing for people to say. More appealing movies are a great way to jump the political issues. But more and more, our audience (or the segment of the audience that has been politicized) equate the perceived messaging in a film as a quality issue."

This executive continued, "They won't say they find female empowerment distasteful in The Marvels or Star Wars [the latest trilogy starring Daisy Ridley], but they will say they don't like those movies because they are 'bad.'"

The executive concluded, "So 'make better movies' becomes code for 'make movies that conform to regressive gender stereotypes or put men front and center in the narrative.' Which is what you're seeing now, and what Bob [Iger]'s pivot is about right now."

As a YouTuber pointed out, no one criticizing DEIsney is afraid to say "we hate woke girlbosses and are sick of seeing men pushed into subordinate roles as cringing servants to the girlboss." It's front-and-center of all critiques: Here's Critical Drinker today announcing that the era of the "girlboss" is over. He points out the problem isn't just that female characters are unbelievably competent and flawless, but that every male character is portrayed as incompetent and venal.

No one is "afraid to say" this. It is said by nearly every critic. They also go on to say that not only are these movies toxic and alienating in their messaging, but they're also objectively bad in all other categories having nothing to do with woke messaging or spiteful feminist politics.

But there you go: A DEIsney executive announcing our movies are great -- It's just the audience that's wrong.

Meanwhile, former DEIsney CFO Jay Rasulo, who is waging a proxy fight to get a seat on DEIsney's board at the upcoming shareholder meeting, says there is something fundamentally broken at the center of DEIsney's "creative" process.

In a video encouraging Disney investors to vote for him and Nelson Peltz to become members of The Walt Disney Company's Board of Directors Rasulo said, "I think something of the most important things to focus on at The Walt Disney Company are: first, and foremost creative content. Something's broken in the creation of creative content."

He continued, "I think from the very start back in the '30s when Walt [Disney] created the first feature animated film it started the Disney flywheel. In fact, Walt invented the Disney flywheel. That you could take something that pleased people in a movie theater, make it into consumer products, ultimately put it into Disneyland as rides and attractions."

"Animation is so key to The Walt Disney Company, so key to the success and the running of the flywheel that to imagine that The Walt Disney Company has lost its iconic status in animation today is almost unbelievable and personally it really affects me because this is how we created success when I was at the company," he concluded.

Is he low-key referencing Film Threat's exposé of the DEI rot at the heart of DEIsney's animation division, in which white men are deliberately given shit assignments to force them to quit to make room for a bunch of highly unqualified female and "diverse" Tumblr doodlers? Make up your own mind but: yes, he is.

Finally, Bob Iger's last shareholder meeting statement, in which he buffaloed investors with a lot of bullshit, was effective. DEIsney's share price rose from something like $92 to $110.

But it might not have just been Bob Iger's unbelievable bullshit that caused the rise -- there is a persuasive case that an army of bots has been assembled to constantly talk up how attractive DEIsney's stock is, and how, allegedly, it is exceeding analyst expectations.

I should point out that even if this is in fact a bot army designed to artificially pump DEIsney's stock price, it isn't necessarily DEIsney behind it -- there are a lot of "Pixie Dusters," DEIsney fanatics, and gay/trans activists that are fighting hard to keep DEIsney as a hard-left propaganda mill. So this could be an effort pushed by the people we already know have an army of bots to attack Gina Carano, for example.

EVERY

It's the key word.

The big budget ecosystem is so uniform in its approach to male and female characters that there's absolutely no room for interpretation. Girls good. Boys dumb and usually evil. And even when girls are the antagonists, they have good reason because of men.

EVERYTHING made at a certain budget now is like this. If it were just one franchise or just the occasional film, that'd be one thing. But everything, in particular existing franchises that were never like this, has become this.

So you view movies - and especially "appealing movies" as a mechanism to advance political ideology and messaging, but then take exception to the fact that people "perceive" that messaging and reject it as crap?

Even if the point he's trying to make here is correct - that the movies are good and it's merely discontent with the messaging - his argument is still completely insane.

No, here's what I'll say. You can get it right from the horse's mouth.

1. "Female empowerment" is a stupid and distasteful concept. In the west in particular, any more "female empowerment" will reduce men to a slave class. This is a false premise and your company has implemented it both poorly and to exclusion.
2. A political message is a poor nucleus for a good story. Everything gets subordinated to the core premise, so if your premise is political then the subordinate parts will necessarily suffer as a result of being stuffed into that frame (unless you're making a political product, anyway).
3. "Female empowerment" - even if it were a good premise, which it isn't - is not achieved by immunizing your empowered female characters from obligations, responsibility, consequences or growth. You do not create "empowered" characters, you create entitled characters with no motivations to learn.

70 This isn't even all about grooming and girlbosses. If that were the case then Hulu would be one of the most hated brands since they cater exclusively to people who can't figure out how to insert tab A in slot B or whether they even have a tab or slot.

It is about the fact that networks are masquerading as things they are not and destroying brands that other people like.

No one cared that women were badass in Terminator, Alien, and Porky's. But now you don't have women who are badass, you just have scolds who would rather lecture the villian to death than kill them.

Never heard any of the dialogue from that show but the NPC language is strikingly obvious because these people literally don't know anything else.

Kids were watching a cartoon (think it was The Ghost and Molly McGee) and the ghost (voiced by the same dude who played Master Shake) sang a song about Jewish kids feeling included at Christmas. And the girl literally thanked him after for "being inclusive." Wasn't necessary but the language program on their brains was tripped. Must include.

102 *sigh*

The fundamentals of storytelling are so basic that it's hard to understand why a company like Disney has so much trouble with them.

First, have a good idea for a plot. Most plots are recycled, but you can always add a new twist.

Then add characters that have a mix of good and bad with them. Those who tend towards "good" become the heroes or protagonists. Those who tend towards "evil" become the villains or antagonists.

Establish a narrative arc for the most important characters that demonstrates growth or development throughout the plot. By the end of the story, the characters should have an important realization about themselves that leads to a satisfactory resolution.

The End.

It's not hard.

Most of the characters were unlikeable, including minor ones. They were't even unlikeable in interesting ways, or ways that moved the plot forward. And the plot was, well, unexceptional.

Having given it three tries since its only really good season, they should probably hang it up.

144 Well, if this Disney “executive” is correct that this is all just toxic male incels bitching, then why aren’t women going to see Disney’s woke dogshit either? Movies like The Marvels and Madame Web did so putrescently poorly that even women were staying far away lest they get infected by the stench.

Seems to me that if even women are staying away from movies aimed at women and featuring stronk empowered girlbosses, then the problem is with the quality of the movie.

I'm pretty sure that at all USAAF airbases in England in 1943 - the period so far in Masters of the Air - there were about zero black personnel. Perhaps a few working in mess halls, perhaps a few loading bombs onto bomb trailers in the bomb dumps. That's it. Blacks stationed in England in '43 and for the rest of the war were mostly assigned to truck transportation units driving bombs, ammo, fuel, food, and everything else from ports, fuel distribution points, and railway stops to ground unit and air unit bases. And they'd be in the Army Service Forces, not in the Army Air Forces.

No. The cylinder gap prevents them from working. The Russian Nagant revolver is only widely available revolver that would work because it uses a unique cartridge that seals the chamber and the whole cylinder moves forward as well to eliminate the cylinder gap.

Disney's problem is that consumer's feel betrayed by their product.

Their product was fun, kid-safe, family-safe entertainment in a traditional American mode.

Their product now is hectoring, woke, teh ghey, trannie propaganda meant to damage kid's psyche's and repel families.

231 I don't care what anyone says, I love the Mitch Rapp character.

I've tried to find similar books but the main guy is always wasting my time weighing (after the fact) whether he should have killed the POS or not. I don't want philosophizing or amateur soul-searching. Find the bad guy and shoot him in the face. And I don't want any whining about it.

As an aside, I was happy when they killed off Anna, Rapp's wife. She was a pain in the ass. I don't care how green her eyes were. I was sick of the "journalist needs to know everything" shit and when she died it was an improvement to the storyline.

Does anyone know a good book series similar to Rapp without any woke bullshit (I can't tell you how many books I didn't finish when they introduced the gay character)?

More appealing movies are a great way to jump the political issues. But more and more, our audience (or the segment of the audience that has been politicized) equate the perceived messaging in a film as a quality issue.

=================

Where to BEGIN?

Like, we COULD try making more appealing movies, that people actually want to see, and that reflect a premium on quality, not messaging. That would take care of all the political blah-blah.

But it's these darned viewers who *perceive* some sort of message who say it compromises quality. That's our problem!

The answer is to make every single movie completely Anglo, Protestant and hetero. Heros, villains and in between. No chicks, either, except as set-dressings, way in the background. Hopefully with enough depth of field that you barely notice them (except for when sandwiches are really necessary for the plot).
