Disney CEO Bob Iger is taking a stand on Georgia’s anti-abortion law and states that filming in Georgia “will prove to be challenging and difficult,” according to Fox News.
While promoting an upcoming film, Iger shared his doubts about Disney filming in Georgia if the “heartbeat bill” takes into effect. “I think people who work for us will not want to work for us and will not want to work there,” said Iger. “We will have to heed their wishes in that regard,” Iger continued. The Disney franchise found that filming in Georgia was more of a lucrative opportunity than filming in California.
“I don’t see how it’s practical for us to shoot there,” Iger said of the company’s potential ban of the state. The comments by Iger has created its own controversy and has led to criticism from conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. “This is hypocritical and crazy,” Limbaugh said on his radio show. “Disney is a company founded on programming and facilities for children and the abortion law in Georgia is designed to save and protect children,” he continued.
