Remember when the “Woke Disney vs. Gov. Ron DeSantis” battle was raging in Florida? That seems to now have given way to “Woke Disney vs. woke backlash” and we sure hope Disney is enjoying their new friends on the Left. Disney General Entertainment is also learning a hard lesson with the new company they’ve been keeping: Even dad jokes are a big no-no!

Being “progressive” means never having to say… anything… or else you’re in trouble!
“My four-year-old son has been learning Spanish all year and he still can’t say the word ‘please.’ Which I think is poor for four.”
In today’s Stay Connected newsletter, there was an inappropriate joke. It was never our intention to marginalize a language or a young person’s learning skills, and we apologize to anyone offended. We strive to maintain a sense of belonging and uphold our belief in diversity, equity and inclusion within the company. We will do better.
Just imagine the emergency meeting that took place…
Several real-life people held an emergency meeting around a conference room table and collectively agreed they must immediately apologize for such an egregious indecency as telling this dad joke. Bizarro World. https://t.co/mZbeUE0MRw

And they “apology” was probably first run by several high priced lawyers to make sure no further offense was included.
I keep thinking who internally approves this kind of thing? Unbelievable

“We never meant to marginalize a language with a bilingual pun, but we are gonna keep calling Latinos latinx no matter how many times they ask us to stop.” https://t.co/AeF39aB6XD

reminds me of the opening credits in Monte Pythons Search for the Holy Grail.

LOL! Yes, Disney should have just put out this video about the “dad joke”:
