Following the release of the first episode, Disney Star Wars critic Script Trooper shared his reaction writing on Twitter, “Just finished Episode 1 of Tales of the Jedi. Thank you Dave Jebroni, for yet another lore breaking nonsensical pile of manure.”

In response to these criticisms at least four accounts replied with the same exact message.

YouTuber and Disney Star Wars critic KenobiStig replied to Script Trooper accusing Lucasfilm and Disney of using bots to defend the show.

He wrote, “Disney using bots to defend their s**t shows on twitter. Busted.”

Interestingly, former Disney CEO Bob Iger recently admitted that he believed a significant portion of Twitter’s user base was not real and is indeed made up of bots when Disney was looking to acquire Twitter.

During an interview at the 2022 Code Conference, Iger stated, “Interestingly enough because I read the news these days about it, we did look very carefully at all of the Twitter users, I guess they’re called users, and we, at that point estimated, with some of Twitter’s help that a substantial portion, not a majority, were not real.”

When asked how many, he replied, “I don’t remember the number, but we discounted the value heavily.”

It’s also not farfetched to believe that Disney would be employing these bots to protect their brands and try to influence people to watch their shows, buy their products, and more.

In August, Emily Sayegh, the CEO of Nitrety, wrote in Forbes, “Bots are making people a lot of money, a lot of power, and a lot of influence. The perception of influence is very powerful. The influence of fake accounts and fake campaigns can make a man president or keep another from reaching that office. They can ruin reputations of people, groups, companies, and spread lies. These influences can hype up (or hype down) crypto markets. They created, or at the very least influenced, the phenomenon of meme stocks. Fortunes can be made or lost on the power of bots.”

He goes on to note, “Even worse, and somewhat amazingly, you can buy all of this bot influence for the right price. Oh yes, bot campaigns can be self-built with the right investment, or you can find all the pieces in the seedy underground of the web.”

The idea that Disney, one of the most powerful corporations on the planet that owns ABC News, ESPN, and others isn’t engaging in bot campaigns is hard to believe especially given the company has made it clear they are completely immoral and indeed are in the business of grooming people.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek made that goal abundantly clear back in February when he sent out a company-wide email explaining why the company wasn’t openly fighting against a Florida bill that prevented public school teachers and administrators from instructing kindergartners through third grade on gender identity and sexual orientation.

He told Disney employees, “I do not want anyone to mistake a lack of a statement for a lack of support. We all share the same goal of a more tolerant, respectful world. Where we may differ is in the tactics to get there.”

Chapek continued, “And because this struggle is much bigger than any one bill in any one state, I believe the best way for our company to bring about lasting change is through the inspiring content we produce, the welcoming culture we create, and the diverse community organizations we support.”

“There’s a reason content is at the top of this list,” he stated. “For nearly a century, our company’s stories have opened minds, inspired dreams, shown the world both as it is and how we wish it could be, and now more than ever before, represent the incredible diversity of our society.”

“We are telling important stories, raising voices, and I believe, changing hearts and minds,” he declared.

Of note, Chapek is specifically saying that he wants to groom children from kindergarten through third grade in gender identity and sexual orientation in public schools, and that even if states like Florida ban it, they will do it through their content instead.

If they want to groom your kids, it leads me to believe that they will also want to groom you as well. In fact, Chapek made it clear recently he wants adults to continue to watch their programming after they’ve put their kids to bed.

He said, “I always say that one, that our fans and our audiences put their kids to bed at night after watching Pinocchio, or Dumbo, or Little Mermaid, they’re probably not going to tune into another animated movie. They want something for them.”

Chapek is making it abundantly clear that he and Disney will indeed be making content to groom adults as well.

So, to reiterate, if they are willing to publicly state they want to groom not only children, but adults via their content, it’s not hard to believe that they would also employ bots on Twitter to protect and promote that content.
