A row has erupted over Disney appearing to challenge the law, with one commenter calling Disney “child carers” and “paedophiles”.

“They have now openly admitted that they have a not-so-secret agenda with your children.
“It’s the death of Disney.”

A statement from the company pledging to challenge the law said: ‘Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down by the courts.
“We are committed to defending the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”
Ms Owens’ tweet received mixed reactions on Twitter.
One user, Sulie, said: “Each year, thousands of children have fun at Disney without a hitch.
“Families won’t stop visiting the world’s largest amusement park just because you need something to throw away this week.”

“This boycott will go as well as the boycott of Starbucks Holiday cups lol.”
Still, some agreed with Ms Owens.

“Disney has gone too far, companies must remain neutral on political issues.”
