Shortly after, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday accused the company of being friendly with communist China.

The governor’s action stunned Republicans and Democrats.

Disney is a multibillion dollar economic driver for the state.

Disney has also contributed huge amounts of money to Florida’s political parties and politicians, and has wielded incredible influence on the state’s government.
