Disney CEO responds to criticism for “Woke”: “they don’t even know what it means”

Disney CEO Bob Iger responded to criticism from internet users who claim that the company follows an identity agenda, which is popularly called sealing. 

The “woke” culture is often associated with Marvel Studios productions, but for Iger, these critics don’t even know what they are talking about.

“The term is used pretty liberally, no pun intended in that regard,” Iger said [via Hollywood Reporter]. “I think a lot of people don’t even understand what that really means,” he continued.

He continues: “I think the noise is dying down. I’ve been preaching this for a long time at the company before I left, and since I’ve been back, our number one goal is to entertain”. 

“Our films and series need to be fun, and allow Disney to have a positive impact on the world. If it’s promoting acceptance and understanding of people from all different walks of life, great.”
