“Disney CEO Bob Chapek was quick to throw around words like ‘respect’ and ‘inclusion’ with shareholders, but he couldn’t explain how two actors on the same show said similar things but were treated substantially differently,” David Almasi commented after the Disney shareholder meeting. “It’s because he can’t.
