Bestinau got that-
The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro’s conservative-oriented media company, says it will invest $100 million in children’s content as part of a plan to create an alternative to the “awakened” Walt Disney Company.
“Americans are tired of giving their money to waking companies that hate them,” said Jeremy Boreing, co-CEO of The Daily Wire.
“They are tired of giving their money to wakeful media companies that want to indoctrinate their children with radical race and gender theory.”
“But they want to do more than just cancel. They want alternatives.”
Boreing added, “The Daily Wire gives them those alternatives.”
Boreing told Daily Wire staffers that the company will “invest a minimum of $100 million over the next three years in a series of live-action and animated children’s animations on its streaming platform.”
According to Boreing, Daily Wire subscribers will be able to access the content from spring next year.
Last week, Shapiro said his company planned to take on Disney and other major content distributors who were “held hostage by the vigil because they are cowards.”
“If you want entertainment that’s right for your kids, we’re going to create kids’ content especially here at Daily Wire,” Shapiro said in his podcast on Tuesday.
“So you don’t have to be served by companies that hate your guts and cater to the people who despise your values.”
Disney has been at the center of a political storm in recent weeks over its executives’ muted response to the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill recently signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
The law, which prohibits teachers from discussing LGBTQ topics such as sexual orientation or gender identity with students unless they are in fourth grade or above, has been widely labeled homophobic and transphobic.
Critics of the law say it can isolate young children with LGBTQ parents or the medical condition of gender dysphoria, while supporters say it is designed to protect children and give parents the right to decide when such topics should be discussed.
Disney employees went on strike last week when the company initially refused to denounce the legislation, prompting the company to release a statement Monday saying the bill “should never have been signed into law.”
“Our goal as a company is to have this law repealed by the legislature or overturned by the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working on it,” the statement said, posted on the corporate Twitter of the company. company has been placed. account.
“We are committed to championing the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”
While Disney faced backlash from activists, its subsidiary, Pixar, reinstated a same-sex kiss scene from the upcoming feature film “Lightyear.”
