Former UFC Fighter Sells Disney Stock Amid 'Woke' LGTBQIA+ Push

Disney's full-on sellout for the LGTBQIA+ agenda is enough to make people shudder.

In addition to openly opposing Florida House Bill 1557, Disney now wants to infuse children's entertainment with openly gay agendas and characters, and has reportedly nixed "gendered" terms like "boy" and "girl" for the more "inclusive" "individuals."

But while the company has enjoyed praise from rabid leftists, apparently, Disney's antics was enough for one athlete to never want to financially support the company ever again.

Former UFC fighter and 5-time champion Jake Shields announced on Twitter that he said goodbye to his Disney stocks, and that he will do whatever he can to make sure he never sends another dime their way as long as the company keeps this nonsense up.

Read about Disney and immediately sold 100% of my Disney stock and will try not to support them in any way in the future

Just in case you think that Shields' decision is a bit of an overreaction, just take a look at what executive producer Latoya Raveneau said her plans are for Disney children's entertainment going forward.

SCOOP: I've obtained video from inside Disney's all-hands meeting about the Florida parental rights bill, in which executive producer Latoya Raveneau says her team has implemented a "not-at-all-secret gay agenda" and is regularly "adding queerness" to children's programming.

If that doesn't make your skin crawl, nothing will.

Shields is setting a good precedent for what other Americans should do. Yes, Disney probably knew that they would alienate a contingent of their fanbase by adopting the progressive left's religion as their own. Sure, they're a multi-billion dollar franchise that won't be shaken to the core by one man selling his stock. But if any customer base is going to tell any corporation - not just Disney - that they are fed up with that business' actions, you have to hit them where it hurts: their wallets.
