There’s this perception of Disney as this big family-friendly company. They care about the children. They care about being progressive and values and all that other shit. It’s the ultimate lie that they spend inordinate amounts of money to maintain. However, for those who have any amount of perspective and aren’t complete saps, they can see the truth – that all that family-friendly, progressive values shtick is just bullshit. That this company is as ruthless and evil as any other. All they care about is the money people pay them. The fact that people can’t see thru this and even defend them is simply beyond me.
Of course, it helps that they have a huge media empire who does nothing but kiss their ass. And that the media in general is nothing but a whore who will turn whatever tricks will get them clicks. There’s no bottom there. It’s what destroyed Gawker, after all. So we see articles doing nothing but trumpeting how Disney is so great after they use progressive values to get cheap marketing points. Did you hear that Ariel is gonna be played by a black chick in the new live-action (mostly CG) The Little Mermaid movie?! Well that’s so progressive of them. A black mermaid! Never mind that it’s gonna be a cheap cash-grab, like all the rest of their cheap cash-grab movies that have ALL sucked! Without a single exception!
But of course, Disney doesn’t care. They make money like gangbusters on this shit. It pours in.. All from idiots who just want to feel that nostalgia again. Because that’s the culture we live in. Moron who want to idolize movies from their youth. You know, instead of just watching those movies that had heart and talent and were good and not watching the new ones that are “progressive” and boring and phoned-in piles of shit. Because it’s a cartoon, after all. Now we get to see the version for grown-ups. You know, with terrible modern Disney jokes, and performances by ethnically-fitting actors/actresses who couldn’t act their way out of a paper bag. Sure, they shit on the legacy of other people like Robin Williams by having Will Smith phone in every song he does. He sounds so fucking medicated in every single he sings in that shit-tastic Aladdin remake.
Meanwhile, we have Tom Holland who is the actor portraying the current Spider-Man is open to being a gay Spider-Man, saying that the MCU needs more gay characters. News flash, Tommy-boy, ain’t gonna happen. Know why? Because Disney doesn’t wanna lose that precious China cheddar. And guess what, China has a rule – no ghosts and no gays. So unless the gay character can have their gayness edited out of a movie, Disney will never, EVER touch it. I refuse to believe that this guy is so stupid that he isn’t aware of this. But he wins progressive points with the media who does nothing but kiss the ass of that line of thinking. That’s why he said that. Most actors/actresses are aware that Hollywood is nothing but evil corporate monoliths. So yeah.
I talked before about the fact that Disney, as a corporation, is petty and absurd in the extreme. If you have a little cake-decorating business in Guyana where you print sugar images on cakes, and you print Disney characters. even if no one outside the people in your town know who you are, Disney’s lawyers will find you and sue your ass into oblivion. That’s the company who talks about how “family” they are. They will fuck up ANYONE who uses their intellectual properties without their signature notarized on their ass. But it seems that this actually gets worse.
See, there’s a dad whose son died. The kid was a huge Spider-Man fan. Naturally, because this dad wanted his son to be remembered, he wanted to put his favorite superhero on his son’s grave. What a sweet thing to do in a horribly tragic situation. Or it would be, if Disney didn’t swoop in like the evil Nosferatu mother-fuckers that they are and say “nope! Can’t do that, or we will sue your ass!” That’s right, Disney’s lawyers came down from on high and told this guy he can’t do that. Can’t put his son’s favorite superhero on his fucking grave. Because it violates their intellectual property. Wait, I’m sorry. I meant to say that they “want to preserve the magic of the character.” Yeah, that’s something a fucking lawyer wrote.
I’m convinced that after you obtain a certain amount of money, your morals just stop existing. It has to be that way. Otherwise, how can you tell a grieving father that if he puts his son’s favorite superhero on his fucking grave, you’re gonna sue him for copyright infringement. As you might imagine, the media who is busy kissing Disney’s ass ain’t said shit about this. Of course not. They’re too busy yelling at idiots who are mad about Ariel being a black chick or telling Tom Holland how “woke” he is. Because if the media was capable of talking about anything like the fact that Disney is the most petty, pathetic, malicious company in existence and really took a hard look at what scum-fucks run that monkey farm, what a wonderful world it would be. The media doing its job. There’s a funny thought, eh?
Fuck Disney. Fuck them so hard. Avengers: Endgame is where I’m tuning out of the MCU. I do mean to see it, one of these days. Now that that is done, and they are laying the franchise and the best people in it to rest, it’s a good time to just sit back and watch as Disney does to Marvel what they’ve done to Pixar and Star Wars – milk it until the cow runs dry and the creative energy long since departs.
Who are the defenders of this? Who? I wonder if the media who’s busy kissing Disney’s ass is gonna try and spin this. Probably not. There’s no possible way you could make Disney look good in this disgusting, amoral nightmare that they have become. Makes me wonder what Stan Lee would think. A company who is spitting in the face of a grieving father. Lee wanted everyone to love his superheroes. To be able to express that in their own way. Sure, he was a consummate company man, but I’d like to think that even this is a bridge too far.
This company is fucking dead to me. They buy company after company, owning more and more media and turning more and more of it into family-friendly shit. I remember when Miyazaki put out his magnum opus, Princess Mononoke. Disney owned the distribution rights to Studio Ghibli’s work, but this film wasn’t like the others he made. This one was violent in the extreme. So Disney asked if they could make some cuts to the movie, to get rid of the more violent stuff. Miyazaki sent the head of Disney a katana with a note – no cuts. I wonder if ANYONE who is associated with that company would have those kind of balls now. A man can hope.
