When will Disney stop doing business with China who has active human rights abuses and legit concentration camps? This is laughable

Pausing ? Really...

They probably aren’t getting paid for anything in Russia so pausing it. It is terrible what Russia is doing to Ukraine and the unfortunate Ukrainian people who are suffering. Russia (the government leaders) should be punished for war crimes.

Pausing is such a woke word in this instance. Why are they not simply saying we are STOPPING and commercial sales and activities in Russia……hmmm
