Megyn Kelly Sends Warning to Disney: Don’t ‘Work Out Your Wokeism on My Kid'
Responds to leaked video if Disney staffer pushing 'queerness' onto children
Megyn Kelly has issued a warning to Disney after a leaked video emerged of a "woke" staffer admitting to pushing "queerness" onto children.
During her Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast, the host issued a scathing message to Disney about its "wokeism."
She was responding after a leaked video surfaced in which an executive producer at the company admitted to “adding queerness” to children’s programming.
Kelly reacted to the leaked video shared on Twitter that showed Disney executive producer Latoya Raveneau referring to what she described as her “not-at-all-secret gay agenda.”
The host made it clear the famed family company's woke agenda has no place in her home.
The footage was posted on social media by the Manhattan Institute’s Christopher Rufo.
“So Disney and she [Disney Corporate President Karey Burke] have apparently made clear that they are going to be putting as many … LGBTQIA, two-spirit, goes on and on all these folks, in as many Disney movies as possible,” Kelly said.
“That they want these characters to become ubiquitous in the Disney movies.”
“And I think that is totally unnecessary and out of line,” she added.
“I don’t want you to work out your wokeism on my kid! Okay!"
"Do a movie that teaches tolerance, kindness, support for your fellow human beings," Kelly continued.
"Don’t shove two-spirit people, which by the way is not a thing, and pansexual I had to look it up…so you’re bi I guess.
"That’s not a thing. That’s already a thing.
"They already have a letter.”
“I’m sorry, but please,” Kelly continued.
"All these glommers who just want attention… Anyways, it’s good to know.
"We owe a debt of gratitude to Karey Burke for being so explicit about their plans and to certainly Chris Rufo for letting us all know about them.
"Beware. You beware.
"Don’t put a Disney movie on in front of your kid before you fully come to understand what it’s going to be promoting, who’s gonna be starring, and what agenda they’re pushing.”
The former Fox News host closed out her segment by stating that “they’re no longer the Disney of yesterday.”
Raveneau, an executive producer for Disney who has worked on shows such as “The Proud Family,” explained how she was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming attitude and open-mindedness that the company had toward the LGBTQIA+ agenda, particularly as it relates to “adding queerness” to children’s television and movies, according to Rufo.
“Our leadership over there has been so welcoming to like, my like, not-at-all secret gay agenda,” Raveanu said in reference to the team that worked on “The Proud Family.”
“I felt like..maybe it was that way in the past, but I guess, like, something must have happened,” she added, in response to critics who allege the company was not-so-LGBT-friendly.
“They’re turning it around, and then all that momentum that I felt, that sense of ‘I don’t have to be afraid, let’s have these two characters kiss in the background…wherever I could, I was basically adding queerness to the show, if you see anything queer in the show, ‘The Proud Family,’ nobody would stop me and nobody was trying to stop me.”
Burke also said the company needed to add more lead LGBTQIA characters to Disney stories.
"I’m here as a mother of two queer children, actually, one transgendered child and one pansexual child, and also as a leader," Burke said.
"We have many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories and yet we don’t have enough leads, a narrative in which gay characters just — just get to be characters and not have to be about gay stories."
