Disney Heiress Trashes USA: American Dream Is a 'Nightmare' for Most
Multimillionaire Abigail Disney inherited her fortune from her famous family
The multimillionaire heiress of the Disney family fortune has trashed the United States of America, claiming that one of the foundations that built this great nation - the American Dream - is a "nightmare" for most people.
Wealthy elite Abigail Disney inherited her fortune from her famous family.
The Walt Disney Company built an empire by selling the public an idealized version of Main Street, USA.
However, in a new documentary, the left-wing heiress is now trashing the same ideal that inspires many hard-working Americans.
The documentary, "The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales," premiered this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
It examines the pay gap of Disney employees — focusing on wage earners, or “cast members,” at Disneyland, some of whom say they are unable to afford sufficient food on their pay.
Their plight stands in contrast to the lavish compensation packages received by Disney’s top executives.
Last year, Disney's "woke" CEO Bob Chapek saw his compensation more than double to $32.5 million from the $14.2 million he made a year earlier.
The documentary, which Abigail Disney directed with Kathleen Hughes, explores “America’s dysfunctional and unequal economy and asks why the American dream has worked for the wealthy, yet is a nightmare for people born with less,” the movie’s official site states.
Abigail Disney is the granddaughter of Disney co-founder Roy O. Disney.
She recently urged the company to embrace more leftist social positions, like its opposition to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law.
"We need corporations to step up on principle, regardless of what the resulting backlash might look like,” she wrote in an op-ed for The Washington Post.
"The only option for corporate leaders is to stand tall for authenticity, generosity, joy, and decency.
"These things are kryptonite for the right-wing agenda.
"Fortunately, they are also the heart and soul of the Disney brand.”
