Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday condemned a Disney executive for her resistance to his Parental Rights in Education law - while docking their ships in the Dominican Republic - a country that prohibits same-sex marriage and condones discrimination against gay people.

“You’ve got to wonder why is the hill to die on to have transgenderism injected into kindergarten classrooms, or woke gender ideology injected into second grade classrooms. Why is that the hill to die on?” he asked in a Tuesday night interview with FOX News’ Tucker Carlson.

“Meanwhile, if we’d passed a bill that prohibited talking about the abuse of Uyghurs in China, Disney would’ve supported that legislation. They won’t say a word about that,” the Republican governor continued, receiving a giggle from Carlson.

“So it’s just an odd manifestation of their corporate values that they actually do Disney Cruises, Tucker, to the nation of Dominica, which actually criminalizes homosexuality,” DeSantis said, citing laws in the Dominican Republic that ban gay marriage and make anti-gay discrimination legal.

“So they’re fine doing that and lining their pockets, they’re fine lining their pockets from the CCP, and all the atrocities going on there,” he added, referring to the Chinese Communist Party, which the company thanked in the credits of its live-action Mulan reboot.

“But it’s those kindergarteners in Florida that they really want to have transgenderism as part of their core curriculum in school.”

Disney has cracked down on its rejection to DeSantis’ so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill in recent weeks, following backlash from customers and employees for being hesitant to oppose the bill, which prohibits the teaching of gender ideology in kindergarten through third grade, when it was first passed.

On Monday, one of the company’s Presidents is now vowing to include more gay-lead stories.

General Entertainment President Karey Burke vowed in a company-wide Zoom call that the company would do more to become more inclusive.

Disney has also modified its standard greeting at its Lake Buena Vista theme park from welcoming “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls” to “dreamers of all ages.”

But even some of the most stubborn fans are having trouble with the new woke changes, with some Disney World regulars saying they would revoke their season passes. Disney stock prices have dropped 4 percent over the past month.

DeSantis’ remarks come after Burke said in her Zoom call that the issue hit close to home for her, “as the mother of two queer children, actually, one transgender child and one pansexual child, and also as a leader.”

Burke also defended 20th Century Fox as “the home of really incredible, groundbreaking LGBTQIA stories over the years” but said more needed to be done - and introduced Disney’s ‘Reimagine Tomorrow’ campaign to represent more minority groups.
