America First Legal Foundation Demands Follow-up Civil Rights Investigation of Disney Based on Recent Video Evidence

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Legal (AFL) renewed its request that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) open a civil rights investigation of Disney regarding new allegations of racial discrimination in employment. In February, AFL filed a federal civil rights complaint against The Walt Disney Company and its subsidiaries (Disney) for violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by engaging in illegal race, sex, and national origin discrimination.

Now, new videos published by the O’Keefe Media Group (OMG) reportedly show senior Disney Executives candidly discussing the company’s illegal race-based hiring practices. One executive was recorded (describing hiring for a position in business affairs) purportedly saying, “Certainly, there have been times where, you know, there’s no way we’re hiring a white male … There are times when [that’s] spoken.”

The same executive also appears to have said, “I’ve been up for jobs internally against people who have less experience than me, and you know, I haven’t gotten them… In one or two cases, you know, I was told explicitly that it did [have to do with race].”

Given that Disney apparently disregarded the letter AFL sent to their board in February, and appears to have continued its pattern of race discrimination, AFL calls on the EEOC once again to investigate these new allegations.

Statement from Gene Hamilton, America First Legal Executive Director:

“We have asked the EEOC, once again, to investigate Disney’s employment practices. Disney was once an iconic American brand–truly, the epitome of the American dream in the business world in the Twentieth Century. Yet it appears to have gone far astray from what made it great–particularly with the failure of its senior leadership to ensure that employment decisions are made based on merit and not immutable characteristics. We are once again presenting the EEOC with evidence of discrimination at Disney and asking for it to take corrective action to ensure equal opportunity for all Americans,” said Gene Hamilton.
