DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - A recent poll shows over two-thirds of Americans are "less likely" to do business with Disney because of the company's recent pro-LGBT advocacy.

The Trafalgar Group found 68.2% of Disney's hypersexualized content would make Americans less likely to do business with Disney, while a mere 9.4% said it would make them "more likely."

The poll prompted over 1,000 likely voters by stating, "News reports reveal Disney is focusing on creating content to expose young children to sexual ideas. Does this make you more or less likely to do business with Disney?"

Kerfuffle Over FL Legislation

In response to Florida's recently passed Parental Rights in Education bill, Disney has expressed intentions to increase pro-LGBT material in its children's content.

Disney is focusing on creating content to expose young children to sexual ideas.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek promised the company would "be a better ally for the LGBTQ+ community" in response to employee complaints about Disney's "financial involvement with legislators" behind what they disingenuously dubbed the "Don't Say Gay" bill.

The Florida measure does not mention the word "gay"; rather, it prohibits teachers from having classroom discussions about gender identity or sexual orientation with children in kindergarten through third grade.

LGBT activist groups are suing Florida governor Ron DeSantis to prevent the law's implementation.

Admitted 'Gay Agenda'

Just last week, executive producer at Disney Television, Latoya Raveneau, was exposed for admitting to promoting a gay agenda. A journalist leaked a video of Raveneau in which she said, "Our leadership over there has been so welcoming to my, like, not-at-all-secret gay agenda."

She went on, "I was just, wherever I could, just basically adding queerness. ... No one would stop me and no one was trying to stop me."

Families Will Seek 'Alternatives'

But voters have other thoughts. Trafalgar, partnering with Convention of States Action, surveyed 1,079 likely general election voters during the first week of April. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 2.99%.

A whopping 85.3% of Republicans, compared to 48.2% Democrats, responded that they were less likely to do business with Disney following the company's sexualized content for children.

Moreover, 77% of Republicans and 58% of Democrats agreed they would support "family friendly alternatives" to Disney.

News Report: Following Florida's Lead
 

As Church Militant reported earlier, Americans have responded fiercely to Disney's woke posturing. Another Disney executive recently touted the company's plan to promote gender-transitioning procedures for employees and their underage children, prompting a crowd of protestors to congregate in front of Disney's headquarters in Burbank, California chanting, "Boycott Disney!"

The #BoycottDisney hashtag went viral across Twitter.

The protests are continuing outside Disneyland in California. On Wednesday, a throng of activists near the park chanted "Grooming is wrong" while holding signs that read "Imagination, not indoctrination," "Protect our children," and "Boycott Disney."

There has also been notable pushback on social media. The #BoycottDisney hashtag went viral across Twitter, and media personalities slammed the company for its wokeness.
