During an appearance on “The View,” Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) faced boos from the studio audience after praising Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) and his recent clashes with Disney over children’s indoctrination.
Scott commended DeSantis for taking a stand against what he believed to be the inappropriate influence on young children. However, his statement triggered widespread jeers and loud boos from the audience.
Host Whoopi Goldberg promptly intervened, urging the crowd not to boo and reminding them of the show’s inclusive atmosphere. “We accept, we don’t have to believe everything people say, but you cannot boo people here, please,” Goldberg firmly stated.
Both DeSantis and Scott, who are Republican presidential primary candidates, have criticized Disney for what they perceive as a “woke” agenda that introduces progressive ideology to children.
When asked about potential government intervention in corporate policies regarding social issues, Scott suggested that individuals who disagree with a company’s actions should express their dissatisfaction by choosing not to support that business.
The incident on “The View” highlighted the ongoing debates surrounding the influence of corporations and ideological agendas on society, with differing perspectives on government intervention and personal consumer choices.
