    I am going to go with these were beyond controversial. And as someone who worked in talent for 15+ years – this was in her contract as it always is. She took her platform and went to far. There is no one to blame but herself.

      Yeah, I’m not defending her tweet, she did it to herself but Disney has some hypocrisy issues in regards to recent hires and controversial statements (and tweets)
