The sign outside the entrance to Florida’s Disney World has been a lightning rod for protests of late. This past weekend was no exception. Video surfaced online both Saturday and Sunday of protesters marching outside the entrance to the park holding Nazi flags, one seemingly dressed in a German WWII uniform.
The original video was posted on TikTok and has garnered over 3 million views as of Sunday.
“We are sickened to our stomachs seeing Nazi flags flown at Disney World in Orlando, FL a few hours ago,” tweeted non-partisan organization Stop Antisemitism.
Many social media users have taken to Twitter to express their outrage and criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for not issuing any condemnation of the incident.
Last month, DeSantis signed a bill that strips Disney World of its status as an “independent special district,” multiple media sources confirmed. Before then, Disney operated as an “independent government around its Orlando-area theme parks,” according to a CNN report.
DeSantis said that bill was punishment for Disney standing in opposition to the Florida governor’s “Don’t Say Gay” law.
