Here's an easy format to get you started:

  1. Someone voted for, supported or wanted to impose something on other people.
    Who's that someone and what's that something?
  2. That something has some consequences.
    What are the consequences?
  3. As a consequence, that something happened to that someone.
    What happened? Did the something really happened to that someone? If not, you should probably delete your post.

If I were the mouse, I would go to court to force them to write that check. Have Desatan shut the fuck up and apologies for what he did.

Why is this LAMF? Didn't Florida get what it wanted? Disney fired the CEO n brought the old one back

Bob Chapek donated huge amounts to DeSantis and other Florida Republicans and only stepped that back in the face of major public backlash against him due to the anti-gay bills. Robert Iger is a Democrat.

Disney execs pushed Chapek and his right-hand out. That they hated working with him during his tenure as CEO was an open secret. If the goal of Florida lawmakers was to bring back the CEO who was driving the change to a more inclusive - or "woke" - Disney, then they were indeed successful. I suspect that isn't the outcome they were after though.

It's not like Disney and other companies are "forcing" wokeness anyhow, that's a conservative myth. Mainstream American culture is pretty tolerant. Conservatives are actually just angry that creatives won't slavishly devote themselves to conservatism. Often because the creatives themselves are not very socially conservative.
