TX judge invites Disney to pack up and move to Fort Bend amid culture war joust with Ron DeSantis

As Disney and Governor Ron DeSantis continue to clash in the state of Florida, a Texas judge has invited Walt Disney World to fold up its 25,000-acre tent and move to Fort Bend.

In a letter dated April 21, addressed to Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek, and shared on Twitter, Fort Bend County Judge KP George said the people in his county are “ready to welcome the Disney family.”

“I write to you today to extend an invitation to welcome and invite the Walt Disney Company to consider Fort Bend County as a welcoming and diverse place to do business,” George wrote.

Fort Bend, George claims, has “lots of wide open and affordable land, while also being strategically located for the most efficient distribution of goods domestically and internationally including the best access to both inland and water ports in Texas.”

“While you, your company, employees, and diverse fans face authoritarian, anti-business, and culture war attacks from extremists in Florida,” says George, “we in Fort Bend are more than ready to welcome the Disney family with thousands of good paying jobs and billions of dollars of investments.”

George tells Chapek that Amazon, Texas Instrument, Comcast, and Gallery Furniture have already invested in his community and adds that “more major employers are on the way.”

“With a strong focus on economic development, we encourage small and large business growth through a business-friendly climate; we make a difference in our children’s lives everyday through youth empowerment initiatives, and aim to continue improving the quality of life through new, fresh, and innovative ideas,” George said.

Apparently, George missed the roasting many journalists were receiving on Twitter for suggesting that Disney “simply” move in response to the Florida legislature’s vote to strip the company of its special self-governing status.

The judge was quickly schooled.

“You’re a judge?” asked the much-adored Catturd, with a string of laughing emojis.

DeSantis spokesperson Christina Pushaw responded to George’s letter with, “I thought you had to be intelligent to be a judge.”

“Sure,” wrote another user. “Just leave a multi billion set up and move everything to Ft Bend county.”

“I know who you are and exactly what you’re about,” the user told George. “Total PR opportunist.”


Tensions between DeSantis and Disney began in response to the governor’s parental rights legislation, which prohibits teachers from discussing gender fluidity and sexual identities to third-graders and younger. Dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by the left, the issue received national attention, with progressive politicians, woke Disney employees, and Hollywood celebrities claiming the passage of such a law would lead to children’s deaths and demanding that Chapek do more publicly to denounce DeSantis and support LGBTQ+ issues.

After Chapek appeared to cave to the mob, Florida legislators introduced the redistricting bill, which ended a 50-year-old agreement between Disney and the state of Florida and requires the company to be treated the same as every other company doing business in Florida.
