In a statement released to Twitter, the Walt Disney Company shared on behalf of Disney CEO Bob Chapek (who has no official public Twitter presence) a statement about the “inexcusable assault” on the United States Capitol on Wednesday.
“Yesterday was a sad and tragic day for our country, one unlike any other in our history. What we saw was an egregious and inexcusable assault on America’s most revered institution and our democracy. Thankfully, the democratic process that we hold dear ultimately prevailed. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we come together as one nation – united by our shared values, including decency, kindness, and respect for others. We should seize this opportunity, and move ahead with optimism and hope for a better, brighter future for all of America.”
— Bob Chapek, CEO, The Walt Disney Company
