The Walt Disney Co. has once again caved to the far left by reversing its earlier decision to reject Democrat commercials on abortion and gun control that were intended to run on Hulu.
Disney said Hulu will now accept advertisements “covering a wide spectrum of policy positions” in a statement sent to multiple news outlets on Wednesay. At the center of the controversy were two commercials paid for by Democrat organizations that Hulu had rejected.
One of the commercials used the Supreme Court’s recent reversal of Roe v. Wade to attack Republicans and urge viewers to vote Democrat in the November midterms. The second ad promoted gun control and blamed GOP leaders for shooting deaths.
The commercials were paid for by three groups — the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and Democratic Governors Association.
Hulu declined to run both ads, citing its policy against the running of commercials that take a “position on a controversial issue of public importance (e.g. social issues).”
