“WHAT THE ACTUAL F***?????” tweeted Disney, the granddaughter of Walt Disney’s brother, Roy Disney.
Abigail Disney, a fierce critic of outsized executive compensation — particularly at Disney — slammed the company for failing to take care of its low-paid workers when bosses have been “collecting egregious bonuses for years.”
“What kind of person is comfortable with this???,” Disney tweeted, asking Chapek and Iger to reconsider their pay and return some of their money to the company.
“Disney faces a rough couple of years, to be sure,” she wrote. “But that does not constitute permission to continue pillaging and rampaging by management.”
Chapek took a 50% pay cut while Iger said he would forgo all of his salary during the pandemic. The company didn’t immediately return CNN Business’ request for comment.
“I’m just a citizen who cares and I think that makes me free to say what I believe,” she said Tuesday. “But I am an heir. And I do carry this name with me everywhere. And I have a conscience which makes it very difficult for me to sit by when I see abuses taking place with that name attached to them.”
