"Disney is so much bigger, means so much more to the American people than that little punk can ever hope to mean."

In a Twitter thread posted on Friday, Disney heiress Abigail Disney went on an online tirade blasting those pushing back against Disney and other woke businesses that have come out in opposition to Florida's anti-grooming bill.

Disney is the granddaughter of Roy O. Disney, who co-founded The Walt Disney Company alongside famed Walt Disney. According to Business Insider, the wealthy Disney heiress has an eye-popping net worth of $120 million.

In the lengthy Twitter thread, Disney wrote that "the right wing has finally run amok and is coming to devour the hand that feeds it. Business."

"For my part I am delighted," she continued. "It is the business world that has been, either by act or omission, feeding the opportunist right wing to distract [u]s with culture war nonsense while they rifle through the till and empty everyone's pockets."

Disney continued on to claim that "this 'anti-woke' right wing nonsense is unsupported by a large majority of Americans."

In the case of Disney and Florida's anti-grooming bill, officially called the "Parents Rights in Education" bill, current Walt Disney Company employee Jose Castillo has claimed that a "silent majority" of the company's employees actually support the legislation.

In regards to the nation, a survey conducted by the Public Opinion Strategies group found that a majority of Americans support the bill's text, which states that schools statewide will not teach children in kindergarten through third grade about sexual orientation or gender identity in an age-inappropriate manner.

The survey said that 61 percent of voters agreed with the legislation, while 26 percent disagreed with it.

Referencing the so-called minority of those supporting the legislation and anti-woke actions, Disney wrote that "You need two things to rule with a minority."

"First, you need to be constantly looking for fresh meat to throw to the minions, to keep them riled up all the time.  That works until the herd thins (remember Scar in Lion King?).  So now they've come for American Businesses," she wrote.

"But the second thing you need to rule with a minority is money, lots of it.  You need the very deep pockets to fund you, yes, and if they don't, you need them to sit quietly along the sidelines, out of your way," Disney continued. "Until now, business has been content to do just that."

She said that businesses have either "compartmentalized like sociopaths" or remained silent "when it came to politicians who were willing to fight for their outrageous and multi-decade campaign to stack the deck against the American People brought us this whole raft of Trump wanna-be's now casting about for new and more insidious ways to tear the country apart."

Claiming that now the right-wing and the "business agenda" may now be parting ways, "perhaps we might see the powerful lobbies of the various industries wondering which party was truly interested in supporting their interests."

"Perhaps we will see lobbies lose faith in the devil's partnership they until now have relied so heavily upon to look after their subsidies, their tax breaks, their flouting of law and regulation.  Perhaps the right wing has finally bitten the hand that has been feeding it superfoods these last few decades."

Disney continued: "The only thing that will work for business now f they want to emerge in one piece, is to stand tall for authenticity, generosity, joy and decency. These things are [k]ryptonite for the right wing agenda. So the cure for this isn't hard.  And it also just so happens to be the heart and soul of the Disney brand."

Concluding her Twitter thread, Disney took a jab at journalist Christopher Rufo, who has exposed a number of companies' woke teachings and policies.

"Right now, when it matters most of all, they will stand for those values with every fiber of their being.  Yeah guys like Rufo can try, but Disney is so much bigger, means so much more to the American people than that little punk can ever hope to mean," she said.

In response to the thread of tweets, Rufo issued his own response on Twitter, bashing Disney for being a privileged person that "cosplays as a 'class traitor.'"

"I met a lot of these people when I was an undergraduate at Georgetown. They are the most entitled, narcissistic, status-obsessed people imaginable. They adopt identities and moral causes to project their problems onto the world and 'solve' them with their inherited wealth," Rufo wrote, referring to Disney.

He said that "The best way to understand people like Abigail Disney is that, for them, playing progressive politics is a very expensive form of therapy."
