“Our company @WaltDisneyCo apologizes to the Emerson Elementary School PTA,” Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, tweeted yesterday. “I will personally donate to their fund raising initiative.”
Emerson Elementary School was fined $250 by licensing firm Movie Licensing for “illegally screening” the film at a “parent’s night out” fundraiser last year. Not very “Disney” like! But, I’m sure the outcome will be “happily ever after”! Thanks Bob, for doing the right thing.
