Far-left Hollywood is finally under scrutiny.
And more attention is being paid to content directed toward young children.
Now one child actor revealed the horrible thing he witnessed at Disney.
Disney has come under intense examination since the company marshaled resources against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
The entertainment behemoth attempted to stop DeSantis from signing the Parental Rights in Education bill into law to no avail.
Since then, leaked videos from a company virtual town hall proved that Disney infuses sexuality and “queerness” into its programming.

Now actor Cole Sprouse is pointing the finger at Disney for how it treats young girls.
Sprouse, 30, who broke into show business at an early age and resumed his acting career in adulthood, was asked a broad question about child stars getting ruined by the industry.
The New York Times queried, “People like to talk about former child stars in this dichotomy of either they spiral out of control or, somehow, ‘come out OK.’ Do you think it’s possible for anyone to actually come through that experience unscathed?”
Sprouse’s answer revealed something disturbing about behavior at Disney.
He replied, “My brother and I used to get quite a bit of, ‘Oh, you made it out! Oh, you’re unscathed!’ No. The young women on the channel we were on [Disney Channel] were so heavily sexualized from such an earlier age than my brother and I that there’s absolutely no way that we could compare our experiences. And every single person going through that trauma has a unique experience. When we talk about child stars going nuts, what we’re not actually talking about is how fame is a trauma. So I’m violently defensive against people who mock some of the young women who were on the channel when I was younger because I don’t feel like it adequately comprehends the humanity of that experience and what it takes to recover.
Yet Disney executives are the ones wagging their fingers at the rest of society and denouncing the use of the term “groomer.”
Tinseltown does not have a leg to stand on regarding this issue.
Documentary filmmaker Amy Berg won an Academy Award for her film Deliver Us from Evil, an exposé about sexual abuse in the Catholic church, but her film An Open Secret, a film about sexual abuse in Hollywood, received no such accolades.
Berg later distanced herself from the movie after completion, which could be considered career preservation.
Needless to say, Disney’s finger-wagging about DeSantis is ridiculously misplaced.
