Hollywood has shown its true colors in the past few days, and is threatening to pull all film and television production out of the state of Georgia due to the anti-abortion heartbeat bill that was passed. Netflix was the first major corporation to threaten to pull out of the state, and now others are talking about joining in that effort, including The Walt Disney Company and NBCUniversal. Both companies operate theme parks and resorts, and their respective operations in Orlando, Florida are among the most visited every summer. It could be very bad for, not only the movie studio, but the theme parks as well with new themed areas based on the Star Wars franchise opening at Disneyland and Disney World this summer.
In recent years, Georgia has become something of a second home for Hollywood as the state has opened itself up to filmmakers. But ever since the state took a stand to defend the lives of the unborn, the liberal elites on the other side of the country have demanded Georgia bend to their will or face a boycott. The CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News not only hyped the boycott Thursday, but they also touted that their parent companies might join in.
