Elon Musk offers to pay for people who want to sue Disney

Elon Musk at Viva Technology (Vivatech) 2023

Elon Musk is offering to fund legal battles for those who claim discrimination against Disney.

The Tesla billionaire wrote on X: “If you were discriminated against by Disney or its subsidiaries (ABC, ESPN, Marvel, etc), just reply to this post to receive legal support.”

Recently, actress Gina Carano sued Disney and Lucasfilm for her dismissal from "The Mandalorian," which was backed by Musk.

The offer marks a major move in Musk's public disagreement with Disney and its CEO, Bob Iger.

The dispute began several months ago when Disney pulled advertising from X following Musk's controversial tweets.

Iger said at the time: “We just felt that the association with that position, and with Elon Musk, and X, was not necessarily a positive one for us.”

Later, Musk openly criticized Disney, drawing attention to its company's spending decisions and advocating for leadership changes

Musk accused Disney, among other firms, of attempting to coerce him by suspending their ad campaigns.

He has also supported Nelson Peltz, an activist shareholder vying for a seat on Disney's board, aiming to influence the company's management and strategy.

Musk said Carano’s termination was over controversial social media posts.

It illustrates his broader campaign against what he perceives as censorship and bullying by Disney. 

This stance has stirred debate over the implications for brands advertising on X.

Musk's actions could deter companies from associating with the platform.
