In -- -- -- has -- -- federal discrimination lawsuit against the company because she wasn't allowed to Wear religious head scarf to work.
I don't understand why is it hard for me to work there and get accepted.
As a woman who as Muslim woman and a man can't even Americans.
Who just decided to let her head scarf and have a simple I don't.
Ten and seven point but I see right -- she's obviously upset.
And -- see -- point ACLU came out to defend her but I don't understand why they wouldn't come out to defend Disney.
For the right to have a policy that sets standards and the uniform code.
And they also told her that if she want to work in a place where if they did you didn't have to Wear the uniform they would find or something like that.
But so I think this -- Byron ACLU I wouldn't.
-- American corporations to the rights for them to be able to set a policy a -- did enact.
You know -- not well because he ACLU that they're they're obviously gonna going to and defend.
The woman looked Disney did try and make amends -- funded job for its eight patent called themselves cast members people -- in front of the public.
They're out in the in the parks one other call cast -- so they -- Constantly -- an important distinction absolutely so for that for them to have probably Disney now.
Maybe there's a case to be made for someone who's not going to be in front of the public about the Disney made that distinction for anyone who's not from the -- And -- now I look I totally agree I can see why this -- upset -- mean if you're if you're Jewish and you're wearing the comic it did that probably the same rules apply just because of the strict rules the Disney has -- fiercely protective of the magic kingdom.
And they're -- so this isn't about discrimination at all and I think they have gone out of their way to find some type of work for this woman.
But if she doesn't like it and I'm sure she's very hard working -- go find work somewhere else that's -- -- be more.
-- embracing of her of her religion.
My enemy if there's one place -- celebrates -- diversity and had a hole in its -- -- hello the first right everybody dresses that go on it's a small world there's a good spot for her act now.
Thank you this -- one who thought that.
I -- doesn't work without -- Disney that moments here for -- But I mean she's got a point but the problem is Disney to -- their image in their their corporation a -- settle -- they'll do something they don't want an investigation by the Leander in the Department of Justice right Eric Holder coming down crashing the ears right off the Mickey's -- Right in the.
Well exactly I mean look we are country decided a long long time ago we are gonna fight the civil war and we believe in human rights and we believe in certain rights for individuals.
But let's clog our courts with all of these crazy lawsuits back and forth back and forth Disney's going to make an effort I think parity have they also visiting -- this can't read it they also I have a policy against that of you can't have ceased -- scenes Arafat's tattoos they despair strict about it.
Is that as their right it is their right right the surprise as that I -- -- quite nail polish government funding is not a public school.
I mean listen they erected to have a dress code and up.
Grooming code and and let's talk about another story it is getting a lot of attention to a point Houston cancer as -- -- -- -- -- I was on manages them for being drunk so you -- yet.
Disney World -- land and land.
Now and and I don't -- the Edwards threw.
To clear tonight coup for you something else -- at that Elian yes and not just amusement parks Bob but other places who opened it and happiness place in the got -- -- -- trial about 200000 kids there are.
Are a lot I can't get the its fifth pick it up in another millionaire and -- around.
I can't back Bob that's it.
Not all the moms -- is -- and we for an -- nevertheless it's a place for everyone it's inclusive OK Disney will be getting passes to -- that your not -- today is an atheist billboard on that caused -- -- and I hate to even status at.
The story a useless a savior.
Bass a sadistic side and talk about Mormon bigotry can take a look at this here.
-- in this is a prominent atheist group that's using this is not -- the democratic.
To take aim at presidential candidates religion they're targeting Mormon is and they're targeting christianity and this -- in -- Charlotte.
North Carolina -- -- the back -- on.
I just so you know I mean that they Agassi gets right to -- these billboards that are that probably more offenses than anything we've talked about today except maybe you but I said -- -- but I you know I just seems to me that people get Ingrid you know they take take -- events like this -- People who were believers had to look at this every day it's not easy to do and and if -- up to me and maybe well I'll I'll I'll probably down there to take you saw that and let -- little.
I'll ask roundtable are very quickly.
It could take -- -- -- christianity attack taking a shot at somewhere around 80% of the population and -- not a great thing to do especially trying to get some votes North Carolina.
A plot I'll -- I can think -- was to these people have nothing better to do or -- Anything better to spend their money on.
That a billboard like this -- wanna mention.
Now I guess if they complain that people aren't tolerant of them they're actually -- -- being so rude it's another religion and your when -- like it's not a great way to get both North Carolina it's also not a great way to get people to join your group and what you gonna say.
