No lady (or individual) ought to ever need to sacrifice her/their security simply to carry out at work day-after-day. Unwanted hugs, touching, and kissing aren’t in your contract. Inappropriate conduct ought to NOT be normalized in as we speak’s local weather. #LoseLasseter

Proud to see Disney rise up towards hate right now, however disillusioned that on the animation aspect, we’re nonetheless at the hours of darkness as as to if or not a recognized abuser shall be allowed to return to the helm of the corporate. #LoseLasseter

We’re a collaborative business. I hope the corporate considers the loss – between womens voices silenced internally, & the ladies who take a look at an abuser in cost & take their IP to different studios. Women make up over 25% of union staff – Lasseter is only one man. #LoseLasseter

Suffering financially, Disney, so that you’re contemplating bringing again somebody poisonous to staff & harmful in your model? I see you. Maybe it is time for a gifted artistic who’s from an underrepresented background? #LoseLasseter https://t.co/FSlcqi2Uhf

Apparently she and #Lasseter each pitched Brave & Cars 2 in Europe to some shopper product peeps. Cars 2 was met with silence whereas Brave received a standing ovation. What occurred after they returned Monday morning? Did she get a “great job Brenda?” No. She acquired fired.

Lasseter can’t come again. He’s a monster. Disney must be defending it’s staff, however all they’ve finished thus far is let him take an extended journey to Italy. No one is just too gifted to get replaced, particularly Mr. Cars.
Cut him unfastened, Disney!#LoseLasseterhttps://t.co/4q0Ee50FtF

Having been a very long time fan of Pixar, I firmly consider that John Lasseter should not return to work on the studio.
The harassment that he dedicated in the direction of feminine staff have been (and are) fireable offenses. He ought to’ve recognized higher then and now. #LoseLasseter
