Joey Bada $$ has a bone to choose from with Mickey and Co. – He claims that the House of the Mouse would not let his autistic cousin enter the park without a mask… which he calls a fault.
The rapper posted a video on Saturday showing three Disney World employees in front of a camera who appear to have been dispatched to deal with a situation. As Joey recounts and gets the names and positions of each worker… what is going on becomes clearer.
He says he came to DW with his family – about 30 people – to celebrate his daughter’s birthday. The point is, one of his relatives is a child with autism … who Joey says doesn’t understand the concept of wearing a mask and finds it overwhelming.
Joey adds, “These guys totally ruined my family’s trip. We came here over 30 years for my daughter’s birthday and they fired my little cousin, they can’t even enjoy this experience anymore ”… Disney manages on social networks.
We checked out Disney’s official policy on wearing masks in their open parks – which, at this point in the US, is only found in Florida – and other than kids under 2 … it doesn’t. there is no escape from the rule other than eat / drink, which is standard.
So basically everyone has to wear one, period. There is no consideration for people with special needs or other underlying conditions … which seems to have reached a critical point here. We reached out to Joey’s rep as well as Disney for further comment … no word back at this time.
