What Was Bob Chapek Thinking?
Disney’s still-newish C.E.O. Bob Chapek has had a hell of a week—first coming out as neutral on Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” legislation before issuing a too-late mea culpa condemning the bill. Chapek has had a difficult time filling the very large shoes of his predecessor, Bob Iger. But even if he wants to push Disney closer to the center, it seems like he may be more comfortable with the number-crunching part of the job than the public figure aspect.
