Yay, Chapek’s gone. Iger will be better. He will be better, right? Hello?
BR’ER BANK, CA — Only days after declaring that the struggling Disney Company would be facing staff reductions, a dejected Bob “Bob” Chapek was seen leaving its headquarters with a box of personal belongings (we’re assuming photos with Mickey and his favorite pieces of hate mail).
Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation) claims the firing of Chapek as CEO was just a bit of bad luck.
“He was trying to make the layoffs fair,” Disney (no relation) told Uncle Walt’s Insider. “To keep from playing favorites, he put the names of all [estimated over 150,000] Disney employees on ping pong balls in one of those big lottery ball cages. His just happened to be the first one selected.”
We at Uncle Walt’s anticipate having Chapek at our doorstep begging for a job again at any moment.
Are there any other Bobs who should be given a shot as CEO? Let us know in the comments below!
