The Walt Disney Company’s chief corporate affairs officer is stepping away after three months of fighting against Florida’s Parent Rights in Education Act.
Geoff Morrell reportedly said that after discussing the situation with CEO Bob Chapek, he realized he was not the “right fit” for the public relations position.
"After three months in this new role, it has become clear to me that for a number of reasons it is not the right fit," Morrell reportedly wrote to his Disney colleagues on Friday. "After talking this over with Bob, I have decided to leave the company to pursue other opportunities."

Kristina Schake is set to take Morrell’s place. She was hired at the beginning of April to help quell the backlash that Disney faced from conservatives for being too “woke.”
Schake has served as a special assistant to former President Barack Obama and worked as communications director to then-first lady Michelle Obama.
