ORLANDO, FLORIDA - The man who disrupted the ‘Hall of Presidents’ attraction at Walt Disney World by shouting “lock him up” at the President Trump robot has this to say to his haters: check your privilege.
Jay Malsky, also known as Earnest Gay Thoughts on Twitter, tells The Wrap that those upset about his outburst should “consider getting mad about the thousands of children being taken away from their parents because of Trump’s racist immigration policies, or the families of the hundreds of trans Americans murdered each year by transphobic and homophobic people, or the negative impacts of the tax bill on poor and middle-income Americans.”
He goes on to say that his only regret about the incident is that “Trump hasn’t blocked me on Twitter yet. And that Cher hasn’t retweeted me yet."
Malsky was escorted out of the attraction by Disney castmembers who he calls “professional and courteous.”
A tweet by the actor and comedian on December 20 seems to indicate that the protest was planned.
“Will be in Disney next week and def going to the #HallOfPresidents on my last day in the park,” the tweet reads. “Taking suggestions on what to throw at Trump.”
