Disney targeted by QAnon believers using meme stock tactics | app

For weeks, followers of the fringe conspiracy group QAnon have been spreading theories and lies about the Walt Disney Co. online, stoking a frenzy of negative sentiment against one of America’s best-known companies.

Posts on Facebook, Twitter and several other platforms falsely claimed that the company had lost $636 million in theme park reservations and that 350,000 people had canceled their subscriptions to the company’s Disney+ streaming service. Some even linked to a fake article stating that Disney CEO Bob Chapek was arrested for human trafficking and child pornography.
