Top 20 Celebrity Reactions to the Disney/Fox Deal


Top 20 Celebrity Reactions to the Disney/Fox Deal

If you hadn’t heard already, Disney Corporation “merged” (or purchased) Fox this week after months of backroom dealing. The deal will have wide-ranging implications for the landscape and future of both how media is created and distributed as Disney is quickly expanding it’s lead as the world’s largest media conglomerate. While the first thing that popped into people’s minds was the fact that Marvel Studios now has access to essentially all of its characters (with Spider-Man still being on loan from Sony), there is a lot more to it than that as Disney now owns Fox’s television networks as well (which means shows like The Simpsons and Family Guy are part of the same company as Mickey Mouse!). It’s really one of the largest bits of news in the history of Hollywood and because of that, celebrities that are directly impacted (and that weren’t) were quick to comment on the deal on social media. We’ve compiled some of the better responses here for your reading pleasure, so let’s hop right into it!
