What did Ben Shapiro say about Disneyland?
Shapiro spoke on his show — called “The Ben Shapiro Show” — about Georiga’s new voting law, which will impose strict limits in the state for voters, including “new identification requirements for mail-in ballots and makes it a crime for third-party groups to hand out food and water to voters standing in line, among other measures,” according to The Washington Post.
Shapiro criticized claims that people of color in Georgia faced long lines at the polls, saying it wasn’t an example of true voter suppression, according to The Hill.
- “Voter suppression doesn’t involve long lines any more than long lines at Disneyland are ride suppression,” he said.
- “You know what voter suppression is?” he added. “Voter suppression is where you don’t get to vote.”

Reactions to Ben Shapiro’s Disneyland comments
The Wrap reports that there were a number of reactions to Shapiro’s statement. Some pointed out that Disney sells a FastPass, which allows people to skip lines. This suggests that those who don’t get the FastPass are being “ride suppressed.” Other reactions made fun of Shapiro’s height.
