Christmas came early to Disney fans (and stockholders!). Last night a bombshell announcement came out of the Walt Disney Company: Bob Chapek is out, and Bob Iger is back in as CEO. And as you would expect, the Disney fandom rejoiced with their own form of love language. Here are the most savage Chapek v Iger Disney CEO memes.
Bob Chapek, Disney CEO (February 2020 to November 2022)
From the get-go, the Disney fandom was a little worried about Bob Chapek taking over the parks as CEO.
And over his tenure, there were plenty of missteps along the way.
Chapek was seen as an unemotional numbers cruncher who made a once vibrant company culture into “just another business.”
And that was not sitting well with the whole Disney community: from the guests and fans to the cast members who worked for him.
Laments of “the magic is gone” echoed across social media conversations for the past 2 years.
The final straw for shareholders apparently was the disastrous November earnings call, which lead to opening communications with former beloved CEO Bob Iger.
Last night, the news was announced. This morning, the memes are flying.
Here are our favorite (and most savage!) Chapek v Iger Disney CEO Memes to celebrate your Thanksgiving.

We wish both Bobs well, truly.
But we gotta admit, we aren’t sad to see Bob Chapek leave. And we’re pretty sure you are too!
