The Supervising Director for Marvel Studios upcoming sequel series to X-Men: The Animated Series, X-Men ’97, Jake Castorena makes it very clear that he does not like President Donald Trump and his supporters.
Castorena’s pinned tweet on his official Twitter profile appears to be a picture of him riding a skateboard in a parking garage.
The image appears to feature superimposed writing that reads, “F*** Trump! …He’s still ya boy? F*** you too.”
Not only does Castorena express disdain for President Donald Trump and his millions of supporters, but he’s also a Black Lives Matter and Defund the Police supporter. He also uses the phrase “All Cops Are Bastards” (ACAB).
Back in June 2020, Castorena posted to Instagram an image that reads, “I will not be posting any art this week. I will not take focus off the issue at hand. It’s not over. We must keep focused and moving forward.”
He captioned the photo writing, “Racism doesn’t take a day off. #blacklivesmatter #nojusticenopeace.”
A day later on Twitter he shared an image that shows a police officer kneeling on a man’s neck on the American flag. The image reads, “The United States of America.”

Castorena captioned the photo writing, “ARE WE GREAT YET? #defundthepolice #blacklivesmatter #georgefloyd #acab
In case you forgot, Black Lives Matter made it abundantly clear on their website that one of their main goals was “to disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
Their website also claimed they “do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”
One of the group’s co-founders, Patrisse Cullors, also described herself and the organization as “trained Marxists.”
Speaking on behalf of Black Lives Matter, Cullors also said, “The demand of defunding law enforcement becomes a central demand … And, with that demand, it’s not just about taking away money from the police, it’s about reinvesting those dollars into black communities.”
On Twitter, the group’s Los Angeles branch tweeted, “We don’t want to hug the police. We don’t want to kneel with the police. We don’t want to meet with the police. WE WANT TO DEFUND THE POLICE. #DefundThePolice #BlackLivesMatter.”
They also tweeted, “#Defund and #Dismantle”
It definitely appears that Disney has hired an activist who supports a racist organization.
But this really shouldn’t be a surprise as Disney CEO Bob Chapek made it perfectly clear what Disney’s values were as he lied to the entire world about the firing of Gina Carano.
When asked by a shareholder if the organization blacklists conservatives at the The Walt Disney Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, Chapek said, “I don’t really see Disney as characterizing itself as left leaning or right leaning. Yet, instead standing for values. Values that are universal. Values of respect. Values of decency. Values of integrity. And values of inclusion.”
He continued, “And we seek to have not only how we operate, but the content that we make reflective of the rich diversity of the world we live. And I think that’s a world we all should live in, in harmony and peace.”
The Walt Disney Company also outed itself as a racist organization when it implemented its critical race theory infused program “Reimagine Tomorrow.”
The company was outed by journalist Christopher F. Rufo back in May that their Reimagine Tomorrow program contained a number of modules attempting to teach employees how to be racist while calling it anti-racist.
In the documents, Disney claimed, “The murders of Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Tony McDade, Nina Pop, Rayshard Brooks, Adame Traore, and countless others are part of a long history of systemic racism and transphobia.”
They also instructed “white and non-Black people” to “examine and work through feelings of guilt, shame and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed.”
The documents also instruct them to “not question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience.”
Instead “white and non-Black people” should “acknowledge and listen with empathy when Black colleagues share their lived experiences.”
Rufo would eventually claim in May, “multiple sources have told me that Disney has completely removed its diversity and inclusion program from the company’s website—effectively scrubbing it out of existence.”
He added, “Disney was peddling the most toxic elements of critical race theory— —and my reporting led to immediate changes within the company.”
“The truth is simple: corporate ‘diversity and inclusion’ is a scam. It’s a reputation-laundering mechanism for corporations and divides Americans into competing racial categories. Shut it down,” he concluded.
However, in September Disney launched their “Reimagine Tomorrow” campaign publicly.

Again, it’s no surprise that Disney would hire an extreme activist like Jake Castorena when the company is actively trying to propagandize its employees with extreme racism.
