BURBANK, CALIFORNIA: According to people with knowledge of the situation, ex-CEO Bob Chapek was fired after a number of senior Disney employees complained that he was ruining the business. They stated that Christine McCarthy, the chief financial officer of Disney, was one of those who expressed concerns that Chapek, 62, was unqualified for the position.

In response to the allegations, the company’s board of directors contacted Bob Iger, 71, Chapek’s predecessor and former mentor, and requested that he come out of retirement recently to succeed a man he had previously named as his successor, according to CNBC. Sources claim that Chapek was “blindsided” by the change, which led to the early termination of his 11-month term as chief executive officer after a series of errors and public disputes significantly lowered the company’s stock prices. Officials confirmed the action in a statement issued Sunday evening, November 20, but did not provide any specific justification for Chapek’s dismissal.
