A new report from CNBC states that one executive admitted there are “internal wagers at Disney about Iger returning” as CEO. This news comes after the backlash that current CEO Bob Chapek has received these last two years.

Now, as the new report of Iger possibly returning has surfaced, fans are begging The Walt Disney Company to bring Iger back as CEO and to get rid of Chapek.

For starters, if you were not aware, Bob Chapek took on the role of CEO of the Walt Disney Company after Bob Iger stepped down in early 2020. Ever since Chapek became Disney CEO, there has been a ton of backlash from fans on how he is handling the role, including the creation of a petition asking Disney to fire him, which has gained over 84,000 signatures.

Chapek has been CEO during the ongoing pandemic and has made difficult decisions throughout this last year and a half, including the layoffs of thousands of Cast Members after the Parks shutdown and the launch of Disney Genie, including the new paid FastPass system, Lightning Lane.

Now, after the backlash that Chapek has received, and with the new report hinting that Iger could return as CEO, it has fans begging The Walt Disney Company to make this happen.
