Disney World guest chants 'Lock him up' during Donald Trump's robot speech at Hall of Presidents

Posted By on Thu, Dec 28, 2017 at 12:29 PM

Because perhaps Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump administration isn't enough, a concerned citizen is now demanding we lock up Disney's Trump robot.

Yesterday, a guest identified as Jay Malsky filmed himself yelling "Lock him up" throughout the Trump-bot's speech at the Disney World Hall of Presidents.



During the video you can hear a Disney castmember on the loudspeaker asking Malsky to sit down and be quiet. Another guest can also be heard yelling, "He's not real!"

Though the attraction officially reopened on Dec. 19, we're honestly a bit surprised it took this long to happen.

Malsky also tweeted the outburst:
For some perspective, these sort of outbursts, while rare, also occurred when Obama's robot was on stage. 

Since Trump's inauguration, his robot likenesses at Disney World has been the center of controversy. Last January, a petition to silence the Trump-bot made the rounds, as well as calls for Disney boycotts.
