Letters: Anti-Muslim bias at Disney?

August 16, 2012

Re "Woman's lawsuit accuses Disneyland of bias," Aug. 14

If I had broken as many rules at my job as Imane Boudlal did at hers with Disneyland Resort, I would have been fired. There would have been no offer of any other position within my company.

Disneyland is a theme park, with employees dressing as "cast members" of a fantasy world. Her supervisors even offered a specially designed scarf (which needed corporate approval). This is bordering on absurd.

If Walt Disney Co. settles by paying her off, I may consider not renewing the annual pass I have had for more years than I can count.

I am an Orthodox Jew, and Jewish men always wear a kippah on their heads. No one says anything about them. And yet Boudlal, who is a Muslim, is not allowed to wear her head scarf, which is her custom. I think this is extremely unfair to her and to any Muslim.

I would have no problem seeing her as a hostess and having her seat my family with her head scarf on. Disneyland needs to listen to its customers, or it risks losing them.
