I used to perform for Disney Cruise Lines stationed at Port Canaveral, Florida and I never ever heard a news story quite like this come from the park. A former employee named Jason Jeter who was fired from the Walt Disney Company in March was banned for life (supposedly).
A popular Tiktoker gets in trouble for drinking fountain water. Ew.
After Jason, who goes by "Jete" on Tiktok was fired in March, he revealed that Disney didn't like a few of the Tiktoks he'd posted where he'd entered an unlocked restricted wedding pavilion and another where he drank water from various fountains around the different parks at DisneyWorld and gave them a rating.
I have to stop writing this for a moment because I am gagging.
Jete continued to visit Disneyword and make Tiktoks about his mischief even after his termination, joking with his followers that he was on "Disney's Most Wanted List" and saying he was followed by employees. I guess he wasn't wrong because in a fresh video he tells his audience he received a "lifetime ban" from the park.
When recounting the firing, Jeter says he showed up at the parking lot close to the Grand Floridan hotel for some food but noticed security "circling" his vehicle. Once Jeter exited his car, he said the Orange County Sheriff's Office gave him a tresspass warning and told him he was no longer allowed at the park.
Jete didn't tell his fans what Disneyworld security and an "investigator" told him when the explained the warning, but he did say he could "never go back to Disney, Ever."
To make this whole situation more ridiculous, before Jeter was terminated he was also making videos at Universal Studios. And though the park didn't ban Jeter, they did show him they had their eyes on him through a cheeky tweet.
My opinion that noone asked for
No one asked for my opinion, but these are my thoughts on the matter. I'm not entirely sure what to make of this entire situation. I was not personally a fan of performing for Disney, but even I knew not to mess around with them. I'm surprised Mr. Jeter didn't get a worse sentence. And as far as drinking water from fountains, well that's nasty. I know people go through great lengths to get social media views, but I can't imagine chugging public fountain water.
I think I'm gonna be sick, honestly. What are your thoughts? Do you think Jeter should have been banned from Disney World?
