Disney Gets a Hand in Bin Laden’s Death

Upon the night of Bin Laden’s death, I did hear jokes about Disney making a movie surrounding the navy seals responsible for his murder. Well, irony or ironies, the day after Bin Laden’s death, The Walt Disney Company sought trademark for the name “Seal Team 6,”- the team who entered Bin Laden’s hideout, and then shot him.

Whether or not this means a movie, is unclear. It could mean a myriad things. It could mean a new section in a theme park. Who knows? Although some would argue that this was a smart business move on Disney’s part, I did find it somewhat tacky. The company was immediately ready to profit off of someone’s death.

The deal is technically still pending, but if Disney did get the trademark, it would cover toys, clothes, video games, etc.
