Dr. Michael Bucholz, Chief of Cryogenics at Disney, said the continuing refusal of Ms. Cyrus to acknowledge the harm she has done to her reputation, and the reputation of the company, forced the hand of Disney executives. “Perhaps three hours in a conference room with the corpse of the man responsible for her career will bring her back to her senses.”
The controversy over the photos of Ms. Cyrus, which appear in the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, threatens to cos t the company millions of dollars in lost revenue if parents decide Ms. Cyrus no longer projects an image that is suitably wholesome for their children.
Mr. Disney, who died in 1966, has spent the past forty-two years in a cryogenic chamber in an undisclosed location on the grounds of the Magic Kingdom.
A spokesman for the Disney Corporation said this is only the second time Mr. Disney has been thawed out for a public appearance. In 1973, his perfectly-preserved remains attended the wedding of former Mouseketeer Annette Funicello.
