The same company that claimed it fired Roseanne Barr for “racist” Tweets, has a history of hiring convicted pedophiles and giving them access to children.

The cancellation of the series “Roseanne,” and the public firing of Roseanne Barr have created a media firestorm, and while ABC was publicly responsible, the network is owned by Disney, and the decision was ultimately made by Disney CEO Bob Iger.
However, the quick decision made by Disney with the claim that it would not tolerate “racist” comments, makes many wonder why the company, which built its empire on entertaining children and families, thought it fitting to fire Barr over her controversial Tweets, at the same time that it seems indifferent to hiring pedophiles and sexual predators to work inside the family-friendly organization.
Both Brian Peck and Victor Salva were convicted of several sex crimes against children—yet went on, after their convictions, to enjoy lucrative careers within Disney’s corporation. Peck, who starred in X-Men and in all three Living Dead films, served 16 months in prison and he still works with children on Disney film projects. According to court documents reported by the Daily Mail, detailing Peck’s crimes against a child actor known as “John Doe” to protect his identity:
The documents show Peck was originally charged with 11 counts including: lewd act upon a child; sodomy of a person under 16; attempted sodomy of a person under 16; sexual penetration by foreign object; four counts of oral copulation of a person under 16; oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance; sending harmful matter; and using a minor for sex acts.
