Disney takes their mask-wearing policies while you visit the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs very seriously. They have additional Cast Members stationed throughout the parks to remind guests to keep their nose and mouth covered at all times.
According to WESH 2 Orlando, “Spectacular Blue Smith,” a reality television personality from the show Love & Hip Hop, is facing charges after allegedly punching a cast member at Disney World.
Smith was walking in line for an attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park and when he walked past a CM, pretended to sneeze, and said “coronavirus,” according to an arrest affidavit from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
The CM told Smith that his joke was not funny, but Smith snapped back with, “I thought it was.”
According to the affidavit, the employee then told Smith, “Then you’ll think it’s hilarious, if I asked you to step out of the line.”
When Smith refused to leave the line, the CM put his arm out in an attempt to stop Smith from continuing in the line, when Smith then “turned and punched him on his right side jaw and right temple area,” according to the affidavit from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
The CM told police that he stumbled and fell, and said he “was in shock and thought he might’ve lost consciousness.” He was taken to Horizon West Hospital, and diagnosed with a concussion after undergoing a CT scan, the affidavit said.
Smith was arrested and faces a battery charge for the incident. Smith has since posted bond.
