The drama never seems to cease for rip-off Disney seller Christopher Martin.
Earlier this week, Christopher posted an 18-minute-long video blog that showed him being physically removed from the Walt Disney World Resort property. The video went viral within the Disney community, with many feeling shocked that Christopher was sharing the occurrence with the public. As he was being removed from the Magic Kingdom Park, he was given a yellow slip of paper, which means that he was banned from the Parks indefinitely. Now that it’s been a few days since the situation, he has sat down with his wife and business partner, Hannah Martin, to talk about what really happened.
Christopher Responds to the Public’s Questions
Christopher and Hannah Martin have made quite a name for themselves in the Disney community. The couple is very polarising when it comes to fans; some love the couple and support their business and Facebook groups. Others feel that they are irresponsible, reckless, and immature. The Walt Disney Company would likely agree with the latter statement.
The Martins own a business called Sparkling Dreamers, where they sell Mickey ears to Disney fans. While it is not illegal to sell Mickey ears, it is illegal to sell anything that is ripping off the intellectual property of Disney. Most other small businesses understand this, but Christopher chooses to ignore Disney’s requests for them to stop selling these products.
Now, Disney is suing the couple and has permanently banned them from both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
The Martins Feel They Are Victims
The couple took to TikTok to share their side of the story and to answer any questions Disney fans have for them. In the video, it is clear that the couple sees themself as the victim in this situation. Hannah Martin expresses that she feels sad about the hateful comments being left about her. Despite being less involved in the company and in the Facebook groups, Hannah is banned as well.
Christopher completely avoids any questions that are actually pressing. Instead, he asks his wife if she is “a mail order bride,” a question that clearly upsets her.
We had tons of questions submitted to us & were starting to anser them. This is part 1. #sparklingdreamers #shopsmallbusiness #shopsmal #fyp #fypシ #fypシ゚viral #business #mouseearslover
Many fans are sticking up for Disney in this situation and supporting their decision to ban the Sparkling Dreamers owners. We will have to wait and see what ends up happening with their legal issues.
