Immediately remove the headline and send out a memo to the entire infrastructure at Disney. Maybe send the employees involved to racial sensitivity training, which although likely just symbolic, would be better than labeling people as irredeemably racist when they were not, and having the whole thing become more of an issue than it was. They could have opened up real discussions with the idividuals and communities involved. They could have looked at their hiring practices throughout Disney, and made changes to ensure there was a level of diversity represented at all levels, which believe it or not would have a big impact on these sorts of things happening. All they really did was blow it up and then brush it off with a sacrificial firing and an apology.
