Disney parks fans it isn’t just you. It seems that a CNBC news anchor accidentally called Disney CEO Bob Chapek, “Bob Paycheck” on air, before catching the mistake and calling him by the correct name.
The clip comes from WDWNT who caught it and posted it online!

“Bob Paycheck” is just one of the many names people call the embattled CEO. I usually call him “Bob Cheapek” but “Bob Paycheck” is the one I hear used the most.
Twitter has some other ones:
I call him Bob Cheapskate 😂

I mean, it could have been worse. Carl could have called him “Bob Beancounter.”

No error detected. You heard right & they were correct the first time. 😏

I wonder how much trouble the news anchor got into given that Bob Chapek is always doing interviews on CNBC. I guess it could have been worse. It could have been ABC News.
