Disney Parks fans, it’s not just you. It appears 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 put it online!

“Bob Paycheck” is just one of 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 others:
I call him Bob Cheapskate 😂

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

No error detected. You heard it right and they were right the first time. 😏

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