Disney will reportedly lay off “thousands” of employees next week in the second wave of an ongoing bloodbath that is expected to result in 7,000 job cuts.

Some of the impacted Disney workers will receive their pink slips as soon as April 24, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the company’s plans.

The layoffs are expected to hit jobs across Disney’s global business, which was reorganized into three segments in February – one called “Disney Entertainment” that includes its film, TV, and streaming assets, one for sports media giant ESPN and one for the Mouse House’s theme parks and experiences.
