Y'know outdated principles like property rights and control. Just little things.
Like free speech rights, having property rights don't mean "the right to be free from all consequences arising from the choices I make about how I exercise my rights". The same with a State's right to pass certain legislation regulating issues within its jurisdiction.
Disney/Marvel is a for-profit company. Clearly they've made a decision that aligning themselves unambiguously with inclusion and diversity as opposed to sexual orientation discrimination is a good strategy for their brand. They're throwing some of their economic clout behind it (or more to the point, are making a point of being seen to do so.) Corporations threatening to move their business or take similar actions if political issues don't go their way is hardly new. Not sure why anyone would get butthurt about this latest example of it. Or maybe Disney, unlike other corporations, should have neither property nor free speech rights with respect to how it spends its money?
