As a result of his snowplow running him over on January 1, 2023, American actor Jeremy Renner suffered a horrific injury. In addition to blunt chest trauma, he suffered other injuries. The snowplow weighed 14,330 pounds, according to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Department. A helicopter was used to transport the actor to a local hospital, Renown Regional Medical Center. Renner was described as critical but stable at the time by a representative. Following surgery, the actor was admitted to the intensive care unit in critical condition. After recovering from his illness, Renner announced a few weeks later that he had been released from the hospital and had returned to his home.
Over 30 bones were broken in the accident that injured the star. Though fans are happy to hear the actor is recovering, they think Disney is milking the tragedy by making a special about it. On April 7, 2023, a special with Renner and Diane Sawyer will be released on Disney+. He will be seen focusing on the accident and discussing a few incredibly private subjects with Sawyer. Obviously, fans were extremely angry with the special and took to Twitter to get down on it.

Disney Has Been Criticized For ‘Milking’ Jeremy Renner Accident With The Diane Sawyer Special
There is no doubt that Jeremy Renner is on the road to recovery, and he is willing to talk about it. A snowplow accident earlier this year left the Marvel star in critical condition. He will speak with ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer for an hour-long special. Trying to prevent his nephew Alexander Fries from being hit by a seven-ton PistenBully snowplow on New Year’s Day, Renner was seriously injured. Although fans are happy about the actor’s recovery, some feel Disney is taking advantage of the tragedy by airing a special about it. An interview between Renner and Diane Sawyer will take place in the special, which will air on Disney+ on April 7, 2023. Throughout the episode, he will be seen opening up to Sawyer about the accident and discussing some very personal subjects. A number of Disney fans were extremely angry with the special and took to Twitter to criticize it. Some said it wasn’t necessary, while others said that it was just extra.
Several fans are furious over Disney’s decision to interview Renner after the accident, calling it a money-making ploy. The trailer for the special looks almost parodic. Audience members have compared it to the events in the hit Prime Video series, The Boys, and have said that Disney is becoming more like Vought. Several people have called the interview staged and asked Disney to seek out alternative methods of making money. The ABC News special will highlight footage from Renner’s hospital stay and recovery. Jeremy Renner gets emotional when recalling the love and support he received from his family during his hospital stay. I lost a lot of flesh and bone, but I gained love and titanium from this experience, he says. Recently, Jeremy posted a video of himself strolling on an antigravity treadmill, expressing, I presently need to track down Different things to possess my time so my body can recuperate from my will #minduful #intended #recovery.

Everyone acting like Disney forced him to do this when starring in a documentary about himself titled A STORY OF TERROR, SURVIVAL AND TRIUMPH is the most Jeremy Renner thing to do ever https://t.co/F03qL2Aut5
