Is Disney 'dissing' open source?

A YouTube clip has appeared on the web apparently taken from Disney Channel sitcom ‘Shake It Up’ which has been labelled by some parties as nothing less than anti-open-source propaganda.

The show’s original concept was for Disney to create (and please bite your tongue before you read this) a “female buddy comedy, only with a dance aspect” for television.

In the episode clip that is currently posted online we see a bespectacled nerd pre-teen geeky kid offering computing advice to his friends.

He asks, “Did you use open source code to save time and the virus was hidden in it?”

When he gets the answer “maybe” in reply he says, “Rookie mistake!”

What is Disney’s beef with open source one wonders?

Is community contribution model computing not politically correct enough for the proprietary puritans in charge?
