The fan backlash would be directed at Disney at first, but would eventually fall on Fox and I believe they would cave.
It was rumored FOX would do this, but that was before the Disney purchase. There is not a theater owner in the world who would get involved in a Disney IP dispute and risk being banned from showing Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars films.
