SAG-AFTRA wants to regulate what striking actors can wear for Halloween costumes, gets wrecked by Ryan Reynolds
My nephew is dressing up as Wolverene for Halloween this year, and my niece is dressing up as that creepy Megan doll from the horror movie. If anyone in my family gave a rip, both would be in violation of the SAG-AFTRA strike. The union is telling people what they can and can't dress up as for Halloween.
Your lack of interest in the actor strike right now is matched by your surprise the strike is still going on, or that there even is a strike. I'm with you. The disdain Hollywood as an institution has towards the middle class and everyone living in flyover country is palpable. There isn't a single striking Hollywood lifeform that wouldn't have you or me blacklisted from a production over having the wrong political opinion. Still, the pettiness here needs to be marveled at.
Per a flyer going around, striking actors, in order to both celebrate Halloween AND stand in solidarity, must choose generic Halloween costumes that don't feature characters from struck content. And, for the love of Xenu, do NOT post photos on social media.
Only choose generic costumes like zombies or vampires, or from "non-struck content" like animated TV shows. So my nephew would be standing in solidarity. My niece would be standing for a sack full of Halloween candy.
“Let’s use our collective power to send a loud and clear message to our struck employers that we will not promote their content without a fair contract!”
Actor Ryan Renolds summarized the ridiculousness perfectly: "I look forward to screaming 'scab' at my 8-year-old all night. She’s not in the union but she needs to learn."
Actress Melissa Gilbert, who's also a former SAG-AFTRA president, stands less in solidarity than in utter disbelief: "Literally no one cares what anyone wears for Halloween. I mean, do you really think this kind of infantile stuff is going to end the strike? We look like a joke."
The actors' strike is nearing its 100th day. We here at the Louder with Crowder Dot Com website are also nearing our 100th day of not caring.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
