Megan Fox has been heavily criticised after she dressed up for Halloween as a character from movie Kill Bill and tagged the SAG-AFTRA official page amid the ongoing strike.
The performers union SAG-AFTRA set up guidelines for ongoing strike actors ahead of the Halloween weekend, prohibiting them from dressing up as popular characters from struck work, including popular movies and shows, and posting pH๏τos on social media, writes The Mirror.
But the actress made it clear that she was ignoring the guidelines that were put in place last week as she donned an outfit which portrayed Gogo Yubari, a killer school-girl character from Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill: Vol. 1”, and tagged SAG-AFTRA in the post.
One user wrote: “Yes girl give it to your union trying to get better wages and benefits for lesser known people than u!”
While one said: “Not a good look to publicly defy the union that is fighting to protect you, at an imperative time when they are actively calling on members to share messages of support and strength on socials.”
However, it seems that Megan isn’t the only star challenging the Halloween guidelines set by SAG-AFTRA. Comedian Sarah Sherman openly mocked the rules limiting costumes on a recent episode of Saturday Night Live, joking about how kids can switch up their costumes to be acceptable according to SAG-AFTRA rules.
In the special, she jokingly called kids dressed up like Barbie and Spider-Man “a bunch of adorable scabs,” and re-introduced new costumes for children that would be acceptable. She joked: “Harry Potter as described only in the books,” “minor characters from the Bible who have not appeared in any movie or TV adaptations” and daytime and reality personalities.
The strikes have began over an ongoing labor dispute with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. Those in support of the strike are calling for actors to be paid livable wages, long-term pay, consistency of employment, control over the use of artificial intelligence, among other concerns in the entertainment industry.
