Counterparts - The SAG/AFTRA & WGA STRIKE - July 18th 2023


When the leaders of Hollywood's actors union announced a strike last week, the most fiery words spoken came from SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher, who drew thunderous applause when she berated movie studios executives for what she called unreasonable and insulting demands.

She decried the studios for "plead[ing] poverty, that they're losing money left and right, when giving hundreds of millions of dollars to their CEOs."

"It is disgusting. Shame on them. They stand on the wrong side of history at this very moment, " Drescher, 65, said.
