Drew Barrymore caves to pressure, halts premier and apologizes for resuming show during writer’s strike

Actress Drew Barrymore has yielded to the woke, leftist mob and backed down from continuing her show amid the Writers’ Guild strike.

“I have listened to everyone, and I am making the decision to pause the show’s premiere until the strike is over. I have no words to express my deepest apologies to anyone I have hurt and, of course, to our incredible team who works on the show and has made it what it is today,” she said in an Instagram statement Sunday.

“We really tried to find our way forward. And I truly hope for a resolution for the entire industry soon,” she added.

As previously reported, Barrymore decided earlier this month to resume her talk show amid the strike.

“I am .. making the choice to come back for the first time in this strike for our show, that may have my name on it is but this is bigger than just me. I own this choice,” she said at the time in an Instagram post.

The decision prompted ginormous amounts of backlash — so much so that her friend, fellow actress Rosie O’Donnell — begged her to back down and apologize.

“Stop taping the show. Stop asking audiences to cross the picket line. Then ask someone to help you craft three declarative sentences,” O’Donnell said in an Instagram post of her own.

“They should follow along these lines: I made an error. I apologize to the WGA for disrespecting the work of professional writers. I apologize to all union members who are withstanding real hardship as I live a life of luxury,” she added.

Barrymore initially did follow the recommendation to some extent by issuing an apology to her writers and the union. However, she stuck with her decision to revive her show.

“I deeply apologize to writers. I deeply apologize to unions. I deeply apologize. I wanted to own a decision so that it wasn’t a PR-protected situation and I would just take full responsibility for my actions. I know there’s just nothing I can do that will make this okay for those it is not okay with,” she said.

“This is bigger than me, and there are other people’s jobs on the line. I want to just put one foot in front of the other and make a show that’s there for people, regardless of anything else that’s happening in the world,” she added.

But given her decision to stick with the show, the apology did little to quell the backlash:

It’s no surprise therefore that just a day after posting the apology video, she fully bent the knee and cancelled the return of her show.

The only good news is that her decision to bend the knee has inspired all her haters — the people who were calling her a “worthless scab” just seconds ago — to start praising her.


The question now though is whether it was worth it to sell out her dignity for the praise of people like this …
