Drew Barrymore is pressing “pause” on the Season 4 premiere of her talk show after receiving massive backlash for resuming filming amid the ongoing actors’ and writers’ strikes in Hollywood.
”I have listened to everyone, and I am making the decision to pause the show’s premiere until the strike is over,” the host of “The Drew Barrymore Show” wrote via Instagram
“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 is today.”
Barrymore, 48, added that she “really tried” to “find a way forward” with production as the film industry enters its fourth month of being on strike.
She received heat from fellow actor Rosie O’Donnell on Saturday, who demanded that Barrymore “stop taping” her show.
“Stop asking audiences to cross the picket line,” O’Donnell shared in a screenshot
