Drew Barrymore received a lot of criticism when she announced that she would resume her talk show, “The Drew Barrymore Show,” during the strike.



She posted a video apologizing, but deleted it just a few hours later.

The Drew Barrymore Show” began filming its fourth season while the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) and WGA (Writers Guild of America) strikes continued. The decision was met with backlash from the industry.


On Friday, September 15, local time, Drew posted a lengthy video on Instagram addressing her decision. Within hours, however, the post was removed from her page.


In the deleted video, Drew was in tears. She then addressed the backlash her decision faced, stating that while the situation was very complicated, her “intentions were not where it would upset or hurt anyone. ‘I want to take full responsibility for my actions,’ she said, ‘I don’t think there’s anything I can do or say at this moment to make it OK. I know there is nothing I can do. I fully accept that and fully understand that.”


Drew added, “I have had many ups and downs in my life, and this is one of them. I deeply apologize to the writers. I also apologize deeply to the union. I don’t really know what to say, because sometimes when things are so tough, it’s hard to make decisions from that place,” he continued, elaborating on why he decided to move forward with a new season of the show in the first place.


‘Why am I doing this? Well, we didn’t expect this kind of attention, and we didn’t intend to break any rules, and we intend to comply. We’re not going to break any rules and we intend to comply. Other people’s jobs are at stake,” she reasoned.


She added that since “The Drew Barrymore Show” began during the COVID-19 pandemic, he believed that broadcasting during the ongoing strike was “another way to help people during a sensitive time.”
