With the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes now underway, tensions are high in Hollywood, and the situation was greatly exacerbated by recent comments from an unnamed studio executive.
While speaking about the strikes to Deadline, the individual was quoted as saying: "The endgame is to allow things to drag on until union members start losing their apartments and losing their homes."
Understandably, these comments did not go over very well, especially after details of the negotiation between representatives of the Screen Actors Guild and the AMPTP were shared online.
Now, Hellboy star Ron Perlman - who has never been shy when it comes to voicing his opinion - has shared a video to social media in response to this mysterious exec, and he is not messing around.
"We know who said that and where he f*cking lives. You wish that families starve while you’re making 27-f*cking million a year for creating nothing? Be careful, motherf*cker, there's lots of ways you can lose your home."
Perlman's comments have raised a lot of eyebrows, with some empathizing with how angry he is, and others feeling he may have taken things a little too far. It is very interesting that he mentions a 27 million-a-year salary - because that's exactly what Disney chief Bob Iger is said to be earning.
What do you make of Perlman's video? Do you stand with the strikers, or do you, like Mr. Iger, feel their demands are unrealistic? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.
