Stephen Amell recently appeared at the GalaxyCon fan convention in Raleigh, N.C., revealing that while he supports SAG-AFTRA, he's not on board with the strikes.
Making the argument that "a lot of people in this room aren't aware of the strike," the Arrow star went on to say, "I support my union. I do, and I stand with them. I do not support striking. I don’t. I think that is a reductive negotiating tactic. I find the entire thing incredibly frustrating."
"And I think that the thinking as it pertains to shows like the show that I’m on that premiered last night [Heels Season 2], I think it’s myopic."
While many have been quick to criticise Amell, it's likely his comments came from a place of frustration. Heels was negatively affected by the pandemic and its second season comes a long time after the first; junket interviews (prohibited by the strike) would have done an awful lot to raise awareness about the series but those are not currently possible.
Still, the Arrowverse alum might have considered choosing his words a little more carefully. Now, some of his fellow DC TV actors have now taken aim at the former Oliver Queen.
Among them are The Flash star Reverse-Flash actor Matt Letscher and Kirk Acevedo, who played Ricardo Diaz/The Dragon during Arrow's sixth and seventh seasons. While the Eobard Thawne actor took a veiled shot at Amell, Acevedo didn't mince his words.
Members of SAG-AFTRA have been on strike since July 13 after negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers fell apart.
Now, we just wait to see which Arrowverse actor will be first to say, "Stephen Amell, you have failed this strike..."
