Tatiana Maslany, the star of the Disney+ series "She-Hulk," has slammed Disney CEO Bob Iger for his comments on the ongoing Hollywood strikes. Iger had said that the strikes were "very disruptive" and that the expectations of fair pay from striking workers were "not realistic."
Maslany responded to Iger's comments in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying that he was "completely out of touch" with the workers who make his shows happen. She said that she had worked on a Disney show in the past and had seen firsthand how workers were taken advantage of. She also said that it was "outrageous" that the wealth generated by these shows was not shared more equitably with the people who actually make them.
Maslany's comments are just the latest in a wave of criticism that Iger has faced for his handling of the strikes. Other Hollywood stars, including Bryan Cranston and Mark Ruffalo, have also spoken out against Iger, calling his comments "tone-deaf" and "insulting."
It remains to be seen whether Maslany's comments will have any impact on Iger or Disney. However, her words have certainly added to the pressure on the company to reach a deal with the unions.
