Suppose Hollywood strikes and nobody cares .
Is Hollywood collapsing? This is a valid question, considering the public response to the fable- scribes and adult pretenders work stoppage has been a collective yawn.
After all , have you heard any complaints that late night talk shows having gone dark? I haven’t . What about the complaints regarding delays with movies and steaming content on platforms like Disney Plus, otherwise known as D+? Nope, not a word.
This does not bode well for woke Hollywood. The people are sick of woke politics and the attempts to ram them down our throat in every media and every platform.
You hear that silence Hollywood? That’s the public no longer paying attention to overpaid, spoiled, entitled narcissists who believe their opinions carry weight because they play pretend on the big and small screen .
The magic is gone, and your luster has dulled. Everyday, less gullible people hang by your every word or shallow observations. What a relief not to hear virtue-seeking, Trump-hating observations by the know-nothings passing themselves as cutting edge late-night hosts.
Since May 2 the the writers have marched. The members of the “Film Actors Guild” ” began marching in solidarity on July 14. So for nearly 140 days and nearly 70 days , respectively, there’s no end in sight.
Actors and writers are reporting financial difficulty as the strike continues . What is the end game? Most of America could care less.
The problem is you’ve alienated most of your paying audience. You had adult pretenders condemning Americans as selfish for resisting masking and mandatory vaccinations during the lockdowns. “Film Actors Guild” members were all in during the “summer of love” echoing the propaganda of peaceful protest . Finally, you condemn MAGA as racist.
Not every actor or writer walks in lockstep with leftist Hollywood. However those conservative scribes and thespians must tread cautiously for fear of blacklist by their tolerant peers. Those are the people I feel sorry for.
You can also add those who toil behind the scenes, such as the drivers, caterers, set designers, wardrobe, lighting specialists, and editors. I even empathize with those on the periphery who depend on the denizens of modern Babylon, such as restauranteurs , bartenders food servers and limo drivers.
As for the entertainment industry, public sympathy is waning at best. Actions have consequences. Insult your audience long enough and eventually they will reject you .
Will the actors, producers, and directors learn their lesson during this collective strike? We’ll see.
One thing’s for sure: once you piss off an audience, it’s hard to get them back. Good riddance, says most of America. As Hollywood strikes, it is finding that most hard-working people could care less.
