HBO Euphoria has been branded a “toxic” workplace by insiders who claim that background actors were denied meals and bathroom breaks during 18-hour workdays, according to a report. HBO responded saying that the well-being of the cast and crew is a “top priority.”
Euphoria “crew members and background actors” told The Daily Beast that aspects of Season 2’s production were hellish, with some describing the work environment as “toxic.”
Workdays would also reportedly last up to 18 hours, and several complaints have been made to the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA).
The story says a union representative was sent to the set after complaints from extras about the conditions of the shoot.
“Creatively, it must be a dream, but logistically? Come on,” one source told The Daily Beast, referring to the show’s creator Sam Levinson — son of famed Rain Man director Barry Levinson — who allegedly arrives on set without a shot list and decides what to shoot off the cuff. “It felt very privileged on that set.”
The Daily Beast’s ources added that people eventually began “dropping like flies,” with the casting agency having to constantly recruit more extras.
“I understand that I’m doing background work,” one actor told The Daily Beast. “I’m not the most important person there, I know where I am on the totem pole.”
“But it got to a point where I was like, I’m still a person, I’m still human. Please let me go to the restroom, don’t tell me I can’t go for 30 minutes or tell me I can’t get a snack when you’re not going to feed me and it’s 4 a.m.,” the actor added. “It just very much felt like we didn’t exist as people.”Another actor told the outlet, “It was the most disorganized set that I’ve […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
