“I know there is just nothing I can do that will make this OK to those that it is not OK with. I fully accept that. I fully understand that,” she stared. “There are so many reasons why this is so complex, and I just want everyone to know my intentions have never been in a place to upset or hurt anymore. It’s not who I am. I’ve been through so many ups and downs in my life, and this is one of them.”
Drew further added, “I deeply apologize to writers. I deeply apologize to the unions. There’s a huge question of the why — why am I doing this?”
“Well, I certainly couldn’t have expected this kind of attention, and we aren’t going to break rules and we will be in compliance. I wanted to do this because as I said, this is bigger than me and there are other people’s jobs on the line.”
Celebs who criticized her decision included Debra Messing, Alyssa Milano and Bradley Whitford.
“Drew Barrymore would like you to know that undermining union solidarity at the most crucial moment in Hollywood labor history makes her the victim,” Bradley commented. “This has been, like, a super tough week for her.”
