25 Intelligent Signs From the Hollywood Writers' Strike That Will Make You Chuckle
Light, camera, and action! Without a doubt, Hollywood is a space of creativity that consists of very many people who carry an undying love for entertainment. But, let's be real for a second. Is everyone valued for the time and effort they put in for our favorite TV shows and movies? The unsung heroes of the film industry are nobody but the writers who flesh out the story and put life into the characters that we love so much. But do they get the deserved remuneration? These quirky, caffeine-fueled individuals spend their days hunched over a keyboard coming up with witty dialogues. Without them, the studios would be lost.
The union representing a lot of movie and television writers went on strike on Tuesday bringing much production to a sudden stop. This is not the first time that the Writers Guild of America consisting of 11,500 writers went to strike against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. This protest is not like the other protests. Leave it to the writers to make even their protest signs more entertaining than shows ever will be, without them. Here are some of the signs that will make you chuckle even on a serious cause.

5. Oh the threats!
Nobody wants to strike, but in my experience as a writer/director/producer, writing, which is by far the most important job of the three, is the most undervalued. I've been WGA for seven years, which means 7 years of health insurance b/c others fought for it #WGA #writersstrike pic.twitter.com/wBNGC9WeDP— Terry Miles (@tkmiles) May 3, 2023
6. Oh, comedy!
