• Drew Barrymore first said her show would return
  • Fans were outraged due to the strikes
  • Now Drew has reversed her decision

Drew Barrymore: "I have listened to everyone"

Drew Barrymore angered fans and industry colleagues when she made the decision last week to resume her talk show, 'The Drew Barrymore Show', without writers during the strikes. This announcement was immediately met with swift and strong backlash.

The actress initially stood by her decision to bring back her show, citing concerns for the rest of her staff.

“I wanted to do this because as I said, this is bigger than me, and there are other people’s jobs on the line," Drew said in a now deleted apology video. 

Now, it seems the negative feedback has gotten to her, because she has decided to halt the show's comeback until the Hollywood strikes are resolved. Drew Barrymore shared a statement on her Instagram page, apologizing once again for the original choice to return.

While this issue seems to be resolved for now, Drew Barrymore will not escape this situation without consequence. According to 'Variety', the actress was set to host this year's National Book awards, but her invitation has since been revoked.
