Why Is Jenna Ortega Getting Mocked By Striking Writers?

Wednesday actress Jenna Ortega faces severe backlash as she comments on the writing of Wednesday. 

Jenna Ortega received praise for her dramatic cinematography and trending dance movements in the Netflix series Wednesday. The part and the show received largely favourable reviews; due to its huge viewership, a second season has already been ordered.

The Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) went on strike earlier this week. All late-night discussion shows, as well as broadcast and streaming show development, were immediately stopped. Several authors were criticising Ortega in the midst of all of this via tweets or signs.

Jenna Ortega has said that through doing multiple improvisations, she contributed to the development of her well-liked Netflix series “Wednesday.” The actress’ comment did not go down well with many Hollywood screenwriters, and they started criticising her.

Several reports claim that several screenwriters criticised the young actress for her statement during the writer’s strike. “Bojack Horseman” creator Nick Adams tweeted that Jenna Ortega had better return from New York for her afternoon stint on the picket line.

Rewriting is writing, right? “The Bear” author Karen Joseph Adcock tweeted, “See you at the line, Jenna.” “House Party” author Brandon Cohen stood on a picket line with a sign that read, “Jenna Ortega will have nothing to punch up without writers!”

After Jenna’s statement went viral, many internet users took her class, and many individuals voiced their opinions about this on social media. They claimed she was being used as a scapegoat while the writer’s union had nothing to do with her.

Outside of studios in Los Angeles, tens of thousands of authors have been forming picket lines, marching, and yelling protest signs. After negotiations between the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) broke down, the strike was called.
