Stephen Amell, the actor best known for his role as Arrow on The CW‘s series, has issued an apology for the dismissive comments he made about the SAG-AFTRA strike. The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) strike, a collective labor action by various voice-over and motion-capture professionals in the entertainment industry, is generating widespread attention and support.

Amell had previously compared the strike to “a long vacation” and suggested that the strike participants were not actually working, but just complaining. However, the actor has now retracted his statements and apologized for his insensitive remarks through a written statement on his Twitter account.

In his statement, Amell said, “I made comments about the SAG-AFTRA strike at a convention recently that were ill-advised, ill-considered, it was reckless, and they were wrong. I’m sorry. I should have known better. I will do better.” He acknowledged that the actors participating in the strike are actually fighting for important labor rights, such as Fair Pay, Health Benefits, and Safe Work Environments, which are critical to the well-being of entertainment industry workers.

Amell’s apology demonstrates his recognition of the importance of the strike and indicates his support for the workers in the entertainment industry. As a notable TV actor, his statement may positively influence how the public perceives the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike and may contribute to the overall support for the workers’ fight for better work conditions.
