As the Writers Guild of America strike is continuing into its second week on both coasts, they’ve received a lot of support and surprise appearances from several folks in the entertainment industry.

Deadline reports that Sean Penn, while attending the Cannes Film Festival, said, “The industry has been upending the writers and directors for a long time. I fully support the situation with the writers guild, of course.” He also mentioned that he thinks the producers should be renamed “The Bankers Guild.”

Reuters reported that Penn “called the studios’ rejection of their demand to restrict the use of Artificial Intelligence in writing scripts a human obscenity.”

Other supports include Rivers Cuomo and “Weezer” who performed for the writers and tweeted, “We stand with writers #WGAStrong.” Dan Reynolds and Imagine Dragons also showed their support for the writers by performing.

Most recently, as the Writers Guild of America continued their strike outside of the Warner Bros studio in Burbank, California, they also received a surprise visit from Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav.

Flavor Flav brought a bunch of pizzas for the writers on strike and went into an impromptu playback of Public Enemy’s song “Fight the Power,” which fits the atmosphere and the call of the strike greatly.

Flavor has several ties with Hollywood as he has appeared on some reality TV shows before. He was joined by Jason Sudeikis and the Ted Lasso team, Quinta Brunson and the Abbott Elementary crew, and many others as they stood by the writers while the strike continued in Hollywood.
