If there was one villain of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, it would have to be David Zaslav. Before they start in the spring, the big boss of Warner Bros. Discovery had already become infamous for bad and/or mean creative decisions with Bond. (He even did another one right after the last one ended..) Once the industry shut down, it was Zaslav who became even more hissy than Bob Iger and Ted Sarandos. Now, the Wile E. Coyote of media oligarchs has found another inventive way to intervene.
As if caught by The Hollywood ReporterThe New York Times has a new profile of Zaslav, which is far more diplomatic than the scathing GQ editorial that was infamously removed. This is not to say that Zaslav does not hang himself with his own rope. Indeed, at one point he discusses the WGA strike, which began in May and became the second longest work stoppage in the guild’s history. But judging by Zaslav’s comments, it probably didn’t need to last that long…or even happen at all.
“They are right about almost everything,” Zaslav openly admitted. “What if we pay too much? I have never regretted paying too much for a great talent or asset.
Did Zaslav always feel this way? Was he the outlier among the AMPTP gang? Is he just saying this now, in an attempt to revise history? Maybe he was so shaken by to be booed during a keynote speech shortly after the WGA strike began.
Regardless, the comments were infuriating. Although some found themselves agreeing with Zaslav on one point.
Some argued that Zaslav’s comments didn’t make him look intelligent.
Saying this now, after the WGA and SAG-AFTRA have been on strike for over 100 days, makes him seem stupider, more twisted and more corrupt. For example, you said that you have no problem overpaying talent and that they don’t even ask to be overpaid but only to be paid fairly. https://t.co/E9bSuQdoQN

Others couldn’t believe he seemed to say the quiet part out loud.
That’s really funny to hear him say after him and his months of fighting tooth and nail against the aforementioned workers lol
Obviously this guy is just trying to do damage control to the already horrible reputation he and his company now have. https://t.co/DKXBuG8wqm

In fact, it’s so funny that he suddenly turned a new leaf on this immediately after the government investigation reports into his tax deduction for money laundering like hmmmm, what prompted this, I wonder https://t.co/zj8msAEpTP

Others, however, blamed him for all the lives he and other AMTPT members wasted playing hardball.
As much as I appreciate it, I can’t help but think of the lives that were hampered, even ruined, by the fact that this deal could have taken a week to close – and it could have happened last April. https://t.co/mHLbpFjEY7

Oh, thanks buddy. We all make mistakes. Mine aren’t slowly bankrupting thousands of people in six months, but it’s our differences that make this beautiful friendship work. https://t.co/DdUxHt8FX8

It took 6 months and losing millions of dollars for this man fed with a silver spoon to say “oopsie”.

And of course there were jokes.
Maybe Zaslav just needed to distract people after being criticized for I’m trying to bury an already finished film that everyone wants to see and who would have made tons of money for his company. Let’s hope none of the shareholders read the news.
