Melissa Barrera reportedly dropped from Scream 7 over pro-Palestine comments

Recommended Posts

Deadline has confirmed that actress Melissa Barrera has been dropped from Spyglass Media’s Scream VII. 

Sources say that this is due to the reposts in her Instagram stories which have been perceived as anti-Semitic. 

There have been screen captures of her IG stories online. See below.
 


A month ago, Barrera posted on her IG story a placard that read “I too come from a colonized country” with a Mexican flag logo. “Palestine WILL be free” it continued to read with an italicized quote “they tried to bury us, they didn’t know we were seeds.”

Didn’t believe this at first, but it appears to be true. This is extremely unfair to Melissa, and upon reading all that she’s said it is insidious to paint anything she’s said as anti-Semitic.

 

I’m an absolutely huge fan of Scream and I already didn’t like their refusal to pay Neve, but this really crosses a line. Can’t imagine seeing the next movie unless this decision is reversed.

We lost scream2

Yeah I agree. Not sure I can continue seeing the movie after this but what I wanna know is what are they gonna do if they don’t bring her back? Are they gonna kill her offscreen? Will someone else take over? So many questions

Ironically, my guess would be that they get Neve back and center it around Sidney rip4 That's about the only thing they could do make a film that feels at all complete, and they would probably have Sam just stay offscreen and be established to have beaten the Loomis demons.

What a shitty way to end Sam’s story. I hope Neve says no and backs them in a corner. They either bring Sam back or kill the series.

I agree. I can confidently say it’s Sam or I’m not seeing it. I’d still love to see Melissa come back and I will continue to pull for her but I won’t blame her if she can’t bring herself to work with Spyglass again - if that’s the case, then I hope they lose the rights and we eventually get a movie with Melissa, Jenna, and Neve down the line from some other studio tay3 

 

In hindsight, it’s kind of nice that Scream VI ends on a fairly happy note, all things considered dead2

They really ruined the Scream plot nicki5

The interesting thing is even before all this happened with the two leads leaving, the original creative team responsible for the last two films weren't returning.

I don't think there was a ever a strong plan for a trilogy and Jenna was never locked in for the third film with early scripts had her as a smaller supporting role.

I think they did about as much planning as the newest Halloween trilogy they've just been more consistent in quality so far and gotten lucky aretha1
