He had already postponed his performances in June in favor of the authors and actors who had called for a strike against the Screen Actors Guild organization.

Snoop Dogg has reportedly been the actors and writers’ strongest backer during the current strike, according to Daily Mail. He sent a food truck to the picketers gathered outside Paramount Studios as a sign of support.

SAG-AFTRA strike

The majority of actors in American cinema and television productions are represented by the SAG-AFTRA union.

In July, thousands of screenwriters joined the Writers Guild of America (WGA) in a strike, demanding better compensation and job security and bringing attention to inequalities in the film and television industries that have gotten worse with the rise of streaming.

The simultaneous strikes by writers and actors are unprecedented in their more than 60-year history.

Members of SAG-AFTRA are requesting a new contract with the AMPTP because they believe it needs to take into consideration the hazards posed by cutting edge digital technologies as well as the financial realities of the streaming revolution.
