These are difficult times because for a whole year we have concentrated to be involved in protecting ourselves from COVID-19; a deadly disease. Many businesses including the entertainment business has had it’s prolonged pause not to endanger the lives of so many on movie sets. For many and not the leading actors they’re depending on their jobs on movie sets to go to work to a physical location and film collaboratively. Because I scan for news in 50 or more different places I came upon this story that exposes the pressure people are under.

Listen to Tom Cruise yell at crew who broke COVID rules: Full rant audio
It’s not easy to listen to because Tom Cruise sounds like a very angry parent yelling at these mature men and women to adhere to the rules of mitigation for COVID-19 and wear a mask. I know there are millions of very hard working Americans who are hardly paying attention to the film industry these days. Especially because so many in the movie industry have sided with mainstream media who has treated the President very unfairly and don’t care for Americans who aren’t wealthy and feel for the first time in a long time there is a President for the American people.
So the division is there emotionally, sometimes very abusively and for sure physically. You can bet that with tension and stress so high we are internalizing these feelings of hopelessness, being alone and extremely worried about putting food on the table to feed our families. I personally didn’t agree with Mr Cruise’s choice to speak to grown men and women who are really not his employees. He could have made a choice to handle it differently and if he is on the phone with all these movie industry and movie studio executives then maybe they should pay people to remind people to wear there masks.~Natalie
In a update five staffers on Tom Cruise’s new movie have quit after they apparently felt it was mission impossible to continue working for him when he launched a second rant on set, according to a report.
The first outburst was big but things haven’t calmed since. Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked,” a source told the UK outlet
But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him. In the end, he’s the one who carries the can,” the source added
