Megan Fox, the renowned actress, has found herself at the center of controversy after violating SAG-AFTRA's Halloween costume rules. The union had advised its members to avoid dressing up as studio-trademarked characters to support an ongoing strike. However, Fox and her fiancé, Machine Gun Kelly, attended a Halloween party dressed as characters from the Quentin Tarantino film Kill Bill – a move that drew the ire of several industry peers.
Actress Lisa Ann Walter criticized Fox's actions, accusing her of posturing while others work tirelessly for a fair deal during the labor strike. Similarly, actress Paige McGarvin expressed disappointment in Fox publicly undermining the union's efforts and harming their negotiating leverage with studios. Batwoman star Ruby Rose pointed out the problematic history surrounding the Harvey Weinstein-produced franchise, questioning the power dynamics between studios and actors.
Social media users also voiced their disapproval, questioning why Fox would be defiant towards a union fighting for fair wages on her behalf. Some suggested that her superstar status makes her immune to the key issues at the heart of the strike, as she would always command a fair wage. The violation of union guidelines further stoked the ongoing debate, with users discussing the deeper meaning behind Fox's actions and the implications of disregarding labor strike efforts.
The controversial Halloween costume, worn by Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, showcased their love for the iconic Tarantino film. The couple arrived at the star-studded Casamigos Halloween party dressed as Gogo Yubari and The Bride, two beloved characters from Kill Bill. The event, hosted by tequila brand Casamigos' founders Rande Gerber and George Clooney, witnessed the couple's rare public appearance since September.
Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, who got engaged in 2020, have been making efforts to reconcile their differences. While their relationship seems stronger, they have not yet begun wedding planning. Megan Fox, previously married to Brian Austin Green, shares three sons with him, while Machine Gun Kelly has a daughter from a previous relationship.
The violation of SAG-AFTRA's Halloween costume rules by Megan Fox has sparked significant backlash within the industry and among fans. The incident raises important discussions about the solidarity of actors during labor strikes and the influence of high-profile individuals in driving change within the entertainment industry.
