Megan Fox has come under fire after posting a picture of her Halloween costume and tagging SAG-AFTRA.
In the run up to the spooky season, SAG-AFTRA - the union representing actors currently striking against some of Hollywood's biggest studios - gave a warning to actors over their costume plans for this year.
However, Megan Fox has seemingly gone against the instructions of the union and people aren't happy about it.
SAG-AFTRA released a statement on costumes earlier this month.
The guide reads: "Let's use our collective power to send a loud and clear message to our struck employers that we will not promote their content without a fair contract.
"Choose costumes inspired by generalized characters and figures (ghost, zombie, spider, etc).
"Don't post photos of costumes inspired by struck content to social media [either]."
Despite this, yesterday (Saturday, 28 October), Fox took to Instagram to share a series of posts of herself and also Machine Gun Kelly dressed up for the annual Casamigos Tequila Halloween party in Beverly Hills - the pair wearing coordinating Kill Bill inspired costumes.
Fox wore a costume inspired by the character of Gogo Yubari, donning a schoolgirl outfit, platform boots, knee-length socks and with fake blood leaking out of her eyes.
MGK wore a yellow and black tracksuit jumpsuit ensemble as The Bride, also with fake blood on his face, and blood splattered on his clothing.
Fox's caption to the series of images reads: "@sagaftra". And followers aren't happy about it.
One Instagram user commented: "Didn't SAG-AFTRA ask its members to NOT dress as movie characters?"
"Girl, you did not just tag sagftra," another wrote.
The debate has even travelled to Reddit, a user named 'IdioticHookers' sharing a photograph from Fox's post alongside the caption: "Megan Fox tags SAG-AFTRA on Instagram Halloween post," to r/popculturechat.
The post has seen an influx of responses, one user named u/ Impressive_Hope6985 writing: "This is such an insane thing to do, because she was practically ousted from the industry in the past. And she just started having a comeback why one earth would she jeopardize that over something so petty."
"Celebrities getting super defensive about what type of costumes they weren't 'allowed' to wear on Halloween is something that I can't really comprehend," another user named u/ Traditional_Maybe_80 added.
A third - u/ FukLysander - commented: "Has she even been on the picket lines at all or can she only muster this rebellious spirit for a stupid Halloween costume?"
And a fourth named u/amomentintimebro responded: "No she hasn’t been to the picket lines as far as I can find.
"Sorry but actors bitching about sag asking them not to dress up is really getting my goat today.
"So many more people have given up way way more than a Halloween costume during a strike….i fully support the actors but the nerve to b***h about sag stifling their Halloween costumes when others have it so much worse is really hitting a nerve tonight tbh. Some of these people need to get a grip."
UNILAD has contacted Megan Fox's representatives for comment.
