Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds Shares His Wish For The Writers At Strike
Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds recently expressed his support for the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strikers in an interaction with TMZ. He shared his support and solidarity with the striking writers by giving a surprise performance.
Last week, the WGA, a group that advocates for the rights of writers in the entertainment industry, began a strike demanding higher pay and improved working conditions. The strike took place outside the Netflix headquarters in Hollywood. Reynolds and bandmate Daniel Wayne Sermon joined the picket line and surprised the striking writers with a show of support.
Instead of carrying picket signs or giving speeches, Reynolds and Sermon expressed their support through music. They set up an impromptu mini-concert on the Netflix picket line, performing acoustic versions of some of their hits, including ‘Radioactive’ and ‘Whatever It Takes.’
Dan Reynolds’ words in support of the writers at strike read:
“We just want fair compensation for people who put in the time and are incredible creators. We have many friends who are writers. The writers are the ones who make all of the magic happen. My greatest joy comes from these people — the writers.”
Dan’s statement showed a clear understanding and appreciation of writers’ work and a call for fair recognition and reward for their creativity. The rocker, who has always been an artist to stand up for justice, showed a refreshing way to express solidarity with the WGA strikers through music, symbolizing unity and commonality.
