Drew Barrymore Takes ‘Full Responsibility’ For The Decision To Resume Her Show
The actress Drew Barrymore apologized and took full responsibility for her decision to resume her daytime talk show ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’. On September 15, the ‘Poison Ivy’ actress took to Instagram giving a public apology amidst the backlash and the agitation from the protestors.
The 48-year-old confessed how she knows that nothing can make the situation okay. “I wanted to own a decision so that it wasn’t a PR, protected situation. And I would just take full responsibility for my actions,” a teary-eyed Barrymore apologized. “I just want everyone to know my intentions have never been in a place to upset or hurt anyone. It’s not who I am,” she added. She continued to apologize to the writers and the union and shared how she took the decision from a very tough spot.
Barrymore’s Reason On Why She Wants To Resume Her Talk Show
In her post that acknowledged the resuming of the show, Drew Barrymore explained her intentions for restarting the show. “I want to be there to provide what writers do so well, which is a way to bring us together or help us make sense of the human experience,” she wrote. She emphasized the same in her latest video message. “I wanted to do this because as I said, this is bigger than me. And there are other people’s jobs on the line,” she said in the apology.
The show had initially started during the pandemic. The global crisis didn’t hinder the show. The actress wants her show to be there for people in times of need. “So, I want to just put one foot in front of the other and make a show that’s there for people regardless of anything else that’s happening in the world because that’s when I think we all need something that wants to be there, being very realistic in very realistic times. So that is my why,” she said concluding her apology.
