The daily gossip: Melissa Barrera fired from ‘Scream 7’ over Israel comments, Daryl Hall reportedly obtains restraining order against John Oates, and more


1. Melissa Barrera fired from ‘Scream 7’ over Israel comments

“Scream” is ghosting the face of the franchise. Melissa Barrera has been fired from “Scream 7” over her social media posts about the Israel-Hamas war. The actress, who plays the lead character of the new “Scream” films, has been critical of Israel throughout the conflict, including by posting that “Gaza is currently being treated like a concentration camp,” and “THIS IS GENOCIDE & ETHNIC CLEANSING.” Spyglass, the production company behind “Scream,” told Variety it has “zero tolerance for antisemitism or the incitement of hate in any form, including false references to genocide, ethnic cleansing, Holocaust distortion or anything that flagrantly crosses the line into hate speech.” In a since-deleted post, “Scream 7” director Christopher Landon wrote, “Everything sucks. Stop yelling. This was not my decision to make.” Meanwhile, Deadline reports Jenna Ortega also won’t return for “Scream 7” because of her “Wednesday” shooting schedule. After “Scream VI” posited that main characters are expendable in movie franchises, it seems the follow-up may put that theory to the test. The Hollywood Reporter, Variety

2. Daryl Hall reportedly obtains restraining order against John Oates

You’ve heard of Batman vs. Superman, but get ready for Hall vs. Oates. Daryl Hall is suing his Hall & Oates bandmate John Oates for alleged breach of contract, TMZ reports. Hall has also reportedly obtained a restraining order against Oates. The court file is sealed, though, meaning there aren’t any details about what the lawsuit concerns. But TMZ speculated that perhaps “Hall thinks Oates has no right to sing their songs during his concerts,” or they could be fighting over royalties. Either way, when Hall appeared on Bill Maher’s “Club Random” podcast last year, he pointedly corrected Maher when the comedian referred to Oates as his partner. “He’s my business partner,” Hall insisted. “He’s not my creative partner.” Hall also told the Los Angeles Times in 2022 that being a duo is “very annoying.” Say it isn’t so!
