The outrage to this was *wild*.
How dare she pause a (Disney) production to celebrate the success of another (Disney) production? How much money is she costing DISNEY? Who does she think she is? Such a diva!
Let’s speed run through the other Zegler moments that the internet had an overwhelming problem with.
“What made you wanna step into this world of DC heroes?” she was asked at the premiere of her second-ever film, Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
“I needed a job,” she replied. “I’m being so serious.” Wow she is so disrespectful.
She later told Variety her Snow White remake would differ from the original storyline, because the original storyline was quite literally from 1937 and we’ve progressed, only somewhat, since then. How dare she come for an 80-year-old character we don’t even really care about.
She joined a picket line during the SAG-AFTRA strike and said she deserved to be paid when people streamed her movies. The AUDACITY.
Snow White‘s release date was pushed from March 2024 to March 2025. It’s her fault. Those in charge were obviously concerned about what she could say during a press tour. The impact of multiple strikes? CGI concerns? General post-production setbacks? No no no, couldn’t be.
You get the idea.
Zegler has not been able to say, or do, anything right — and it has been that way since the very moment she became a public figure. Based on the evidence, it boils down to the fact that she doesn’t speak in the PR platitudes we expect of celebrities, gives off enthusiastic theatre kid energy, and is a headstrong, passionate, successful young woman.
