#GabrielleUnion is no stranger to bringing fourth awareness with the utilization of her own platform upon topics that many within the public eye steer away from. Within her latest stride of due diligence Union has advocated for Black actors who have been hit hard financially during the current #COVID19 crisis!

Within an Instagram live conversation with model #SharamDiniz Union speaks on the domino effect of productions shutdowns within Hollywood, reports Essence Magazine.

For all of the Oprah [Winfrey]’s and the people who have just a lot a lot a lot a lot of money, most of us are one or two checks away from not having money to pay for all of our things, you know what I mean?” states Union. “So this stoppage of work and money is impacting marginalized celebrities the most.”

She continues, “All those influencers you see…who seem to be everywhere, they may not have a lot of liquid income.’ “You can’t charge your rent. You have to pay your rent.”

Reports read that the average Hollywood actor made roughly around $44,000 in 2016. Which we imagine to not differ that much within the last four years or so.

Union took to Twitter to clear up any misconceptions that may or may not have arisen from the interview by stating that’s she’s the not comparing struggles. Implementing that she is speaking from her own experience where she can fully verify details from every level of how the Hollywood game goes when it comes down to being paid. While also noting that “ Fame doesn’t mean you have acquired wealth.”
