Not because of how awful the movie on Netflix was, but because it violated terms of her contract.
“Earlier this week I was let go from 7 News,” Pinto tweeted Thursday. “I am posting this because I want to be open and honest with all of you. Last year, I participated in a cameo in the recently released Netflix movie by Adam Sandler, ‘Hubie Halloween.’” The film bowed on Oct. 7 on the streamer.
The appearance was a violation of Pinto’s contract, which she said she “mistakenly violated.”
“I am deeply disappointed and saddened, and I hoped this would not be how things evolved,” Pinto wrote. “Thanks to all my wonderful 7 News viewers and my supportive and great colleagues at the station.”
