​Adam Sandler Flick Hubie Halloween Gets News Anchor Fired From Her Job

​Adam Sandler Flick Hubie Halloween Gets News Anchor Fired From Her Job

A news anchor in Boston has been fired from her job after appearing in new Adam Sandler flick Hubie Halloween, saying her cameo was a violation of her contract.

Alaina Pinto, formerly an anchor for Channel 7 News, featured in the film as a newsreader on a fictional morning show called Wake Up Boston, reporting on local Halloween festivities while dressed up as Harley Quinn as part of a gag between her and other broadcasters.

However, since the film dropped on Netflix earlier this month, Pinto has announced that her position at Channel 7 News has been terminated after she 'mistakenly violated' her contract.

Sharing a statement on Twitter, Pinto wrote: "Hi Friends! I have some news to share... Earlier this week I was let go from 7 News. 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.

"In doing so, I mistakenly violated my contract with the station and I understand why management unfortunately chose to terminate me. I am deeply disappointed and saddened, and I hoped this would not be how things evolved.

"Thanks to all my wonderful 7 News viewers and my supportive and great colleagues at the station. Reporting the news to you every morning was an honor and a privilege. I promise to stay in touch and keep you updated on the next chapter - the future is bright!"

Fans Reckon Hubie Halloween Confirms Adam Sandler Cinematic Universe

Advert

LADbible has contacted Channel 7 News for comment.

Hubie Halloween bills itself as a 'hilarious family film', which centres on Hubie Dubois (Sandler), a simple soul who just wants to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves safely at Halloween - usually a thankless task for poor Hubie, but this year is different.

The official synopsis reads: "Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) thanklessly spends every Halloween making sure the residents of his hometown, Salem, celebrate safely and play by the rules.

"But this year, an escaped criminal and a mysterious new neighbor have Hubie on high alert. When people start disappearing, it's up to Hubie to convince the police (Kevin James, Kenan Thompson) and townsfolk that the monsters are real, and only he can stop them."

Alongside Sandler, the movie also features the likes of Ray Liotta, Steve Buscemi, Julie Bowen and Maya Rudolph - and Pinto, of course.

It's available to watch on Netflix now.
