A local news anchor in Boston, Massachusetts, claimed that she was fired after appearing briefly in Adam Sandler’s new movie “Hubie Halloween”.
Netflix premiered last week and starred Sandler, 54, as a Halloween party coordinator in Salem, Mass.
Anchor Alaina Pinto appeared in the film as a reporter who cast the news in a Harley Quinn costume.
Pinto claimed in a statement on Thursday that she had “mistakenly violated my contract” with WHDH Channel 7 News by appearing on “Hubie Halloween”.

“Thanks to all of the amazing 7 News viewers and my supportive and wonderful colleagues at the station. It was an honor and a privilege to be told the news every morning,” Pinto continued.
