Tom Cruise isn’t my favorite person, I admit it. But the thing is – I can admit that I don’t disagree with him going off on the subject of Covid. People taking it seriously is absolutely important and so many jobs are at stake.
We’re watching a world shut down at every turn due to the pandemic, which makes it even more important to pay attention to all of the guidelines set up by the CDC and health organizations around the world.
The Sun (which I know is a shitty site and I shouldn’t be reading, but Tom Cruise going off, I admit, I went there) published audio of Tom going off due to people not following Covid regulations.

The transcript of the audio –
We want the gold standard. They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us! Because they believe in us and what we’re doing!
I’m on the phone with every fucking studio at night, insurance companies, producers, and they’re looking at us and using us to make their movies. We are creating thousands of jobs you motherfuckers.
I don’t ever want to see it again, ever! And if you don’t do it you’re fired, if I see you do it again you’re fucking gone. And if anyone in this crew does it – that’s it, and you too and you too. And you, don’t you ever fucking do it again.
That’s it! No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their fucking homes because our industry is shut down. It’s not going to put food on their table or pay for their college education.
That’s what I sleep with every night. The future of this fucking industry! So I’m sorry I am beyond your apologies. I have told you and now I want it and if you don’t do it you’re out. We are not shutting this fucking movie down! Is it understood?
If I see it again you’re fucking gone — and you are — so you’re going to cost him his job, if I see it on the set you’re gone and you’re gone.
That’s it. Am I clear?
Do you understand what I want? Do you understand the responsibility that you have? Because I will deal with your reason. And if you can’t be reasonable and I can’t deal with your logic, you’re fired. That’s it. That is it.
I trust you guys to be here. That’s it. That’s it guys. Have a little think about it. . .[inaudible].
He has a point and I am not sure I disagree. Delivery is up for debate, but like I don’t even know what to say about that.
What do you think about Tom’s rant?
