This has also prompted people to pull up old clips of Zach that they find problematic – including the Joe Rogan An interview he gave a few years ago, where they talked about Elliott Page And Jordan Peterson.
of course, jokes He also began to gloat in regards to WBD and how execs there might react to this news… On the face of it, it looks like a PR nightmare – especially with “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” on the horizon and the press tour that will no doubt come with it.
Welp, Zack caught it all up and tried to explain… He tweeted a link to a 2009 Department of Justice press release addressing a fraud case that Pfizer was involved in at the time, when they agreed to pay a $2.3 billion settlement. He says that’s what he was referring to.
