One of the first to reach out was actor David Arquette. Arquette, who's best known for roles in Scream and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, shared a similar firing he suffered.
"I once had a scene with Anthony Michael Hall that I was the lead in and after the scene the director replaced me with Anthony Michael Hall," he said.
The actor is presumably referring to the independent film Something About Her, which saw Arquette get recast at the last minute.
Hayes seemed to appreciate the sentiment, replying "Oh man. This business." She also added a grimacing emoji for good measure.prevnext
