Shots have been seriously fired!
On Thursday, Pajiba.com published an open letter from an alleged former Warner Bros. employee, and it is SCATHING!
The author only identifies themselves as Gracie Law — which is most likely a reference to Kim Cattrall's character from Big Trouble in Little China – in an apparent effort to keep the writer's true identity hidden.

In the note, the ex WB worker SLAMS CEO Kevin Tsujihara over his 2014 decision to lay off ten percent of the studio's staff.
The disgruntled former employee explained how upsetting the firing process was, writing:
"Every morning I woke up with a pit in my stomach, because I assumed that would be the day I lost my job. Every day I saw someone packing up their desk, or carrying a box to their car. I can not describe to you the relief I felt when my department was told we were safe, or the guilt I felt afterwards walking through the halls of my office with that relief."
But, they admit that the worst part was the memo Kevin had sent to his staff about the job cuts, explaining the layoffs would allow Warner to afford to continue working with big directors, actors, and producers.
"At Warner Bros., we work with the world's most extraordinary storytellers, and our focus has always been to provide the creative environment and financial resources they need to realize their vision. Our commitment to that won't change. In fact, we're investing more than ever in our film and television productions."
This really upset the author, who watched about a thousand jobs get slashed, only so the studio could crank out flop after flop.
The ex worker admitted they had started writing the letter back in 2014, but held off on publishing it in the hopes that Suicide Squad would turn out to be a huge success.
But when the antihero flick got panned in reviews, the staffer got PISSED, penning:
