once again, we are given a glimpse into how the people who fund and run the theater industry actually regard all of the workers they employ. For those who have been following this months-long conversation, there's a straight line from (and I am paraphrasing) "Actors don't need two days off a week, they should be happy to work", to "Workers should accept permanent pay cuts even while the executive class takes home millions", to "You can drop a computer on your employee as long as you don't drop the N word while you're doing it, that's not assault, just bad behavior".

And sadly, NewtonUK is right. No one is going to fire Scott Rudin, and audiences won't let this stop them from seeing Hugh Jackman in "The Music Man" because arts industry workers are disposable, but by God, if you take away their water bottles they're going to rant and rave about what a monster you are.
