A local news anchor has been fired for portraying her real occupation in the fictional movie “Hubie Halloween”.

Alaina Pinto’s job as a local news anchor for 7News in Boston was terminated after she appeared in Netflix’s seasonal Adam Sandler movie.

“Earlier this week I was let go from 7 News,” Pinto began her three-part address on Twitter. “I participated in a cameo in the recently released Netflix movie by Adam Sandler, ‘Hubie Halloween’.”

“In doing so, I mistakenly violated my contract with the station and I understand why management unfortunately chose to terminate me,” she continued. “I am deeply disappointed and saddened, and I hoped this would not be how things evolved.”
