Kimiko Glenn (Peni Parker in the Spider-Verse franchise) took to TikTok over the weekend to underline comments she made in a recent New Yorker underlining the alleged pay discrepancy between actors on Orange is the New Black and the lack of residuals on future streams. The Writers Guild of America and Screen Actors Guild are under work stoppage orders due to unsuccessful negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers concerning streaming compensation, AI, and other current concerns.

“People were bartenders still. People had their second jobs still,” Glenn, who played Brook Soso, said in the self-published video. “They were f****** famous as shit, like internationally famous, couldn’t go outside, but had to keep their second jobs because they couldn’t afford to not. We couldn’t afford cabs to set… I deserve to get paid for as many f****** streams as that shit gets.”

@itskimiko @The New Yorker released an article the other day describing many of our cast’s experience on #orangeisthenewblack and the details will astound you. go to my IG for the link 💕💕 #sagaftra #sagaftrastrike #sagstrike #sagaftrastrong ♬ original sound – kimiko

The New Yorker article also makes reference to a previous social media post made by Glenn in which she scans her phone’s camera across a SAG-AFTRA royalty statement for $27.30. OTINB ran on Netflix from 2013 to 2019, and the income statement shows how for appearing in multiple episodes, Glenn now receives two to four cents per episode.
