The director who was apparently arrested for an actor who talks about trash Lukas GageZoom’s apartment on a call from Zoom says he’s not going to apologize for this… because important context is missing. Tristram Shapeero – a British television director best known for directing episodes of “Community,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Veep” – is the guy on the other end of Gage’s instantly infamous online audition.
Shapeero – who apparently thought he was dumb – is heard say, “These poor people live in these little apartments”, referring to where Lukas lived … and continues to criticize his television before realizing that Lukas can hear it. The director now suggests that he did not speak badly and won’t say sorry… but claims a statement will be released on the matter. Funny thing is Shapeero said sorry to Lukas several times on the call when he was arrested, and even added that he was mortified. The actor – known for his roles in “American Vandal” and “Euphoria” – posted the clip saying… “psa: if you are a director who talks shit, be sure to mute your microphone during performances. zooms. “ The incident led to a surge of support in Hollywood for Gage, but the director seems to think everything was overkill.
