According to Chris Stephens, the production studio took to the trimmers and pruned trees on sidewalks outside of its Los Angeles studios today (July 17), when the temperature was north of 90 degrees.
Intentionally or not, the trees happen to run along the sidewalk where picketers are striking.
âQuick shoutout to the good people at @UniversalPics for trimming the trees that gave our picket line shade right before a 90+ degree week,â Stephens wrote.

Los Angeles has reached out to Universal Pictures for comment. »
