Days of Our Lives News: Albert Alarr Thinks Race Has Something To Do With His Firing

Apparently, Albert Alarr was such a terror to work with that there were many people who refused to be in the same room as him. He made the show’s cast and crew a living hell. As many fans know by now, there’s an investigation going on over Albert’s sexual misconduct allegations and the toxic work environment that he’s supposedly created. In a petition that went around last week, some of the DOOL actors said they wouldn’t go back to work until something was done about the situation. One insider even said of Albert, “He became much more tyrannical, I think he became much more aware of his unilateral power, and that Ken wasn’t going to be involved in decision-making. And I think [Alarr] took the ball and ran with it, and I think it’s ruined the show.”

Well now Albert is telling his side of the story. In a brief statement, he says there was a pressure campaign to get rid of him. Albert also hinted that race had something to do with it. He said, “To be clear, this whole situation stems from the animus of just two individuals. Those individuals, at a time of industry-wide cutbacks and economic uncertainty, have been relentlessly angling for greater pay and increased influence on the show, and, it appears, believed that their best strategy to get it was to play on vile stereotypes in order to bring down a Black man in a position of power.”

DOOL: An Investigation Is Still Underway

He continued, “I will always be proud of being the only Black director/producer in daytime soap operas. And, while I am devastated by the manner of my departure, I will always treasure my years at ‘Days of Our Lives’ and wish the wildly talented cast and crew the very best for the future.”

So far the producers of Days of Our Lives have not made any additional comments about the matter.
