I fail to see a negative consequence here. In fact, the Hollyweirdos should take it a step further and not only go on permanent strike, but leave the country completely and never come back.

While this will never happen, it is a fairly significant threat. The motion picture industry in the US is responsible for bringing in billions of dollars a year. How will it make Trump look if that money starts going to India or China?

I'm going to an audition if this is the case. Out with the old and in with the new. Drain the Hollywood swamp.
There's money in this.

Hollywood celebrities are not known for being the most modest of people but
when they say that they are speaking on behalf of “all of humanity” and think
that Hollywood is “the base of the entire modern American culture“ it does
sound a little delusional as to how much influence they believe they have.
A group of liberal Hollywood celebrities are threatening a “massive, all-round Hollywood strike” unless Donald Trump resigns. Describing Hollywood as “the base of the entire modern American culture“, the group also claims to be speaking on behalf of “all of humanity.”
“It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around“, a spokesperson for the group told The New York Times.
“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops.”
So on a positive note this might stop any more transformer movies being made which
all of humanity will agree is a good thing.
