Gage made headlines in November of 2020 after he shared a clip of a director, later identified as Tristram Shapeero, belittling Gage’s living conditions during an audition via Zoom, unaware that Gage could hear.

Gage posted a clip of the exchange online with the caption, ‘psa if you’re a s*** talking director make sure to mute ur s*** on zoom mtgings.’

Shapeero was heard saying, ‘These poor people live in these tiny apartments. I’m looking at his background and he’s got his TV.’

Gage said in response, ‘I know it’s a s***ty apartment, that’s why give me this job so I can get a better one,’ after which Shapeero said he was sorry for the remarks.

Shapeero later penned a piece for Deadline again apologizing to Gage and clarifying his words in the viral clip.

‘First and foremost I offer Mr. Gage a sincere and unvarnished apology for my offensive words, my unprofessional behavior during the audition and for not giving him the focus and attention he deserved,’ he said. ‘I was using the word “poor” in the sense of deserving sympathy, as opposed to any economic judgment.

‘My words were being spoken from a genuine place of appreciation for what the actors were having to endure, stuck in confined spaces, finding it within themselves to give a role-winning performance under these conditions.’
