Adam Sandler's Halloween movie "Hubie Halloween" is currently available to stream on Netflix and while it's getting decent reviews from fans, it's also caused its fair share of controversy.

News anchor Alaina Pinto of WHDH Channel 7 News in Boston had a small cameo in the film as a news anchor dressed as "Batman's" Harley Quinn.

Unfortunately, the appearance cost Pinto her job with the network.

Pinto took to Twitter to explain that she "violated her contract" by appearing in the movie. As a result, she was let go from Channel 7 News.

"Hubie Halloween" has been the most-watched film on Netflix since its debut on October 7.
