Keegan-Michael Key Shows Support for Striking Harvard Workers
Comedian Keegan-Michael Key is lending his star power to help support food service workers who are on strike at Harvard.
The Key & Peele and Don’t Think Twice actor was spotted holding a sign during the ongoing protests in Cambridge earlier this week. Unite Here Local 26, the union which represents the university’s striking cafeteria employees, posted a photo on Facebook of Key showing his support for the cause.

The comic is currently in town filming his new Netflix series Friends from College, which also stars Cobie Smulders. Created by a pair of Harvard alums, the show follows a group of former Crimsons who are trying to figure things out now that they’re in their 40s, according to Variety.
Key isn’t the first big name who has offered support to the striking workers this month.
Last week, actor Ben Stiller took time out of filming his latest comedy Brad’s Status in order to show solidarity with the disgruntled Harvard employees. Sen. Elizabeth Warren stopped by the protest as well and took photos with the workers.
