Melissa, who starred as Sam Carpenter in the slasher franchise, was dropped from the upcoming film after making pro-Palestinian comments.
The actor said she "would not be surprised to get a call" with an invitation to rejoin the slasher legacy.
"Silence is not an option for me," the Mexican star told her Instagram followers.
The filmmaker deleted the post shortly afterward, but not before his succinct message was captured for posterity by media outlets.
The former Friends star and her teenage daughter posed together on the red carpet at the event in New York.
