Striking Fashion Police Writers Speak on Joan Rivers’ Absence of Support
The WGA West YouTube channel posted this video this morning of all the striking Fashion Police writers commenting on star of Fashion Police Joan Rivers’ complete lack of backing them in trying to get fairly compensated from E! Entertainment.
In case you were wondering and it wasn’t obvious from the video, not much that was being disputed has been resolved from almost four months ago.
The Fashion Police Writers Will Be Picketing This Thursday
Their benefit at the Laugh Factory went off without a hitch and yet the writers of E!’s Fashion Police are still on strike. They’ll be picketing tomorrow at 5750 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA from 11:30AM-12:30PM and they’re calling on all who are in support of them to march and rally with them tomorrow.
So, There Was No Sabotage at The Fashion Police Writers’ Strike Benefit
Rumors that sabotage of the benefit for the Fashion Police writers currently on strike have been circulating over the past few days.
However, we attended the show last night at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood and no such hijinks occurred and it was just a packed room with a crowd that simply had a great time watching Bryan Cook, Eliza Skinner, Todd Masterson, Dante, Baron Vaughn, Bobcat Goldthwait, and more.
Though, it turns out that while it was indeed true that E! executives did purchase a majority of the tickets, pretty much no one showed up on their behalf to not laugh or whatever was planned, which means the crowd in attendance had paid individually at the door to get in.
Thus, the benefit generated much more money than originally possible that went to the writers that needed it.
