The Writers Guild of America West has kicked out a member for allegedly writing for “Fashion Police” during the guild’s six-month strike against the show.
The board of directors voted to expel Larry Amoros, for providing “scab” writing services to E! Network’s series and fined him $14,000.
The announcement comes a week after the WGA and Joan Rivers resolved their dispute over the “Fashion Police” host writing on a non-union show.
Rivers had been charged with violating the WGA’s rule for allegedly writing on a struck program. The “Fashion Police” writers went on strike against the E! Network on April 17.
