If you were planning on hitting up the Fashion Police writers rally, you’re too late!
The rally took place today outside of E!’s headquarters, and the picketers wrapped up around 12:30 this afternoon (as planned).
In the morning, strikers took up the HIGHlarious chant of:
“We’re still poor, you’re still rich, give us back our paycheck bitch!”
LOLz!! Clever and appropriate! Definitely got the point accross.
There were around 150 picketers at the peak of the rally. Bryan Cook, one of the writers involved, addressed the crowd along with anyone who cared to listen.
Here’s a glimpse of what he covered:
Writers over at E!'s Fashion Police have been on strike since April 17th…
THIS Thursday (May 23), the FP scribes are holding a rally/picket outside of E! headquarters in Los Angeles.
They are inviting any and all who wish to support their call for fair wages, compensation for unpaid overtime, AND their bid to join the Writers Guild of America.
Wanna show YOUR love for the writers of your fave fashion critique show?!
Find out ALL the deets about the picket/rally …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Jimmy Kimmel has a HIGHlarious portion of his show, which consists of celebrities reading mean tweets written about them (stars like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry, etc.). Except most of the tweets…are actually written by the writers of the show. Sadface.
It looks like the first few segments he aired did indeed consist of mostly real tweets, but after that, the amount of ‘realness’ quickly decreased. The most recent episodes contain tweets that are all totally FAKED.
This is slightly sad, because it kind of ruins the entire point of the segment, but we will admit that it doesn’t stop the HIGHlarity!! Meaning that we will still watch celebrities reading mean things about themselves aloud even knowing it's all totes made up.
And hey, it’s not like those tweets couldn’t exist! As Jimmy points out, people tweet mean stuff about celebs ALL THE TIME.
Maybe it hurts the stars' feelings less to know that they’re reading a writer’s fictional work instead of a non-fan’s true feelings, ha!!

That's one way to stick it to the BOZZ!
Writers for E!'s clothing critique show Fashion Police are attempting to garner HUNDREDS of dollars worth of unpaid overtime that they claim is owed to them by the network AND Joan Rivers' production company…
Well, it seems the stylish scribes are NOT f*cking around and have decided to STRIKE!
