Kim Kardashian gets backlash for crossing picket line amid writers strike
It's safe to assume that the Writers Guild of America won't be keeping up with the 42-year-old reality-star anymore.
Strike captain Warren Leight reported the offense on Twitter, writing, "Sad to report that Kim Kardashian crossed our midtown picket line today."
"Ushered past us into a freight elevator in her chauffeured Escalade. Writers aren’t keeping up, but Kim Krossed Our Line."
Now Leight did clarify in a follow-up tweet that working actors are "required" to act through June 30, which means she is not technically scabbing – that is, breaking the strike.
But, per his post, Kim "has more leverage than others in her position. She didn’t use it."
