The writers on Joan Rivers’ “Fashion Police” have had lots of practice taking swipes at big-name stars. Now they’re using that expertise to go after their own boss.
In a three-minute video called “Dear Joan: Can We Talk?” the disgruntled writers come down on Rivers for not taking their side in a labor dispute with E! television network. In April the writers went on strike, “seeking the basics: health insurance, a pension plan, and fair pay consistent with industry standards,” according to the video.
“Joan Rivers is not just a star but a member of the Writers Guild and that she won’t support her fellow Writers Guild members is astonishing,” one writer says. “To me it’s just a basic fairness issue.”
