Kim Kardashian Slammed for Tweeting from ‘American Horror Story’ Set Amid Writers’ Strike

Kim Kardashian tweeted from the set of “American Horror Story” — and those in solidarity with the Writers Guild of America were not too thrilled.

The reality star was slammed on social media Friday when she asked her followers “what [they were] all up to” during her “time between shots.”

A comedy writer replied that he had been “striking in support of [his] union,” while another added that they were “reading about the WGA strike,” which began in May.

“As somebody currently cast on a scripted show, you should be standing in solidarity with the WGA, because without writers, you wouldn’t even have a show to be on set for,” a third wrote.

Many others called Kardashian a “scab,” which is a union member who refuses to strike or returns to work before a strike has ended, for crossing picket lines.

On May 2, 11,500 screenwriters began their protest, blasting leading companies for “devaluing the profession of writing … from their refusal to guarantee any level of weekly employment in episodic television, to the creation of a ‘day rate’ in comedy variety, to their stonewalling on free work for screenwriters and on AI for all writers.”

Kardashian, 42, has yet to respond to backlash. Page Six has reached out to her rep for comment.

The Hulu personality announced her role on “AHS” in April. Her casting on the horror anthology series was then slammed by Patti LuPone, Sharon Stone and more stars.

While on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” the Broadway legend, 74, accused the “Kardashians” star of “taking a role away from actors.”

Stone, for her part, wrote via Instagram in April that she and her colleagues have “studied and suffered” for their art, unlike Kardashian.

The following month, the Skims founder clarified in a Variety interview from the Met Gala that she was “of course” taking acting lessons before filming.

“It’s really fun to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new and grow,” she gushed in May. “I’m so excited for the experience. … I like to challenge myself.”

Kardashian has previously acted in minor roles, from the voice of Delores in “Paw Patrol”to Ava in “Temptations: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.”

The upcoming installment of “American Horror Story,” titled “Delicate,” is adapted from Danielle Valentine’s novel “Delicate Condition.”

They should be mad at production for continuing — not (just) Kim. You’d be surprised how many of your favorite actors and actresses are quietly on set amid the ongoing WGA strike. We’ve seen quite a few with our own eyes…
