The Writers Guild of America has issued a harsh statement against statement against the first big name to cross the picket line against their strike. The WGA released this statement against the popular talk show host:
"Ellen's peers who host comedy/variety shows have chosen to support the writers and help them get a fair contract, Ellen has not. Ellen said she loves and supports her writers, but her actions prove otherwise . . . We find it sad that Ellen spent an entire week crying and fighting for a dog that she gave away, yet she couldn't even stand by writers for more than one day."
DeGeneres must think sweeps week is more important than thousands of writers who are standing united for a better contract.
