The Writers Guild of America West has kicked out a member for allegedly writing for “Fashion Police” during the guild’s six-month strike against the show.

The board of directors voted to expel Larry Amoros, for providing “scab” writing services to E! Network’s series and fined him $14,000.

Amoros responded by issuing a statement that he had already resigned from the union by the time he was expelled and accused the guild of running a “smear campaign.”

“How can the WGA throw me out of a club I am not a member of?” Amoros said. “Next week, I look forward to being expelled from the NFL for not being a football player.”

The announcement comes a week after the WGA and Joan Rivers resolved their dispute over the “Fashion Police” host writing on a non-union show.

Rivers had been charged with violating the WGA’s rule for allegedly writing on a struck program. »
