The striking “America’s Next Top Model” writers have disavowed any connection with the recent anonymous flier campaign against Dawn Ostroff, CW prexy of entertainment.
“We have always been more than willing to own up to the things we did, but this isn’t one of them,” said Michelle Mills in a statement Tuesday on behalf of the scribes. “Having pointless activities pinned on us will not help us rejoin the workforce.”
Fliers blasting Ostroff — and giving her home address — materialized in her Brentwood neighborhood late last week. The missives did not include any indication of authorship.
The WGA West, which has been actively backing the writers via pickets for two months, issued a statement over the weekend denying any connection to the fliers. The scribes walked out in July over the CW’s refusal to give in to their demand for a WGA contract.
“We are not picketing anymore, nor are we engaging in any further strike activities,” Mills said.
