Kim Kardashian will no doubt be facing some dicey situations when she appears in the next season of American Horror Story.

Back in April, Kardashian announced that she would be starring in the next series, alongside AHS alumni, Emma Roberts.

Both women shared an Instagram video on their profiles confirming the casting news set to the unsettling broken tune of 'Rock a-Bye Baby'.

They also both included incredibly vague captions, with Emma writing: "This summer…Kim and I are DELICATE", and Kardashian simply including an eye and blood drop emoji.

But it now seems that the reality TV star has found herself in hot water just by being on the set of the show.

On 23 June, Kardashian took to Twitter, writing: "Hi guys! I'm on the set of AHS [American Horror Story] and we have some time between shots. What are all of you up to???"

And needless to say, many weren't pleased that she was working on a television show in the middle of the Writers Guild of America strike and chastised her for 'crossing picket lines'.

The WGA have been on strike since 2 May and are pushing for 'minimum compensation in all areas of media, increased residuals, appropriate TV series-writing compensation from pre- to postproduction' amongst many other things.

Many shows have been put on halt amidst the strike, from late-night TV to big budget shows like Stranger Things.

And Kardashian's tweet saw her hit with some criticism from supporters of the strike.

One remarked: "[I am] sitting at home since no work due to strike. Why is AHS still filming. Show solidarity with our brother and sisters in the wga."

Another supporter wrote: "Are you going to advocate for the striking writers while you’re working on THEIR show, ma’am?

"Here’s an opportunity to use your privilege for a good cause"

While a third wrote: "Getting as many WGA writers to head there and picket."

Kardashian was being a 'scab', a term used by unions to describe workers who cross picket lines during strikes.

And some suggested that Kardashian should 'take a selfie' with the show's call sheet, so that strikers could come protest the studio.

According to Deadline, there had been some 'confusion' about whether or not production had halted on the show during the strike.

In May, a rumour had spread that production had been shut down, which was backed by tweets from WGA protesters who were at the studio.

However, sources reportedly told the outlet that filming did not stop, with Deadline claiming that Teamsters refused to cross the picket fence.

And an AHS crew member also alleged that actors were entering the studio by the back door so that they didn't have to cross the picket line set up at the front of the studio.

UNILAD has contacted Kim Kardashian's reps and 20th Century Fox for comment.
