Many are wondering why Fran took a personal trip to Italy while SAG-AFTRA is in the middle of negotiations and creeping even closer to the deadline.

Others are calling out Fran for spending time with Kim, who has been criticized for crossing the WGA picket lines to work on the upcoming season of FX’s American Horror Story. That show has not stopped production amid the writers strike.

Kim shared a photo of her and Fran at the event and wrote, “My fashion icon! Always on my mood board! I seriously love this woman! The oh so gorgeous @officialfrandrescher.”

SAG-AFTRA responded to the controversy and said, “President Drescher is working as a brand ambassador for Dolce and Gabbana on location in Italy. This was a commitment fully known to the negotiating committee. She has been in negotiations every day either in person or via videoconference. President Drescher is managing a physically demanding schedule across three time zones, overseeing negotiations and working on location daily as well as managing her parents’ needs in [Florida]. She is returning to the States and will be on the ground in L.A. tomorrow [July 11], and will continue to chair our negotiations.”
