Drew to Writers: Let Them Eat Burgers!

1/17/2008 7:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Drew CareyThe expression "starving artist" can certainly apply to striking writers, but Drew Carey is providing them with free meals -- at Bob's Big Boy!

We're told Drew picks up the tab at the Burbank institution for any writer who shows the wait staff a WGA card. So far, we hear he's spent a fat $10,000!

The high-calorie eatery is one of Drew's faves. Shocker.

I've been eating at that Toluca Lake Big Boy since I was a kid. I still love those burgers BUT they have changed over the years and aren't as good as they use to be. Still delicious though.

I don't support this catering down to these striking writers (especially when many of them already make well into the 6 figures) when the crew and production staff, who don't make nearly enough as these writers, are left jobless with nobody is helping them.

Good on himfor supporting the writers.If there wasn't greed involved with the studio's they would all be back at work now,but instead millions are being lost when they could have just paid them in the first place.

If these writers feel they aren't getting paid enough, FIND ANOTHER JOB !!!!!!!!!!! That's what thousands of other Americans do !!! Or, get a second job. Tons of people do that also !!

Good for you, Drew. We are all tired of the whining writers. They voted to strike, which is their right. They get to pay the price. Of course, it's tough. Of course, families go through hard times. Welcome to life. I hope you win,. But please shut the blazes up about how tough it is. Just SHUDDAP!
