I am trying to create a script to remove specific users from groups.

The following works just fine:
$group.remove("WinNT://"+$env:COMPUTERNAME+"/Bad_User,user")

However I want to use a variable for the account name and I can't ge t it to work.  Something a long the line of:

$BU = "Bad_User"
$group.remove("WinNT://"+$env:COMPUTERNAME+"/"$BU",user")

Please,
How do I format this string, and what should i have googled to figure it out?
