Ellen Pompeo Calls Out 'Bachelor' Creator Amid Kelly Ripa's Comments

Ellen Pompeo is calling out the creator of The Bachelor franchise, Mike Fleiss, after his comments regarding Kelly Ripa and her salary.

It all started when Kelly slammed The Bachelor franchise and said it “disgusts” her.

Mike then responded, “Easy, @KellyRipa … #TheBachelor franchise pays your salary!”

Well, Ellen Pompeo, who stars on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, responded, “Okay @fleissmeister… that’s some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. Also we don’t attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success. Don’t get me started on your show cuz I’m a savage…. #bachelorsoooowhite”

The hashtag at the end of Ellen‘s tweet refers to the fact that The Bachelor has always been a white man.
