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.

    I think she took it too literally. I believe he meant that his franchise brings in a lot of money for ABC. The show is several seasons long and the contestants know by now what it is all about prior to signing up.
    It was a small social media exchange. It wasn’t a man insulting a woman. I’m a woman and all for the movement but EP overreacted.
