Ellen Pompeo Speaks Out in Support of Gabrielle Union & Calls Out NBC

Ellen Pompeo is speaking out in support of Gabrielle Union after reports surfaced earlier in the week that the actress voiced concern to producers about the “toxic culture” behind-the-scenes at America’s Got Talent, including alleged criticism of physical appearance and racist jokes.

The Grey’s Anatomy star spoke out in a series of messages on Thursday (November 28).

“It’s unfortunate that @nbc the same network that protected disgusting men like Matt Lauer and punished women for speaking out or not putting up with it…has not changed their practices or culture. I support @itsgabrielleu commitment to speaking up to injustice. It takes courage,” she wrote.

“this is a teaching moment..It’s important..white girls I’m talking to you..whether you truly understand what racial injustice is or not..that you stand with your sisters on the front lines. Don’t cut side deals & don’t not get involved because it isn’t your issue..because it is,” she added.
