Ellen Pompeo Slams Media Outlet for Coverage of Kobe Bryant's Crash

Ellen Pompeo is calling out a media outlet for how it handled coverage of Kobe Bryant‘s fatal helicopter crash.

The 50-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star took to Twitter on Tuesday (January 28) to voice her concerns, specifically with regard to TMZ and its founder, Harvey Levin.

“I wonder why police departments give @HarveyLevinTMZ all this sensitive info?” Ellen wrote. “I wonder why @HarveyLevinTMZ puts out photos of women who have been attacked or assaulted. …Who were victims ? Exploiting women who have been abused… why is this guy still in business at all?”

“So many questions I have …if we are not tolerating abuse anymore… shouldn’t we be calling this out?” she continued. “Exploiting women who have been abused… exploiting the brutal sudden death of peoples loved ones is certainly emotional abuse… I call times up on his behavior.”

She added, “We should be furious about the history of this media outlet regarding women… it’s not news it’s exploitation.”
