During her appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk on Monday, Ellen Pompeo got frank about race, from raising three biracial children to fending off criticism from other people who she says “are threatened by my love of people of color or black culture.”
“We haven’t spoken since he’s left the show,” Pompeo confirmed when asked about her current relationship with Dempsey.
She went on to praise Dempsey as a “wonderful actor” and made it clear that there’s no bad blood.
Today.com was one of many outlets to focus on the McDreamy angle rather than Pompeo’s discussion of race, and the erasure clearly stung. When the Twitter account for Today’s Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb shared a story about her comments about Dempsey, Pompeo fired back.
Hey here’s a suggestion!! Maybe all of you over there lay off the booze and pay attention to the real conversation that took place ? 🍷🍷🍷😜😜😜 https://t.co/JJ5SUG9pgc
