Black Twitter is fed up with actress Ellen Pompeo after she revealed she allegedly cursed out Hollywood vet, Denzel Washington. And they’re letting her HAVE IT. More inside…
Black Twitter is going IN on “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo.
The reason? Well, she recently shared a story about how she allegedly cursed out Denzel Washington on the set of "Grey’s Anatomy."
In 2015, Dezel got behind the camera to direct an episode of the hit hospital drama, titled "The Sound of Silence," which aired during the show’s 12th season where the Oscar winning actor was making his television directorial debut.
While chopping it up on her “Tell Me with Ellen Pompeo” podcast, Ellen revealed she allegedly scolded Denzel Washington. She said Denzel wasn’t pleased once he realized Ellen had improvised the scene without clearing it with him first.
“We love actors who make choices, right? And I yelled at him, and I was like, ‘Look at me when you apologize. Look at me.’ And that wasn’t in the dialogue, and Denzel went ham on my a**. He was like, ‘I’m the director. Don’t you tell him what to do.’”
She continued, “I was like, ‘Listen, motherf*cker, this is my show. This is my set. Who are you telling?’ Like, ‘You barely know where the bathroom is.’ And I have the utmost respect for him as an actor, as a director, as everything, but like, yo, we went at it one day.”
It was as if she was boastful about cursing out one of the greatest living actors and Black Twitter wasn’t having it! Ellen has been dubbed a "Karen" for her ways.
"Ellen Pompeo is really that Karen. Imagine disrespecting Denzel Washington for doing his job," one user tweeted.
