Hell is not angry like Ellen Pompeo when one of his own comes under fire. The Gray's Anatomy leading lady – and the real queen of ABC – ended in Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss after the EP colored Kelly Ripa earlier this week.
"Easy, Kelly Ripa … Bachelor paid franchise your salary!" Afterwards Ripa called the former "gross" and "creepy" series on ABC Live With Kelly and Ryan. Early Thursday, Pompeo returns to Fleiss (also via Twitter), writes, "Okay [Mike Fleiss] that's what bro broke! Kelly does not pay your salary. women in our network and people will certainly not get credit for their success. Do not start me at your show cuz I'm savage. "
Pompeo then took a final dig in series of chronicled problems of diversity, ending with his tweet with "#bachelorsoooowhite."
Okay @ fleissmeister … that's their holding bro! Your show will NOT pay @ KulelRipa salary. Nor do we attack successful women in our network and people will certainly not get credit for their success. Do not get me started on your show cuz I'm a cruel man …. #bachelorsoooowhite

Shortly after, Pompeo – to take mini-social media hiatus – tweeted followers, "There was a break but had to jump back to the ring for my girl."
Today, ABC does not comment on kerfuffle.
