Ellen Pompeo says she is not to blame for the exits of “Grey’s Anatomy” actresses Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew.
The leading actress has insisted her high salary is unrelated to the departure of her co-stars, but she felt compelled to answer angry fans.
“We are grateful all of you are so passionate, but if you knew these two women the way I know them they would not approve of all this nastiness,” tweeted Pompeo.
“They both are super shiny happy people,” she continued. “I know you’re angry but your representation couldn’t be further from who these women actually are.”
A fan asked Pompeo, “Aren’t we allowed to be angry at this injustice, though? Going to be two impossible holes to fill.”
Pompeo replied, “You are but spreading acceptance and love is our message with Greys and what all of the actors try to do with our performances on this show.”
