    Ellen Pompeo responds to backlash over old Harvey Weinstein comments

    Ellen Pompeo is responding to backlash over old comments she made about Harvey Weinstein and #MeToo accusers.

    This week, a 2018 clip of the Grey’s Anatomy star discussing the now-convicted rapist, amid a longer conversation about sexual harassment in Hollywood, was resurfaced. In the Oxford Union Q&A panel, Pompeo talked about how women “bear some responsibility” amid #MeToo because it “takes two to tango for sure” before adding “and that’s not to blame the victims.”𝐤𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐲@adoresbell

    Pompeo was sharing her experience about having a 2-plus hour meeting with Weinstein, who was sentenced to 23 years in prison earlier this year for first-degree sexual assault and third-degree rape. She said she “wouldn’t have gone into that room at night,” as some of his nearly 100 accusers did. She also said she would have fought him off if he tried to attack her — despite accusers detailing the difficulty of doing so as he weighed 300 pounds.

    “He did nothing inappropriate toward me, Pompeo said. “Now had he, I would have picked up that glass and smashed him across the side of the face with it.”

    In the clip, she went on to say, “It’s all what we’re willing to tolerate and our self-esteem. And what are we going to put up with and what are we going to compromise to be liked, to be loved, to be accepted. How bad do you want to be in show business?”

    See the entire interview here with the full question and answer at 15:21:

    This clip was brought to Pompeo’s attention on Twitter and she responded Thursday. She said it was “out of context” and that Twitter wasn’t the right platform to talk about the serious topic, saying victims should seek help from a therapist.Ellen Pompeo@EllenPompeo

    Hey girls sorry if video clips are upsetting!! Its out of context & it’s too serious a subject to talk about on a platform like this…people who have been abused or assaulted should seek guidance from a therapist… this is not a healthy place for topics this serious. https://twitter.com/becsxanatomy/status/1253290426376863745 …becs@becsxanatomyi believe that @EllenPompeo was talking about the culture in hollywood where women are conditioned to use their bodies to get a job. she was asking women to take their power back. she wasn’t talking about blaming victims. the ellen we know would never shame women. #ellenpompeo4,095Twitter Ads info and privacy935 people are talking about this

    Pompeo went on to address people “who felt offended,” saying the panel was two years ago and “way before the whole stories of the women came out.” But that timeline is off. Her interview was in May 2018 while Weinstein accusers first started speaking publicly, first to the New York Times and New Yorker, in October 2017.Ellen Pompeo@EllenPompeo

    For those who feel offended or are taking this personally this panel was 2 + years ago and it was way before the whole stories of the women came out I Certainly didn’t know he was a rapist at that point … that took shit to a whole different level. https://twitter.com/greyspostit/status/1253394286512615431 …luiza shepherd@greyspostitReplying to @emnewb33 @EllenPompeoyou do not speak for eveyone. no one expects to be pampered or anything. what people want is respect for the horrible situation they’ve been through. as someone who loves her I say that she does owe the people whose words she said hurt and touched a already sore wound..1,955Twitter Ads info and privacy297 people are talking about this

    Pompeo clarified that she was talking about sexual harassment in Hollywood, not assault.Ellen Pompeo@EllenPompeo

    And… I’m talking about harassment… not assault. Two different things. I was speaking about MY experience of being harassed in Hollywood and my outlook on it4,185Twitter Ads info and privacy389 people are talking about thisEllen Pompeo@EllenPompeo

    for years before times up women had to put up with harassment and still do on a regular basis …it was just part of the job as it is in a lot or all professions …we couldn’t complain like we can now. If we complained we would be out and the man would stay.2,747Twitter Ads info and privacy340 people are talking about thisEllen Pompeo@EllenPompeo

    &MY way of coping w/ whatever situations I’ve been in is not a comment on how other women handle things… again Thank God we can speak up now but once again assault and harassment are different both bad but different. Not sure of harassment is seen by law enforcement as a crime2,198Twitter Ads info and privacy291 people are talking about this

    Pompeo popped back online shortly after and said that she realized she was incorrect and that accusers had already come forward about Weinstein prior to her interview. However, she said didn’t follow the story — about the 100 accusers detailing decades of abuse — until Weinstein’s trial began.Ellen Pompeo@EllenPompeo

    Okay so I was just told The Times story was out before this but I didn’t read it … I only was really following the story on the news once the trial began2,760Twitter Ads info and privacy341 people are talking about this

    Weinstein’s trial began this year and he is now serving 23 years in prison.
