Ellen Pompeo is facing some criticism after her comments about Harvey Weinstein and his accusers in an interview that has resurfaced online.
The clip comes from an Oxford Union Q&A with the Grey’s Anatomy actress, which was uploaded back in July of 2018.

“what the f–k is wrong with ellen pompeo, this is absolutely DISGUSTING,” one viral tweet read with a clip from the conversation.
“I think we bear some responsibility. Not all, but it takes two to tango for sure, and that’s not to blame the victims. That’s just to say, I did go into a room with Harvey Weinstein, I sat at a table with him, I had probably a two and a half hour conversation with him. He never said anything inappropriate to me, he never made any sort of physical advance to me,” Ellen says in the clip.
“I wasn’t in the room alone with him. I had been sent there by an agent in the middle of the daytime. I didn’t think there was anything wrong. I wouldn’t have gone into that room at night. But he did nothing inappropriate toward me. Now had he, I would have picked up that glass and smashed him across the side of the face with it. So I mean, it’s all what we’re willing to tolerate in 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 we want to be in show business?”
Kevin Smith recently revealed this about Harvey Weinstein.
