Hypocrite Ellen Pompeo wants OTHER white people (but not herself) to lose their jobs so there can be more diversity

I had no idea who Ellen Pompeo was when I first read this news article about her that just got published today, so I looked up her wikipedia article. This is how it starts:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellen_Pompeo

Ellen Pompeo

Ellen Kathleen Pompeo (born November 10, 1969) is an American actress, director, and producer. She is one of the highest paid television actors, having signed a $20 million annual contract with the American Broadcasting Company in late 2017. She was honored with the 2007 Special Achievement in Entertaining by the National Italian American Foundation for her contributions to the entertainment industry.

Later on, the wikipedia article says:

Pompeo was then cast in ABC’s popular medical drama Grey’s Anatomy, and garnered worldwide recognition for her portrayal of the title character Dr. Meredith Grey. The role on the long running series earned her a Golden Globe nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award. The character became widely popular, making Pompeo one of the most renowned television actresses. In 2016, Pompeo was ranked fourth in the list of highest paid TV actresses by Forbes, with earnings of $14.5 million; she became the third highest paid female and the fifth highest paid actor overall in 2018 with earnings of $23.5 million. She was also the highest ranked actor from a drama series on the list.

OK. That’s fine. Although I myself have never watched Grey’s Anatomy, there are obviously a lot of other people who do, and I don’t have any problem with that. And I don’t have any problem with all of the money, awards, and prestige that Pompeo has received for her work on that show, as well as from her other endeavors in the entertainment industry.

What I do have a problem with, however, is the incredibly huge amount of hypocrisy in Pompeo’s statement that was reported in the article from earlier today.

Here’s a video of what she said. Skip to 0:24:

This is what she said:

“This day has been incredible, and there’s a ton of women in the room. But I don’t see enough color. And I didn’t see enough color when  I walked in the room today. And I had a meeting with the director of another endorsement project that I’m doing. I said, ‘You know, when I show up on set, I would like to see the crew look like the world that I walk around in every day.’ And I think it’s up to all productions to make sure that your crew looks like the world we see. As Caucasian people, it’s our job, it’s our task, it’s our responsibility, to make sure that we speak up in every single room we walk into, that this is not OK, and that we can all do better. It’s our job, because we’ve created the problem.”

Then Pompeo starts to cry, just to make sure that everyone knows how much she cares about this issue.

But she’s a fake and a phony.

If she truly cared about this issue, then she wouldn’t just be asking for other white people to give up their jobs so there can be more diversity.

Instead, if she truly cared about this issue, then she would give up her own job so there can be more diversity.

But Pompeo didn’t do that.

She’s not willing to give up her own job so there can be more diversity.

She just wants other white people to give up their jobs so there can be more diversity.

She is a hypocrite in the worst possible way.

Shame on Ellen Pompeo for not practicing what she preaches.
