Hell has no rage like Ellen Pompeo when one of their own comes on fire. Gras Anatomy leading lady – and the real queen of ABC – tore into Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss after EP shaded Kelly Ripa earlier this week.
On Wednesday Fleiss tweeted, "Easy, Kelly Ripa … Banchor franchise pays your salary!" After Ripa called the dating series "gross" and "creepy" on ABC-owned Live With Kelly and Ryan. At the beginning of Thursday, Pompeo shot back at Fleiss (also via Twitter) and wrote: "Okay [Mike Fleiss] it's about weddings! Your show DOES NOT pay Kelly Ripa's salary. We also do not attack successful women in our network and men can surely not take credit for their success. Don't get me started on your show cuz I'm a wild one. "
Pompeo then took a last dig in the series of prolonged diversity problems, and ended her tweet with" #bachelorsoooowhite. "
Okay @fleissmeister … it's all about weddings! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. We also do not attack successful women in our network and men can certainly not take credit for their success. Don't let me start on your show cuz I'm a wild …. #bachelorsoooowhite

Moment later, Pompeo – who had taken a mini -social media hiatus – tweeted followers, "took a break but had to jump back into the ring for my girl".
To date, ABC has not commented on cerfuffle.
