The DEMS eat their own!

Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo caught some serious backlash on social media after she made critical comments about Kamala Harris that some say were racially charged.

Pompeo tuned in to the second night of debates among the Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls on Wednesday. The 49-year-old actress responded to a tweet from Bloomberg that highlighted the “emerging trend” of Harris going directly after Joe Biden during these kinds of debates.

“Because she’s overconfident and believes he is her only competition,” Pompeo wrote.

The remark caught immediate and widespread backlash from her followers, who derided the comment as racism.

“It’s disappointing that you single out the black woman as ‘overconfident’ when she is actually defending her record against the frontrunner whose campaign has been solely fighting her, calling her ‘slippery and slick’ and other slurs. On that stage Biden was her only competition,” one user wrote.

“Despite your “activism”, you decide that disparaging a woman for doing the same thing other men did tonight was your contribution to the discussion. Disappointing…but not surprising. That 53% has many faces, but I see you,” wrote another user.

“Let me be very clear this was racist,” a more direct user noted.
