Ellen Pompeo Went After Kathie Lee Gifford And Hoda Kotb’s Wine Hour

December 12, 2018 / Posted by:

Queen of the woke baes, Ellen Pompeo, usually makes a damn good point when it comes to social injustice today. Just watch this, and you’ll see why we’re all feeling the way Gabrielle Union is looking. Ellen wasn’t done giving Gabrielle a case of the “mmmhmmm, sister!” She’s now coming after Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford’s hour of wine after they (or more likely a staffer in charge of their Twitter account) tweeted about a recent appearance she made on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk. The Hoda and KLG tweet was only about some implied Patrick Dempsey drama, and Ellen didn’t like how it bypassed the more #woke parts of her Jada interview.

Us Weekly says Ellen is why Kathie Lee is leaving Today after 11 years. I’m only kidding, this whole mess came right before KLG said she’s quitting the throne of the 19th hour of the show.

The tweet-in-question was about how Ellen said she hadn’t talked to Patrick since he left Grey’s Anatomy. Ellen responded, uh, a little bit in the manner of bringing a gun to a knife fight or however that shit is supposed to go:

Yeah, your emojis don’t soften that blow! That’s like me messaging my roommate with “Who the FUCK keeps eating my chips?!” and trying to act cool about it with a follow-up smiling poop emoji. Ellen was likely pissed because she and Jada spoke at length about how she’s raising biracial children with her husband, Chris Ivery, but nobody at Today felt like including that in their gossipy article. Someone must have told Ellen to walk it back slightly since, well, Kathie Lee was retiring and all. She did – kinda?

Hoda and Kathie Lee haven’t responded to Ellen’s claim, but I guess we know who won’t be replacing KLG in April. If you aren’t up for chugging a 10am bottle of Chardonnay, you’re useless to the Today team!
