Pompeo spent part of the weekend interacting with fans on social media. When one user, who loves the show, said they thought the most recent season which was dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic was “dumpster trash”, Ellen replied that their opinion “matters.”
“All good!” she wrote. “Seventeen seasons we can’t please everyone all the time.
“It’s definitely not easy keeping it going and keeping it great. I get it. Thanks for checking it out anyway. And thanks for your feedback, it matters. Sending you love.”
When some fans began to take issue with the criticism, Ellen defended the original poster.
“But why is someone saying they didn’t like something bad?” she said. “It’s literally been on for two decades!! Let her live… There is plenty of shit I don’t like.”
“Not to mention people are pretty much allowed to feel however they want after this really fucked up couple of years we have had.”
