Messing commented on the controversy on Saturday while relaying Pompeo’s criticism of the network.

“Thank you for this@ EllenPompeo, “she tweeted. “This is disgusting behavior from a network that has been my professional home for decades. Yes, women become ‘difficult,’ when their insistence on a respectful and professional working environment, is ignored.”
