‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star Ellen Pompeo Criticises The Members Of HFPA And “White Hollywood” With An Open Letter Regarding Diversity In Golden Globes

Well-known TV personality and actor Ellen Pompeo fired up her social media accounts ahead of 78th Golden Globe Awards in order to call out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to take action to fix its lack of diverse members.

Pompeo, best known for her portrayal of the title character ‘Meredith Grey‘ in fan-favorite, long-run TV series, ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ released an open letter addressing to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and “White Hollywood” through her verified social media accounts. She began her words as follows:

“I think we can all agree that the governing body of the Golden Globe Awards the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has a membership equity issue that is unacceptable, This is a very solvable problem. This is Hollywood, we are master problem solvers.”

The actor, who previously received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the said series, urged her actor fellows to fight against inequality by expressing that this is not the problem of communities of color:

“What we can not do… is leave this problem up to the black community and all our communities of color to fix. This is not their problem, it’s ours.”

Pompeo concluded her open letter by kindly asking all of her “white colleagues” in the film & TV industry which granted them the enormous privilege “to pull up, show up, and get this issue resolved.” She added:

Let’s show our black colleagues that we care and are willing to do the work to right the wrongs we have created. Now is not a time to be silent.”

This open letter received huge support from her industry friends; both on Instagram and Twitter, a great number of notable names couldn’t help showing their supports through messages and posts.
