Taking to her Twitter account, Pompeo publicly criticized the network and its executives for their decision to fire Union. Sharing series of tweets, Pompeo wrote, "It’s unfortunate that @nbc the same network that protected disgusting men like Matt Lauer and punished women for speaking out or not putting up with it…has not changed their practices or culture. I support @itsgabrielleu commitment to speaking up to injustice. It takes courage."

Moreover, the actress shared her view on the racial injustices; Ellen wrote, "This is a teaching moment...It’s important..white girls I’m talking to you..whether you truly understand what racial injustice is or not..that you stand with your sisters on the front lines. Don’t cut side deals & don’t get involved because it isn’t your issue..because it is."
