he internet did not respond kindly to Ellen Pompeo calling Kamala Harris “overconfident.” The Grey’s Anatomy star was tuned into the second Democratic debate on Wednesday, but riled people up with remarks about Harris on Twitter.

Pompeo’s controversial comment came in response to a Bloomberg tweet suggesting that an “emerging trend” in the debate was that Kamala Harris only wanted to debate Biden. The star’s response: “Because she’s overconfident and believes he is her only competition.”

Many interpreted her criticism as a “racial comment,” and took Pompeo to task. “Black women are allowed only a certain amount of confidence,” one person tweeted. “Must always yield something to whatever white man is around.”

Another wrote, “I know you didn’t just call a black woman running for president overconfident.”


Others suggested that her comment was meant to suggest Harris was being “uppity” and said that “white women need to do better.”

On top of that, her comment was also slammed for being sexist:

lol The country is race obsessed and accusations of racism are losing any meaning. It's getting to the point where any criticism of a POC will be interpreted as racial in nature.

Oh, c'mon!!! That was certainly not racist at all. Harris and her staff are desperate, and after the justified attack she received from Gabbard, she should be!

She was clearly overconfident. Tulsi Gabbard took her to the wood-shed. If it's true, it's likely not racist.

Interesting thing about Gabbard's attack was it not only addressed the obvious ID politics angle, but also put a question into the heads of millions of pro-marijuana-legalization millennials. I think Kamala Harris is toast after this.
