It's been a rough week for television "doctors," to put it mildly. First, Dr. Oz caused a load of backlash after suggesting that schools should reopen if it would "only" kill 2%–3% more people.
Then Dr. Phil compared COVID-19 deaths with those resulting from automobile accidents, smoking, and swimming pools — using some very incorrect statistics while doing so.
Well, Ellen Pompeo, aka Meredith Grey herself, has spoken, and she is NOT happy.
First Ellen tweeted against people who were out protesting stay-at-home orders in California.
Then she called out "old white guy tv docs" and said that she is "tired [of] out of touch old fools" — which, tbh, same.
Ellen continued by saying that making "careless statements" went against the Hippocratic oath, especially when so many health care workers are "suffering."
Then, just in case you had any doubts as to who Ellen was referring to, she responded to a tweet with pictures of the aforementioned TV doctors — as well as Drew Pinsky, who previously inaccurately compared the coronavirus and COVID-19 to the flu.
Excuse me, I think I need to cool off; I cannot handle this level of burn.
