Loyal Live with Kelly and Ryan viewers know that co-host Kelly Ripa is in some hot water for the comments she made about ABC’s The Bachelor. 

"You know how I feel about this show. It disgusts me," Ripa said during the show. "I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn't stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one, ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how I feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy."

Ripa even sat down with Hannah Brown, who is the current Bachelorette for the longtime franchise, and further explained her stance on the show.

"I am very against women fighting over a guy," Ripa told Brown. "I don't believe in it. I think it's, you know, weird and sets us back." 


Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss addressed Ripa's comments on Twitter, writing, "Easy, @kellyripa ... #TheBachelor franchise pays your salary!" 

Fleiss' response didn't sit well with Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, who was quick to call him out on social media. 

"Okay @fleissmeister... that's some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary," she wrote on Twitter. "Also we don't attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success.  Don't get me started on your show cuz I'm a savage.... #bachelorsoooowhite."
