Outrage mobs were quick to swoop in and accuse Ellen Pompeo of "racism" this week after the liberal actress described Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as "overconfident" during the Democratic Debates.

The "Grey's Anatomy" star was slammed as a racist for tweeting that Harris seems "overconfident and believes he [Joe Biden] is her only competition" during the primary debate Wednesday night.

Pompeo was responding to a Bloomberg Twitter post, which said; "An emerging trend in this debate: Kamala Harris very clearly only wants to debate Joe Biden."

The TV actress replied saying; "Because she's overconfident and believes he is her only competition."

According to The Blaze, the backlash was quick and fierce.

Numerous followers accused Pompeo of suggesting Harris was being "uppity," with one saying, "Is overconfident the acceptable way of saying uppity?

"Every single person on the stage was confident but somehow the black woman...

"White women need to do better, be the change we need."

Several called the comment flat-out racist, and others accused the actress of being "misogynistic."

Others went further, however, and took the opportunity to mention that Pompeo is married to a black man and has biracial children.

One person said because of that, "you might want to watch how you frame your language about the only Black woman candidate."

How did Pompeo react to the tweets?

Pompeo took the hits in stride, engaging with critics throughout the night while wondering what all the fuss was about, saying, "Not sure why my comment is now a racial comment...so weak..two people on a stage with a bunch of others they all came off a certain way and they are up there for intreptation [sic]...stop looking for s**t to get mad about."

The "Grey's Anatomy" star did have some defenders who pointed out that the word "overconfident" has nothing to do with race.

In the end, Pompeo signed off the evening with the message, "Goodnight everybody...I love you all no matter what..you can feel anyway [sic] you want...but so can I...and have love for everyone."
