Grey’s Anatomy alum Sara Ramirez is calling out ABC for not cutting out a joke about bisexuality on its Tuesday night comedy series The Real O’Neals. The line, which was delivered by Noah Galvin‘s openly gay character Kenny O’Neal, compared being bisexual to having “webbed toes” or “money problems.”
The actress, who played the openly bisexual Callie Torres on Grey’s, took to her twitter account to express her contempt for the episode, writing, “And as someone who worked 4 them [ABC] 4 10 years+, am truly disheartened & disappointed quite frankly. I will invest my brand where I’m respected.”
She asked ABC and the show to “own it, address it, clarify it, empower our #Queer #Bisexual youth & community w/accurate positive reflections”
Ramirez, who indentifies as bisexual, tweeted out a link to a petition requesting fot ABC to “end biphobia and bi-erasure on The Real O’Neals.
