Grey’s Anatomy fans have been pretty pissed at Miranda Bailey this season. At the end of season 15, the truth came out that Meredith Grey had committed insurance fraud on behalf of a patient, and Bailey fired her ASAP along with Richard Webber and Alex Karev. It was a major, major bummer.
But fans have started to point out the hypocrisy of the whole situation, and Ellen Pompeo (who plays Meredith) totally agrees with them. Earlier this week, the actress retweeted a fan’s thoughts on the matter. “I love when the fans remember stuff I don’t!!!” she said when someone remembered that Bailey had committed insurance fraud *herself*.
I love when the fans remember stuff I don’t!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼❤️ https://t.co/wy9zxcYdZz
Any sentence that starts with “Wait a damn minute” is probably going to be good, so you know this point is valid without even reading any further, but here’s a quick refresher on what @ChelseaMGiles is referencing. Way back in season 5, Bailey and Karev had a patient whose insurance expired at midnight the day he came in. When they finished operating at 2:30 a.m., Bailey asked Karev to set the clock back because it was important the hospital record showed the correct time as 11:58………..INTERESTING.
From there, other fans started to point out there have been TONS of instances of fraud during the 16 long seasons of Grey’s. There was that one time Karev literally stabbed a patient.
Yes!! This is what we’ve been talking about all summer! And Alex stabbed that patient to make it seem like an emergency surgery so his insurance would pay for it.
Then people just started going off on Bailey for some other sketchy stuff she did through the years, which I am just going to leave here without comment.
ALSO Bailey gave a patient inactivated HIV without the parents consent to save the child. Bailey was always the “doing the right thing despite the consequences” type of person, because she knew the system was broken. So what changed?
Oh yes she did! And, didn’t Bailey cover for Dr. Weber when he was drinking on the job, yet she was absolutely unforgiving to Meredith when she helped Adele get into the Alzheimer’s clinical trial!
In the episode with the 6 kidneys transplant ..Didn’t Bailey talked to the woman whom was been cheated on even though she wasn’t supposed to get involve?? @shondarhimes I’ve got questions. Why does she treat Meredith like crap?? Is it jealousy?? WTH??
INTERESTING. All valid points. Maybe the Grey’s writers should start reading some of these tweets before they have Bailey do anything else super illegal.
