Tracee Ellis Ross saw her name in headlines this week for a ‘Hollywood Reporter’ story that alleged she was getting paid “significantly less” than Anthony Anderson, her counterpart on the hit ABC series ‘Black-ish.’

The article also asserted Ross, a staunch supporter of the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements (both campaigns that encourage female empowerment and equality), was threatening to appear in fewer episodes of the show if her pay was not equal to Anderson’s.

As the report gained heat over the week, the actress took to social media over the weekend to not only deny the news, but also address the ‘Hollywood Reporter’ story head on.

    I hate that this is happening to Tracee. She’s so positive and upbeat. And she doesn’t mess with anyone.
