The Goldbergs star Wendi McLendon-Covey was not feeling the love from ABC at the Emmys.

As the 68th annual ceremony got underway Sunday in Los Angeles, the actress called out her show’s network for not including her or any of her castmates as presenters or other participants.

“Weird that the #Emmys are on ABC But no one from our successful ABC show was asked to take part in anything,” McLendon-Covey wrote in a since-deleted tweeted. “Hope everyone’s having a blast!”

McLendon-Covey, who plays the overprotective matriarch Beverly on the 1980s-set sitcom, said in follow-up tweets that she wasn’t complaining about the show not being nominated.

“Can’t control the nominations, but we could have been presenters,” she said.

McLendon-Covey added that she took down the critical tweet because “My point was lost.”
