Shonda Rhimes Perfectly Responds to Petition to Get Jesse Williams Fired From 'Grey's Anatomy'

Shonda Rhimes is responding to that ridiculous petition to get Jesse Williams fired from Grey’s Anatomy over his 2016 BET Awards speech.

The petition urged for Jesse to be fired for his “racist, hate speech against law enforcement and white people at the BET awards.” The petition has almost 7,000 signatures at the time of publication.

“Do not promote empty people & their tantrums. Pure clickbait to gain followers, attention & money, for themselves, not you. Never you,” Jesse wrote on Twitter this past weekend, seemingly in response to the petition.

Shonda got wind of the petition, and tweeted, “Um, people? Boo don’t need a petition. #shondalandrules.”

    Shonda lost a lost of weight, omg, good for her!

    Keep telling it like it is, Jesse! And kudos to you, Shonda. You rule!

  • Michelle Eve

    Wow so Jesse gave such a powerful speech and now he is a racist? Jesse great speech, people need to stop the silliness!

  • Torii Wehling

    Jesse does deserve to be fired. His rant was racist

  • guesteartt

    The petition is extremely idiotic. How dumb do you have to be? It’s like criticising victims of racism of being politically correct when they speak out.

  • Anastatia Bagans

    Powerful speech includes putting down white people and claiming they’re racist? Lmfao gtfo. I hope the white people that hired him, fire his ass.

  • Amber

    Just as Jesse said, “If you have a critique for the resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. If you have no interest in equal rights for black people then do not make suggestions to those who do.”

    FYI Shonda Rimes runs Grey’s Anatomy. Jesse isn’t going anywhere :)

    #shondalandrules?
    Wtf?

    Does this mean like “I rule stfu”? Kinda egocentric imo.
    Which what the speech of this douche bag was, did anyone hear any positive stuff being said about black ppl after his speech? No. It was stuff like Jessy for President and so on. His tweet put it better than anyone else probably ever could, “Do not promote empty people & their tantrums. Pure clickbait to gain followers, attention & money, for themselves, not you. Never you,” right? Hypocrite much?

    He’s building his career and public image over the backs of those suppressed black ppl he is “rooting” for.

    Yes, it’s just bcs white ppl are so racist and instead they start thinking and talking about other black ppl, half of them are just those “bystanders” who can only gaze at how inspiring Jesse is, while the others are just straight arse racists hating on him “telling the truth”.

    That black ppl are so suppressed in racist America where white supremacists rule the country and media and where https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CmoEt_7WgAIqTtv.jpg.

    Assuming that white people hired Jesse is racist in itself. He was hired by Shonda who I’m pretty sure is black.

    abc runs shonda. his words were toxic and idiotic, a cop out for anyone who disagrees with him

  • Christian

    he implied whiteness was evil. whiteness, as in being white. is blackness evil? could a white celeb say such a thing? and dont tell me he means the establishment, the system, etc…he said whiteness. there’s a very casual, trendy way that people use the word ‘white’ now as if it’s evil and something to be ashamed of. “i hate white people” for example. a black celeb could tweet it and not have to apologize (as long as they said something about how it referred to ‘some’ white people). that’s a toxic mentality and when white racists see that it encourages them, it doesnt make them question what they believe at all. and it makes white people racist who wouldnt be, they see someone not liking their race and copy the behavior, return it

    You are, as ‘guesteartt’ say, beyond help.

  • Christian

    IT IS WHAT IT IS because itzallconnected. This petition is yet another example of TPPS – Tiny Pink Penis Syndrome – with no hope of any kind of an erection – run amok and gone pussy pink wild.

    Sexism, racism, and colorism are pre-programmed, mental, illnesses founded, and grounded, in extremely low self-esteem. The belief in “white supremacy” has reduced the majority of pale-skinned [white and imitation white] people to living lies who have chosen to die in The Lie. Pale-skinned [white] people are melanin deficient. You can only be who, and what, you are. At best, even with a pumped up volume, and need to “concentrate” every thing, their best connection to The All called “huemanity” is staticky at best. This racial comment will be deemed “racist” by a society that has never allowed any of us to be anything but “racial.” Thankfully, the melanin deficient, recessive, gene has an expiration date. A segregated, whited-out, fantasy filmed, existence is the only way their nightmarish, American, dream can come true.

    For always, and in all ways, the energy put into the world by each of us is coming home to all of us–as us. Black, and white, are “knot-races” that manifest as States Of Mind. The goal of perfecting “a weak imitation of white” has destroyed the minds of many melanated [black] people. All African Americans are “knot-black.” Whereas, not every pale-skinned person is “white.” Karma is what karma does. You take on the [group] karma of your mate. Tragically, in spite of centuries of warning that still include death, and castration, many of “the brothers” are now wedlocked, or deep-dick, into an unfathomable hole.

    Frankly, my dear, even if I could play a sax, I wouldn’t give enough of a damn to imitate, NOR intimidate, the people forced [by a violent society built on unjust law] to change an overarching of “bad” into something really really good; and, therefore, profitable. Those oppressed, yet loving, people must truly be known to some higher power with long-range plans, and excellent higher order thinking skills. Soon enough, enough of us will learn, and appreciate, being “hounded into righteousness.”

    More than likely, there is a WHITE ONLY sign on the gates of hell. Raw capitalism is as evil as live spelled backwards. The original “sin” is still the belief that any One, or any thing, can become separated from The All-of-it. Possession, like separation, is an illusion. You “own” what you are when you “die.” Your body is not even your “own;” your ass will be put into a hole in the ground. A higher level of consciousness can-knot be stolen, imitated, denied, or destroyed. We are all a wonder-full part of The All-of-it. We come from KnowThing. We return to KnowThing. That bone marrow, evangelical, belief in “self-segregation” is what will separate “the wheat from the chafe” as “hue-manity” rises [a humane fusion] into the next level of consciousness.

    In all ways, for always, the energy put into the world by each of us comes home to all of us–as us. Integrity is what holds your life, and your ass, together. Where there is no integrity, there is no need for dignity. Back in the day, the original understanding of “hoe, and spade”, included helping The White Man dig a deeper hole. You take on the [group] karma of your mate. Tragically, in spite of centuries of warning that still include death, and castration, many of “the brothers” are now wedlocked, or dick-deep, into an unfathomable hole. White History documents the fact that everywhere the pale-skinned [white] male went, the 3Ds [death, disease, destruction] went with him. Only the spelling of “KnowThing” is about to change. Karma is what karma does. Before choosing the wind beneath your wings, it is best to know which way is up. At the end of this, The Last Daze, both heads on the average [black] male will hang in shame. Perhaps, Jesus is saving them for last. 🤔

    KNOW THY SELF was carved into stone by the Ancient Egyptians as both a lesson, and a reminder. Even though those 3 words were plagiarized by the Greeks while they made their tiny, pink, penises common knowledge, they are still more than a passing suggestion. If (y)our belief system supports any kind of slavery [mental, physical, doctrinal], (y)our religious mindset is still immoral. Every kind of force duhz “knot-work.” The blind-dead, war mongering, society that refuses to balance the scales of justice while “decriminalizing injustice” must be ostracized. Integrity is what holds your health, life, and society together.

    The Shunning of [white] America is now as real as “the ugly American. Pale-skinned [white] people are melanin-deficient. Saudi Arabian Wahhabism is a regurgitation of Hitler’s racism with Arabic seasoning. The real tragedy is how “White People” continU to “diss-cover” their true purpose. Soon enough, more of US will give thanks for the knowledge that becomes “won” with, and as, US. Prepare for The Rude Awakening of [white and imitation white] America. It will be called A 2020 Vision.
