Jesse Williams Responds to Petition to Get Him Fired From 'Grey's Anatomy'

Jesse Williams has broken his silence regarding a petition to get him fired from his starring role on Grey’s Anatomy.

Some people called for the 34-year-old actor to lose his job over alleged “racist, hate speech against law enforcement and white people” during his powerful acceptance speech for the Humanitarian Award at the 2016 BET Awards.

“Because you keep incessantly promoting their cowardly intolerance! Not a single sane sentence in their claim. NotOne,” Jesse tweeted.

Meanwhile, Grey’s executive producer Shonda Rhimes also recently had a perfect response to the petition.

    apparently pple don’t like it when truth is spoken out in public. well done jesse

    Is it only racist when a white person says it? BTW, how black is Mr.Martin? With his blue eyes, he’s looking a bit high yellow from here….

  • VanityInsecurity

    Ive got to say from a bi-racial persons perspective his speech wasn’t empowering or powerful. He doesn’t represent me in anyway.

  • Gina

    Why do white people think calling them out on their racism is racist? Truth hurts?

  • willowbee

    The best thing to do when you disagree with celebrities like Jesse and Shonda Rimes is to not give them your money or attention in their shows. Simple. Don’t watch them. Don’t buy into their busine$$. They only behave this way because they feel they can with their loaded wallets, meanwhile the rest of us are working two part time jobs.

    Because,most Blacks in this country are racists.

    Boycott this racist loser.

  • VanityInsecurity

    .. you do know that almost all of African Americans have a high percentage of white in them.. you are calling yourself shook & angry.

  • Arx

    So then, why are “white” african americans treated differently than white americans. Btw I’m not american.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Im biracial & have never been treated harshly in any way shape or form because of my skin color. Criminals get treated like criminals. People who live a good path get treated with respect & that is all forms of race. that is my opinion & from experience.

  • Legendary Trolly

    His speech was about unity, but then contradicts itself and talks about culture appropriation. Which is basically blacks playing racial teams and getting mad when non blacks wear braids or dreadlocks, which is racist.

  • Gina

    Wrong again, buddy. More than anything, he was calling out white people who pick and choose when it’s o.k to embrace black people/culture; people who only do so when it’s convenient for them, while at the same time turning their backs on black people when it comes to important issues facing the black community. People are quick to appropriate our culture but refuse to stand up for us in times of strife. People love black culture but hate black people; that’s what he was saying.

    Wrong!

  • Gina

    Wrong!

  • Gina

    Wrong!

  • Legendary Trolly

    Thats because its nothing to stand for. Everyone doesnt agree that we’re always the victim. Our problems is something we can fix by looking in the mirror. We always blame everyone else. And its allot of people thats not down for that. When will we go to chicago and protest all these kids killing eachother? We dont even care about the community.

  • Gina

    Wrong. Nobody said we are always the victims but don’t you dare try to deny that there are outside factors that aid in our oppression.

  • Legendary Trolly

    No. We have so many problems in our community that we refuse to change. We absolutely always play the victim. We create race issues in our head. We use history as an excuse for why we wont change. Im black and Im not down with this crap going on. Our people dont even know how to function in society and refuses to try!

  • Gina

    Nope. One can only change so much when there is an entire system designed to work against you. This is a contributing factor to the current state of the black community. I agree that the we must take some accountability for a lot of our issues, but other things are simply out of our hand and you know it.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Thats called giving them an excuse for why they make poor choices. This is true that the system is set up a certain way. But thats not good enough. All these criminals in our community. No one cares about it. We will never go and protest all this mess going on in these Chicago streets I guess.

    BLM could go and flood the streets of Chicago. They want to be martyrs anyways. They can put their lives on the line by doing that, and it will be hard for them to have shootouts.

    Oprah is from Chicago and she is building schools in Africa. She needs to invest her money in a top notch police program, with undercover cops in their communities. Surveillance camera’s should be everywhere. Oprah doesnt even care!

    Once we stop committing crime, they wont have a reason to profile us anymore. Once we stop making everything a race issue then people wont have a reason to hate us and be racist towards us anymore. People hate us so much after the furgeson mess.

  • Gina

    You said people hate us so much, but it also sounds like you hate us too. Let’s just end this right here because we are NEVER gonna agree.

  • Robert Williams

    It’s funny that over 200,000 WHITE people died in the civil war so blacks can be free. Yet white people are so evil and pieces of s**t. Carry on brother.

  • Robert Williams

    Amen. Anger and speeches are all about white cop vs black criminal. Yet black on black murder BY FAR exceeds white cop/black man death, yet these actors won’t speak out against that. Change has to come from within. Quit playing the victim.

  • Robert Williams

    Right!

  • Gina

    Right up your ass.

  • Robert Williams

    LMFAO!! Real mature! How old are you, 12?!?!?! Black lives don’t even matter to your own people! They only matter if a white cop is involved. Newsflash. More whites are killed by cops than blacks! Fairytale SHATTERED!

  • Robert Williams

    It would have been more powerful if he attacked the black on black murders that FAR EXCEED any other murder there is. Instead he played out the well worn “race card” and focused on white cops/black criminals. Yawn.

  • Gina

    Really? Because white people never kill each other, you moron? Are you stupid or just delusional? Black people are only 13% of the US population & yet they account for 25% of all deaths at a cops hands. This is a disproportionate amount considering the small population of black people. White people make up a significantly larger population, so the number of deaths is proportionate to the population size. So instead of spewing statistics, learn what they actually mean, honey. You better hope & pray that I’m not 12 years old, because then your pride would end up being SHATTERED by a supposed 12 year old schooling your dumb ass.

  • Robert Williams

    Black people are also 13% of the population responsible for 52% of ALL murders! Go to sleep, you racsit!

  • Robert Williams

    How about listening to Kevin Jackson (who is BLACK by the way) and take your racist drivel somewhere else.

  • Gina

    Calling out racism is NOT racist. Does Kevin Jackson make you feel better about being a racist because he agrees with you? Congrats. Now take your bullsh*t elsewhere.

  • Gina

    You’re so full of sh*t you can’t even spell racist properly. Look the word up in the dictionary, your face is next to it.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Im not self-loathing, but when you make everything a race issue and u do it from an honest point of view, you will spend so much time looking in the mirror that you will sound self-loathing.

    How long before enough is enough? When will we start trying to improve? I aint trynna hear this cop mess.

  • Gina

    Cops targeting and killing black people for sport, IS a race issue. There is no way around that. Look past the issue if you want, but I won’t.

  • Legendary Trolly

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! You lying fool! Their is no “Cops targeting and killing black people for a sport”

    Whether your black or white, if you resist and provoke a problem, you may get what your looking for! The answer is to NOT resist and provoke a problem you weak dummy Lol

    Make sure you never call the cops if you come home and find out that someone has kidnapped your child. Remember, because your black, your scared of the cops. Dont you ever call them to protect you. You dont want to seem like a hypocrite!

  • Gina

    Bitch, please. Black people get killed even if they don’t resist arrest. White people who resist police still have a greater chance of making it out alive than black people who resist. Your self-hating ass knows it. Cops are the ones who claim to be “afraid” of black people. If that’s the case, their weak, trigger happy asses shouldn’t be cops in the first place. When your skin color is seen as a weapon, you will never be safe around a trigger happy cop. How am I supposed to even argue with a dumb bitch who doesn’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re.” Fool, educate yourself on basic grammar before you tell black people what they need to do.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Theirs nothing to know! You flatout made it up in your head Lol Our nature as blacks, is to “think too much” and create race problems in our heads! Nothing you said was factual!

    We have a habit of “pretending to be deep” and coming up with silly mess that has nothing to do with inspiring the next brother to get some bread!

    In fact, the BLM is 100% make-believe! We have a habit of making everything a race issue. Mike Brown made very poor choices and it resulted in his death! But because he was black, we created this movement!

    I would never want my kids to go to school with people like Brown! He was an awful person. We got Darren Wilson fired over this guy, and the KKK who is supposed to be the scum of the earth donated money to Wilson. Making it seem like they were heroes cleaning up our mess.

    No one’s skin color is “seen as a weapon” Thats another make-believe story you conjured Lol

    Like I said(which you ignored…the way you ignore everything else that you cant respond to Lol) Make sure you NEVER call the cops to protect you, sense your black and your scared of them!

  • Gina

    I didn’t ignore any of the vile BS that you said. But it’s hard to respond to complete self-hating nonsense. You keep saying “we” like you include yourself in the black community; but truth is, you hate us & yourself too much for that. You’re bitter and disgusting. Also, LEARN HOW TO SPELL! You say the black community needs to improve, and yet you represent the worst of us, the ones who CAN’T SPELL FOR SH*T! You’re the damn hypocrite here, not me.

  • Legendary Trolly

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! You are so weak. You ignore things you cant respond to, and what does it say about you, the way you PRETEND to think that Im self-hating, when you dont actually believe I am? Lol

    I am NOT apart of the “black community” I dont believe in playing racial teams and Im not obsessed with being black like you are. To me, my skin color doesnt matter!

    However, people like you have caused so much racism in the past few yrs, that all blacks have to pay for your evil trash. You are a terrorist. You distract young blacks from the money and confuse them with this racial trash. It almost seems malicious as if you deliberately wanted to cause a divide, while pushing young cats further and further away from the paper, while telling him “Its okay that you make poor choices…Its not your fault…Its white people’s fault…its the police fault…its history’s fault”

    And who cares about spelling? I dont care if whites think Im ghetto or loud. I love my people for WHO they are. But I have a PROBLEM with white people assuming that all of us are criminals, race baiters, and problem starters like you.

    You have so much learning to do! You even admitted that its okay for kids to keep killing eachother in chicago, since “The system is set up that way” Go away you evil goofball.

  • Gina

    LMAO! You dumb f*ck. I NEVER said it’s OK to kill anyone. Who’s the one ignoring things now? Not only are you unable to spell, but your dumb ass can’t read either. You’re a damn hypocrite; you say you love your people and yet you say you’re not a part of the black community. Which is it, ya flip flopper? How are they your people if you refuse to acknowledge you are a part of them? I don’t respond to things that are wildly irrational because arguing with a damn fool makes me end up looking like a damn fool too. You are FAR to basic to continue arguing with, you even hate your own skin color to the point where you ignore it! I’m far too good for the likes of you. Enjoy arguing with yourself, you lost, pathetic soul. BYE!!

    Yes you did say that. You just dont realize that you said it.

    The more you keep ignoring whats going on, making everything a race issue, blaming the system, blaming cops, blaming whites, the more these kids will keep doing the same mess over and over again!

    And listen to what you said “How are they your people if you refuse to acknowledge that your apart of them?” Pay attention.

    I didnt say I wasnt apart of them, for the sake of separating myself. I specifically said I dont believe in “racial teams” You ignored that, because you couldnt respond to it! I guess it was too irrational!

    “I cant respond to anything you said…So I will ignore it, then go into tangents…I will nitpick things you say to distract from the things I cant respond too…At this point, you make no sense…Which is a perfect excuse for me to run away” Lol

    You are weak. I dont care about your pretend games!

  • Legendary Trolly

    It took me a while but I wanted to copy and paste the things you ignored! “Der its ignorant, I refuse to listen” You did the same thing when I educated ya dumbazz about Transgenders using the restroom remember? I remember now Lol

    You flatout made it up in your head Lol Our nature as blacks, is to “think too much” and create race problems in our heads! Nothing you said was factual!
