Jesse Williams Doesn't Stand for National Anthem at Basketball Game After Charlottesville Attack

Jesse Williams Doesn't Stand for National Anthem at Basketball Game After Charlottesville Attack

Jesse Williams is taking a stance against violence in the United States.

The 36-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star refused to stand during the National Anthem at the BIG3 basketball game on Sunday (August 13) in response to the violence going on Charlottesville, Virginia.

During the song, Jesse shared a video with the caption, “”We’ll stand when you do…” and fans believe that the message is directed at President Trump for the way he handled the white supremacists involved in the rallies and attacks in Charlottesville.

Trump was criticized yesterday for his response to the attacks as he refused to acknowledge that racism is taking place and for not mentioning that it started with a white supremacy rally.

You can watch Jesse‘s video on TMZ.com.
