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.”

Jesse Williams delivers a powerful speech on stage while accepting the Humanitarian Award at the 2016 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (June 26) in Los Angeles.

“Now, this award, this is not for me, this is for the real organizers all over the country, activist civil rights attorneys, the parents, the teachers, the students who are realizing that a system built to divide and impoverish and destroy us cannot stand if we do. All right? It’s kind of basic mathematics, the more we learn about who we are and how we got here, the more we will mobilize,” Jesse said.

Jesse has worked hard as an activist and as a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. He protested the death of unarmed teen Michael Brown after he was shot several years ago in Ferguson, Missouri.
