Jesse Williams' New App Brings 'Black Perspective' to Emojis

Jesse Williams has a passion project in his app.

The 35-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actor recently opened up about @ebrojiapp, which is geared toward African Americans and allows communication through emojis, stickers, and GIFs across several social platforms.

“So much of everything we consume is centered around whiteness, and then, maybe they’ll have to fill a quota and splash in some so-called diversity and inclusion,” Jesse told the Washington Post‘s “Cape Up” podcast. “It’s starting from a different perspective, a black perspective. We’re gonna include ourselves.”

Pictured: Jesse attends Opening Ceremony‘s Fall 2017 runway show “A Modern Western” with Jason Segel, Ashley Graham, Ashton Sanders, and more this weekend in Los Angeles.

Jesse Williams Gets Real About Diversity in the Film Industry

Jesse Williams looks smoking hot in this new feature for Hunger magazine, on newsstands March 16.

The 35-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star talked to the glossy about diversity in Hollywood and in film.

“People thought that they had to whitewash every movie to make people go and see it, but that’s statistically bullshit,” Jesse said. “The more diverse a movie is the more money it makes – statistically.”

“I don’t, however, think that celebrities have an obligation to do anything,” he added. “I feel like I have an obligation because I’ve been doing this for a long time, but I don’t impose that on other people.”
