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.

Minka Kelly & Jesse Williams Are 'Strictly Friends' For Now (Exclusive)

Minka Kelly and Jesse Williams are not dating right now, despite reports that they have been a couple for months, sources exclusively confirm to JustJared.com.

The two stars became friends back in January while working together on the upcoming video game Detroit: Become Human.

Jesse is currently going through a divorce and custody battle with his wife Aryn Drake-Lee. He and Minka are keeping their relationship strictly friendly during this difficult time for his family.

“The truth is, maybe one day things will turn romantic, but they agreed not to cross the line until his life is sorted,” a source told JJ. “Minka has more dignity and respect for herself than to be ‘the other woman.’”

Jesse and Minka were spotted catching a movie together on Monday night (July 10) in West Hollywood, but weren’t seen showing any PDA. “You would see different body language in the photos if they were actually dating,” another source added.

We’ll have to wait and see if a romance blooms between Minka and Jesse, but for now, these two are just friends!

Jesse Williams Spills on Aryn Drake-Lee Divorce in Jay Z's 'Footnotes for 4:44' Video

Jesse Williams is opening up about his divorce from Aryn Drake-Lee back in April.

The 35-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actor and his now ex-wife called it quits after nearly five years of marriage.

Jesse has reportedly been fighting for joint physical and legal custody of their children – Sadie, 4, and Maceo, 21 months.

“I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not 5 years, not 7 years, 13 years,” Jesse said in Jay Z‘s “Footnotes for 4:44” video (via E! News).

“All of a sudden mother f–kers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship – like thee most painful experience I’ve had in my life like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart – that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute,” he added.

Chris Rock, Will Smith, Kendrick Lamar, Anthony Anderson, Aziz Ansari, and more also open up about their relationships in the 11-minute Tidal video.
