Come for Jesse Williams…

“Come for Jesse Williams
and his fans come for you!”

Since when did it become a crime to gracefully deliver a powerful and inspiring speech while raising awareness to the injustices that millions face every day? Apparently, according to viewer Erin Smith, Jesse Williams of ABC’S Grey’s Anatomy “spewed a racist hate speech against law enforcement and white people at the BET Awards”.

Jesse Williams was honored at the prestigious award show for his work as an activist and was the recipient of the “Humanitarian Award”. With his background, it’s natural for him to address the “elephant in the room” – and racism is a big elephant to address.  After Williams’ moving speech, Smith felt some type of way and started a petition on Change.org calling for Williams’ termination from the network. Executive Producer, Shonda Rhimes, shut her down with a simple tweet, “Um people, Boo don’t need a petition” to her 1.25 million followers and elegantly ended it with a classic, “#shondalandrules”.

    I’m sure that’s what EVERYONE was thinking. I’m sure she learned her lesson. NO ONE comes after Jesse…. NO ONE!
