2016 BET Awards - Arrivals


Yet another nonsensical reaction to Jesse Williams after his acceptance speech for his Humanitarian Award at the BET Awards.

Now, some fans of  his show Grey’s Anatomy are claiming that his “racist” speech was in bad taste, and ant-white, with some even threatening to boycott the long-running show as a result.

There is a petition circulating that has 462 signatures, and many other posts on social media asking for Williams to pay for his apparently racist remarks.

Good thing two of the most important names involved in Grey’s are standing in strong support of their colleague.

Looks like both Rhimes and Pompeo are on the winning side, clarifying that Williams is definitely not going anywhere.
