It never fails! There’s always a small group of people who are butt-hurt when Blacks stand up and speak out for their rights! But instead of these idiots just replying online with their stupidity and racism, some of them are actually trying to get a celeb fired!
After Jesse Williams received his BET Humanitarian Award this year, he gave an incredible acceptance speech highlighting all of the struggles Blacks have put up with for centuries like cultural appropriation, police brutality, systematic oppression; which got a standing ovation from the audience! At the same time, Williams also expressed how together we can and will rise above it, whether the rest of the country is with us or not.
This apparently came across as “hate speech” to certain idiots, who in return are now petitioning to get the actor fired from Greys Anatomy at Change.org.
“Jesse Williams spewed a racist, hate speech against law enforcement and white people at the BET awards. If this was a white person making the same speech about an African American, they would have been fired and globally chastised, as they should be, but there has been no consequences to Williams’ actions. There’s been no companies making a stand against his racist remarks and no swift action condemning his negative attitude.”
Just in case people were wondering if anything’s going to happen in regards to this petition to get Jesse fired from G.A., Shonda Rhimes, the show’s creator, went to Twitter to let fans know how she felt and shut shit down.
Um, people? Boo don't need a petition. #shondalandrules
