'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes responds to petition to fire Jesse Williams

Dr. Avery is here to stay.

Jesse Williams, the actor who plays Dr. Jackson Avery on “Grey’s Anatomy,” gave a speech about race and criticized police in America at the BET Awards on June 26, and it apparently offended some people.

>> Watch the full speech here

Those who were offended by the so-called “racist rant” have created a petition calling for the actor’s dismissal from the show, and so far, it has more than 16,000 signatures.

“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,” the petition reads.

>> BET Awards: Jesse Williams delivers impassioned speech on race in America

In a defiant twist, another petition was filed that supports Williams and calls him, “a brave leader.” That petition currently has more than 25,000 signatures.

“Jesse Williams is a bright man, passionate spokesman and a committed advocate of black people and #BlackLivesMatter who took a public stand on BET Awards show, risking his job and career for his beliefs,” the supportive petition explains.

“Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes also had something to say about the petition calling for Williams to be fired.

On Monday, she took to Twitter to express her feelings, writing, “um, people? Boo don’t need a petition. #shondalandrules.”

Mic drop.

Fans of Shondaland applauded “the boss” and showed their appreciation on social media.

People who want to connect with old friends and classmates need only send a message on the social media platform to reconnect, strike up a conversation and plan meetups.

But what if you're sending messages that are never seen? And what if people are sending you messages that you've never seen?

A Facebook messaging feature holds messages from Facebook users who you are not Facebook friends with in a separate folder.

To see the hidden messages, you must access message requests in your account.

Here's how to do it:

Facebook (online): Click on the messages icon at the top of the screen in the blue bar > Message Requests > See filtered requests

Messenger app (mobile): Settings > People > Message Requests > See filtered requests

Have fun perusing old messages, and hopefully, it's not too late to respond to some of them!
