Grey's Anatomy Cast & Shonda Rhimes 'Take A Knee' At 300th Episode Party
The cast of Grey's Anatomy and showrunner Shonda Rhimes protest against racial injustice during their 300th episode party.
The Grey's Anatomy cast has been busy with filming Grey's Anatomy Season 14, but that hasn't stopped them from being vocal about the racial injustices occurring in society today. Earlier this month, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) fired off against Trumps supporters on Twitter, while Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery) made headlines during an interview with MSNBC when he stated that the national anthem wasn't part of NFL tradition and called out the "cowardice and selfishness" of NFL owners. Now, the Grey's Anatomy cast and showrunner Shonda Rhimes are showing their support for the NFL to protest racial injustice across the US after Donald Trump called for the firing or suspension of NFL players who chose to kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Rhimes shared a photo of herself, Pompeo, Williams, and Debbie Allen (Catherine Avery) kneeling with their hands over their hearts, on her Instagram. The photo was taken during the cast's 300th episode party.
Rhimes captioned the photo, "And we took a knee in solidarity of racial justice."
Pompeo also shared her own #TakeAKnee and 300th episode photo with the caption, "We kneel because we are supposed to be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Williams then shared his own Instagram photo, which featured a much larger group of the Grey's Anatomy cast, including Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), Jason George (Ben Warren), Jessica Capshaw (Arizona Robbins), Sarah Drew (April Kepner), Giacomo Gianniotti (Andrew DeLuca), Caterina Scorsone (Amelia Shepherd), and Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt).
Williams captioned his photo, "Wherever I go, I’m me. This life, is a 'we' thing."
