Grey’s Anatomy Fans Backlash: Bring McDreamy Back Petition
I would have never thought that people would go this far just to save a fictional character. I know for most of the fans out there he was an inspiration but he had to leave at some point in time. Don’t you think it is better that he left without all your hatred?
Grey’s Anatomy heartthrob Dr. Derek ‘McDreamy’ Shepherd (Spoiler alert) was killed off in the recent episode of Grey’s Anatomy season 11. Fans all around the world are heartbroken and cursing Shonda Rhimes for killing their beloved character.
In Thursday’s episode, McDreamy met a car accident and his wife Meredith had to pull the life support plug because it was time for Derek to leave.
All fans were upset but one in specific was really really upset, like so much upset that she made her own website Change.org, setting up petitions to bring back Derek. The website asks Rhimes one direct question, ‘Why Shonda, why?’
Petition creator Courtney Williams asks Rhimes to rewrite the episode as a hallucination or dream sequence. The petition has already had 15,000 signatures to bring back the Grey’s Anatomy Dr. Derek back. Read the petition excerpt below!
“This is important because you cannot have people invest a DECADE into a character and then you just terminate them like that! You have people out here donating blood and organs trying to save lives, wanting to become doctors and all from committing to this television show..just to let us down like this. You’ve destroyed us. Why Shonda, why? You cannot have people invest a DECADE into a character and then you just terminate them like that! You’ve destroyed us. COMPLETELY! Why would you do us like this? Dedicated and die-hard fans! We DO NOT deserve this. Then the WAY you chose to build up the anticipation and kill him off?!?CRUELTY! You do not have us hating him, to show up that he is the good guy that we have always believed him to be, then have him say he’s coming home to his family, wanting to add more to the family, then he leaves and saves the day! You bring back his infamous words, ‘Its a beautiful day to save lives,” have him wrap a girls intestines in dry cleaning wrap then kill him off like that! Oh and dont even get me started on how FINE you have him looking too! Its like you said, “we’re going to have him get as sexy as ever…then kill him!” You do no DO THIS TO LOYAL FANS.”
