Jesse Williams Is Blissed Out in Maui While Haters Hate

It appears the star accused of racism will be OK in paradise.

Let’s recap the drama surrounding Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams right now: After the star delivered an impassioned speech during the BET Awards, in which he demanded equal civil rights and fair police treatment for people of color, many people applauded what they felt were inspiring words.

But a subset of viewers also skewered the actor for what they deemed “racist” remarks. A petition on Change.org has even emerged that urges he be fired from his job. (Which, ha, show creator Shonda Rhimes is not having any of.)

Well, it appears the haters haven’t crushed his spirits — not even a little bit — given that the star has been enjoying the world’s most beautiful island and its dreamy turquoise waters.

Indeed, Jesse is holidaying in Maui with his co-star Ellen Pompeo, and her Instagram shots reveal the pair are having a blast.

Ellen posted a snap showing the two standup paddle boarding, and then followed it up with a video in which he playfully jerks the board causing her to tumble into the water.
