You might not care about Grey’s Anatomy. I certainly don’t, and I never did. But even if you’re in the same boat, you’ll probably still get a kick out of the Twitter reaction to the shocking plot twist on this week’s episode.
Here’s what happened…
***MAJOR SPOILER ALERT, DUMMIES***
Dr. McDreamy? AKA Dr. Derek Sheperd, AKA Patrick Dempsey, AKA that kid from 80s classics Lover Boy and Can’t Buy Me Love? He dead. Killed off in a car accident.
To be frank, I did not even realize this show was on the air. But I learned it was on real quick when my Facebook and Twitter feeds were suddenly filled with posts expressing outrage and contempt at Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rimes.
Honestly, it was hilarious. Take a look at just a small sampling of the hysteria:

Of course, the best reaction tweet was actually a reaction to the reaction:
I'm hysterical at how upset folks r about #GreysAnatomy . They love their fictional pals. Now how do we get them 2 care about REAL people?

Well said, Mr. Fierstein. Everybody just chill the eff out.
