Shonda Rhimes fires back at Black Lives Matter critics moments after blame was pointing towards the movement.

“If I hear one more idiot suggest that #BlackLivesMatter incited this… The level of ignorance is stunning. Just absolutely stunning,”

She posted on her twitter feed.

In a statement posted Friday, Black Lives Matter representatives called the Dallas murders “a tragedy — both for those who have been impacted by yesterday’s attack and for our democracy.” The statement continued, “There are some who would use these events to stifle a movement for change and quicken the demise of a vibrant discourse on the human rights of Black Americans. We should reject all of this. Black activists have raised the call for an end to violence, not an escalation of it. Yesterday’s attack was the result of the actions of a lone gunman. To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible. We continue our efforts to bring about a better world for all of us.”

In addition to calling out critics of Black Lives Matter, Rhimes wrote that she feels the real issue people should be discussing is gun control. “Why isn’t anyone talking about gun control? Last night, a man with a high powered rifle committed a mass shooting. Again. GUN CONTROL.”

Ms. Shonda is one among many others that have spoken up against the back lash that #BLM and by default all black people are now receiving, many including black music artist and athletes. Shonda Rhimes is the writer for such TV shows like, Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, Greys Anatomy and many others. She also heads her own production company – Shondaland.
