'Grey's Anatomy' Fans Launch Petition to Bring McDreamy Back

Ah, America. Land of the free, home of the online petition.

Last week, Grey's Anatomy [SPOILER] killed off Derek "McDreamy" Shephard, (because Shonda Rhimes loves breaking our hearts, apparently). Fans everywhere ugly cried and bemoaned the loss of the fan favorite character. But some Grey's fans weren't going to say goodbye without a fight.

McDreamers have now started an online petition on Change.org to bring Dr. Shephard back from that great TV hospital in the sky. As of this moment, the petition has over 71,000 signatures. The petition reads:

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. COMPLETELY!

Why Shonda, Why?

Why would you do us like this? Dedicated and die-hard fans! We DO NOT deserve this!

It goes on like that for at least 10 more paragraphs and there are a lot of CAPSLOCK FEELINGS. Our favorite section goes something like this: "You do not have someone survive a mass murderer, a plane crash, A FREAKING PLANE CRASH, AND A crushed hand, as a neurosurgeon...just to kill them off on a BEAUTIFUL DAY!! Seriously? SERIOUSLY SHONDA?! SERIOUSLY MS. RHIMES!?!?!?!?!"

Online petitions almost never work (and most certainly won't work in this case since Patrick Dempsey seems like he's at peace with leaving the show, and Grey's producers most certainly knew what the fan reaction would be), but you can't fault fans for trying their hardest to get McDreamy back. CAN YOU?!?!?!?!
