However, cast and crew heard the complaints from LGBT Shondaland fans and were quick to address the situation on social media, saying:
Jared Leto may have terrorized the Suicide Squad cast with disgusting gifts, but even he knew to steer clear of Viola Davis!
A few months ago, the How To Get Away With Murder star revealed the 30 Seconds To Mars singer sent his costars a dead pig to get into character for playing the Joker.
