Jesse Williams Gets Real — And Gets A Standing Ovation — With A POWERFUL Humanitarian Award Acceptance Speech At The 2016 BET Awards!

Filed under: InspirationBET AwardsCharity

The 2016 BET Awards got realer than they've ever been on Sunday night.

Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams was presented with the Humanitarian Award for his work promoting equality and speaking out against police brutality with the Black Lives Matter movement.

He got the crowd to their feet almost immediately with his strong words but did NOT stop with the mic drop lines like:

"If you have no interest in equal rights for Black people then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down."

and

"Just because we're magic doesn't mean we're not real."

Watch the entire speech (above)!

Justice 4 Flint

While most A-listers were gathering in El Lay for the Oscars on Sunday night, other celebs decided to skip the awards ceremony and rally behind Flint, Michigan.

Good on 'em!!

Creed director Ryan Coogler put on the "Justice for Flint" event hosted by comedian Hannibal Buress. Other stars in attendance were Ava DuVernay and Jesse Williams, who were among those to enjoy incredible performances by Janelle Monae and Stevie Wonder.

The event aimed to raise $100,000 for the community affected by the terrible water contamination crisis — and as of right now, they've exceeded that goal by $50,000! Woo!

Not to worry, there's no drama here. Coogler said the Academy Awards had nothing to do with the fundraiser being held the same day — but instead to honor Black History Month. He told Buzzfeed:

"With the #JUSTICEFORFLINT benefit event we will give a voice to the members of the community who were the victims of the choices of people in power who are paid to protect them, as well as provide them with a night of entertainment, unity, and emotional healing."

Other celebs like Diddy and Michael B. Jordan took to social media in support:
