Well, Rhimes has had enough of all the social media hate, and she took to Twitter to shut it down with one sassy tweet. In a response to a fan's comment that read "we hate you," she let them know they are only wasting their time.

However, fans are not letting up, and on Rhimes' tweet, there are several messages from very angry fans, two of which read, "Fans should continue to let her know via social media, her horrid treatment of them is in part why they don't watch" and, "Hey @Shondarhimes, we won't waste our valuable time watching your shows either. We'll find a show that brings joy, not death & destruction."

Rhimes is a fantastic writer, and this is why she gets such strong reactions from the fans of her shows. And her Twitter bio says it best. "I make stuff up for a living. Remember, it's not real, okay? Don't tweet me your craziness."
