This is worse than when Dr Patrick from Offspring died.

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read any further if you’re not completely up to date with Grey’s Anatomy.

It’s like the Dr Patrick moment all over again.

Crazy Grey’s Anatomy fans are petitioning to have McDreamy, aka Dr Derek Shepherd, aka Patrick Dempsey, brought back from the dead because they just cannot handle life without him.

They just aren’t ready to let him go.

Following on from last week’s ridiculous episode that saw McDreamy’s demise and collectively broke the hearts of millions of fans around the world, one hardcore Grey’s viewer has created a Change.org petition to get the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, to just be like ‘jokes, you guys. Derek is back. It was all a dream’.

The petition has almost 60,000 signatures at the time of writing this, which has seriously increased from the measly 25,000 it had a couple of hours ago.

Love is dead, because Derek is dead.

The die-hard fan who created the petition, Courtney Williams, is obviously not coping very well since the episode aired.

“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!”

Look, Courtney. We don’t really know if this is going to work. But props for being dedicated enough to try.

And ps. Don’t mess with the Grey’s fans. They be cray.
