‘Grey’s Anatomy’ fans just can’t catch a break! After the sudden loss of Dr. Derek Shepherd, viewers of the show are upset yet again for a major storyline faux-pas that occurred on the April 30 episode.
Don’t mess with Grey’s Anatomy fans. (Ahem, Shonda Rhimes!) After reeling over the death of McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey), avid watchers of the show are mad once more — and they’re lashing out on social media. The main reason? Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) and Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) didn’t return for Derek’s funeral. It. Just. Doesn’t. Make. Sense. See what angry fans had to say!
Addison & Cristina Don’t Return For Derek’s Funeral: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Fans React
Whoa — we seriously can’t believe what we just watched. In the shocking April 30 episode of Grey’s Anatomy, only about ten seconds were given to cover Dr. Derek’s funeral. So rude. We hardly even got to mourn him!
Another sin? Addison and Cristina were noticeably absent from this super-short scene. Fans are enraged because they truly believe that both ladies would have attended — and we agree. Check out the reactions below!
Where the hell was Cristina Yang? She would have been there. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 not amused, Grey’s Anatomy.

So far, I’m VERY disappointed with Grey’s Anatomy. Meredith better be meeting up with Christina, Izzy, and Addison right now I swear to God.

I’m hoping Meredith went to California to see Addison. Otherwise, idk what the f*ck this episode is. #GreysAnatomy

Realistically Burke Christina Izzy & Addison ALL would have been at his funeral. This is a HORRIBLE way to end his character! #GreysAnatomy

We second all of these tweets!
No other TV fans are more passionate than Grey’s viewers. Seriously. On April 28, news surfaced that many of them came together to petition a return of Patrick’s character. The petition, which was started on Change.org has already garnered over 50,000 signatures. Take that, Shonda!
“This is important because you cannot have people invest a DECADE into a character and then you just terminate them like that!” the petition’s creator, Courtney Williams, writes. “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!”
HollywoodLifers — are you an angry Grey’s Anatomy fan, too? What do you think of Cristina and Addison’s absence from Derek’s funeral? Sound off in the comments!
