Poor McDreamy! Former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star just can’t catch a break as fans of the series have started seriously trolling Patrick Dempsey on Twitter and Instagram. Click inside to see what they are saying!
Patrick Dempsey, 50, will never live down his unfortunate death on Grey’s Anatomy after ten glorious seasons as the handsome male lead, best known as “McDreamy.” Once he started posting photos of his favorite hobbies, cars and racing, fans caught on and have been reminding him almost daily of how Derek Shepherd died. Eek!
Derek Shepherd died tragically after his SUV was smashed into head-first by a massive truck. Even though he lived long enough to make it to the hospital, they didn’t get him a brain CT and he ended up becoming a vegetable during surgery. This left his wife, Meredith, forced to pull the plug on his life, and also devastated fans of the show. Unfortunately for Patrick Dempsey, it seems they may never get over it!
When Patrick posted a picture of him smiling behind the wheel of his car, fans started to totally freak out that he wasn’t paying attention to the road. Actually, they started to freak out that Derek — a fictional but also dead character — was not paying attention to the road. No, really.
But it didn’t stop there. Fans brought the trolling to Patrick’s Twitter, too, and they have been berating him for not being at Grey-Sloane Memorial Hospital — again, a fictional hospital — working as the neurosurgeon we all came to love.
Honestly, you just have to check out these tweets and comments for yourself:

As for the Instagram comments, well.. they are seemingly never-ending. It appears to have started on THIS picture, and just by scrolling through you can see that fans are having a ball reminding him of how Derek died.
“Eyes on the road derek. 10&2 plz,” reads one comment. “This. This is why you died abd broke the hearts of many people including your wife, Meredith. Eyes on the road, Derek. Eyes on the road and save lives,” reads another, much more in-depth comment.
Shortly after he posted a picture of a tractor, which also got his fans all riled up. “Why are you driving a tractor you have patients!!?” one fan asked, jokingly… we hope. Another one read, “ride that tractor back to greys.” Geez, those fans are relentless! (And hilarious, major kudos to them all.)
