Nearly two weeks since expressing his views on “justify-anything” Americans, actor Jesse Williams returned to his personal Twitter account on Monday evening to respond to the violence that escalated in Baltimore, Maryland on Monday.

Similar to his previous comments on police misconduct and race relations in America, the “Grey’s Anatomy” star took some media outlets to task over their use of the term “riot" when describing Monday's violent protests against police over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.

Williams’ candid thoughts adds to the growing list of celebrities who have spoken out on the violence between police and protestors.
