Grey's Anatomy's Derek Shepherd no more: Rumor has it that it was due to his diva attitude!
The knot in your stomach, the sudden beating of your heart and the moment when you realise that it is not a hoax- Derek Shepherd, or as I would always remember him- McDreamy is dead. DEAD!! To all Grey's Anatomy fans- we all are together in this and to non fans- don't even bother, you would never get the hurt and the betrayal we are feeling right now for Shonda Rhimes. How could she just kill of the main lead in the most sought after medical drama after 11 years?

Do not roll your eyes, if you are yet to invest your time in a show, which has not only made jargons like teratoma normal words, but have also given us loving characters and messy relationships- something, which everyone identifies with. If rumor mills are to be believed then Derek Shepherd was killed off as Patrick Dempsey was recently behaving like a troublesome diva and Rhimes has little tolerance for such people as we know from history.

While it is yet to come to India, America has seen the demise of Shepherd- a neurosurgeon and the love of the life of Meredith Grey. The beloved character, who is played by Patrick Dempsey was killed off in a car accident, which is ironical as Dempsey himself is known to race. The entire globe is fuming over the news and tweeting their heart out. Memes criticizing Shonda Rhimes (creator of Grey's Anatomy) has started making the rounds. Twitter is reacting strongly and with full reasons.

Meanwhile, Network ABC have issued a statement, ''After 11 seasons on Grey's Anatomy, Patrick Dempsey is moving on to pursue other interests. Dr. Derek Shepherd is an iconic character and we've been proud to be the home of "McDreamy" and the "Mer/Der" love story.'' Even Dempsey, who had signed a two year deal extension of his contract last year, was a bit taken aback but played it normal when he talked to Entertainment weekly and said, ''It just sort of evolved. It's just kind of happened. It really was something that was kind of surprising that unfolded,and it just naturally came to be. Which was pretty good. I like the way it has all played out.''

Twitter has been trending #GreysAnatomy for quite some time now. Even cast member Kevin McKidd tweeted his disbelief

The official Twitter account of Grey's Anatomy also tweeted their heartbreak

Millions others reacted in their own ways

This is however not the first time that a lead character has been shown the door by the makers of Grey's Anatomy. Shonda Rhimes, who gets on well with almost the entire cast has a non nonsense attitude. Previously Isaiah Washington, better known as Preston Burke and Katherine Heigl or Izzobell Stevens has been shown the door for their diva attitude and bad behaviour. However, this time Rhimes could have been a little easier in Dempsey as the man is going through a divorce from his wife of 16 years Jilian Filk. But, it seems that she runs a tight ship and doesn't let anyone to falter.

With a heavy heart and many memories- Rest In Peace Derek Shepherd.
