Jesse Williams had the best response on Twitter after a fan lied to her mom by saying the actor was her prom date.

The Twitter user in question, whose name is Ella, took to the social media site to share screenshots of her messages to her mother, including a pic of the “Grey’s Anatomy” actor.

Ella then insisted that he was “very smart” and said he was an activist and very woke.

She even added that he liked history and “Grey’s Anatomy”.
