Shonda Rhimes and the stars of her TGIT lineup are showing support for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. In a new ad that was directed by Tony Goldwyn, Rhimes alongside Kerry Washington, Ellen Pompeo, and Viola Davis describe the characters they play as “brilliant,” “complex” women who fight for justice and give voice “to the voiceless.” “Our characters are on television,” Washington says. She and the others then add, “The real world has Hillary Clinton.”

In the ad Clinton is called “a bonafide, rolls up her sleeves, fights for what’s right, in it for you, won’t back down champion for all of us.”

And the lovefest continued on Twitter:

An ABC spokesperson issued a statement on the ad Thursday night, saying, “This was a paid political advertisement placed on a number of stations. Broadcasters are required by the FCC to carry these ads.”
