2016 BET Awards - Show

Jesse Williams‘ speech at the 2016 BET Awards was monumental.

Despite backlash from conservatives like Stacey Dash and Tomi Lahren, Twitter loved everything the actor/humanitarian said about racial and social injustice when he hit the stage Sunday night.

Even days after, Twitter is still feeling so inspired by his speech that users are calling for June 27 to become Jesse Williams Appreciation Day. A quick search of the hashtag #JesseWilliamsAppreciationDay yields tons of fans standing behind the actor’s call for change.

Check out some of the best tweets below:

We’re so down for this holiday.
