Gay Hater Speaks Out

| Filed under: Isaiah WashingtonPolitik


It was only a matter of time before gay-hater and former Grey's Anatomy actor Isaiah Washington spoke out about the recent scandal surrounding the show.

Isaiah was fired from the show after making repeated homophobic and derogatory remarks back in 2007.

But, now, he's speaking out about the recent firing of Brooke Smith, one of the show's gay characters.

Washington says, "I looked at a brilliant actress, whom I have adored since I first saw her in Silence of the Lambs. For her to be treated this way, I find very interesting."

Washington adds, "The fact is that, just before the holidays, you have a mother, a wonderful actress removed from a steady income without the proper reasoning behind it… You look at the way another consummate professional [is] being treated because her character, her story line [has] potentially made producers uncomfortable."

And the delusional former cast mate continues, "Now that I see what they're doing to a show that I love and I care about, I think it's disgusting. The fact that Shonda has been put in this position is extremely unfair.
It's unfortunate because it was probably, at the time, the most progressive show on television. Now I see it [being] systematically torn apart. Bring Burke back!"

Oh, and here's the best part, asked if he'd return to the show, despite all the drama, Isaiah says, "Absolutely!"

Of course he would. No work means no money!

    Well, the show was good when he was on it. He did atone for his awful statements about gays. Not cool man! But, he made up for it. I did not like the way it ended either for the actress! JMO!

    Sadly, I know lots of mothers who being laid off and losing their jobs. Because of the economy, these brilliant and hard-working mothers have no guarantee that they will have work through the new year and beyond. They are also consummate professionals with house and car payments, kids to educate and groceries to buy. Isaiah, you might admire their acting skills as well. While they live in terror of not being able to provide for their families, they put on a happy face and pretend for their children that everything is going to be alright. They are actresses and I am one of them. I should get an Academy Award.
    The good side to all of this is that now when I watch Gray's, I don't have to change the channel when my 11-year-old-son walks into the room.

    Just because the guy said the word "f@ggot" doesn't make him a "hater"; that's just the way some people talk.How come every time someone says something it gets turned into an anti-gay issue?

  32. 32

    Re: thenerve – your mother is fucking stupid for not swallowing you instead.

  33. 33

    He apologized, let it go..remember Paris Hilton using the F-word and the H-word? Why forgive her and still hold a beef with him?

  34. 34

    I don't understand how people are assuming she was fired for being gay on the show. Obviously the writers wrote her that way so I don't see how that could be the problem. The problem most likely is that most people did not like her character and she and Callie did not have much chemistry. I love Callie with Sloan to be honest. I would also LOVE it if they brought Burke back.

    A fag is a fag, he didn't say anything that was a shocker, we all knew.

  37. 37

    Hey, he is defending her. Why did they fire her b/c she is lesbian? That makes no sense. That show is boring anyway.

    Re: thenerve

    Your dad was fucking stupid for not making you a stain on the bedsheets.

    If he did come back , ratings would SOAR (at least momentarily) Does that piss you off Perez? Let the Gay hater thing go, T.R. did, he wants the ratings back too.

  40. 40

    He's full of shit, he just wants a job.

  41. 41

    Grey's should bring Burke back. The show was better when he was on it, and it would add great storylines to the show. Stop being so sensitive, Perez. He added a lot to the show, and the ratings have gone down significantly since he left.

  42. 42

    Who hasn't said something inappropriate at one point in his life?
    Perez you have made a career out of saying the most inappropriate and crude things you can think of about other people.
    You do NOT have to like what IW said, his acting talent or support his career but you are taking this farther, you want his blood.
    You want this man's career destroyed completely because he used a homophobic slur in a private dispute with his pissy little costar, Patrick Dempsey?
    Dude did not get up on stage and scream vitriol ala Micheal Richards. IW was angry and said something stupid. Everybody's done this but not everyone has been made to publicly apologize for making an imprudent comment while angry.
    Again, you do NOT have to support Isiah Washington's career but I am looking at YOU sideways because you want this person to never work again for something he said in a heated moment 2???? years ago????

    I am 100% gay rights all of the way, but honestly, get over it. It's over and done with and he's obviously trying to change. When I was younger, I always used to say "that's so gay" until someone politely told me that it was offensive. From that point on, I was really careful about not using it and it's worked. Now I understand why it's offensive and I don't use it. Give the guy a chance to change!!! For most people, it doesn't happen overnight. It may take years…

  44. 44

    Bringing Burke back would be awesome, but it probably won't ever happen, unfortunately…

    Put me down for 9001 of those, Vince.

    Why is anyone even listening to this douchebag?

  47. 47

    I miss Dr. Burke. Let's bring him back please!

  48. tetzy says – reply to this


    Lets be real - what was wrong with what her said? It was politically incorrect…big deal. According to all reports, TJ wasn't offended. His return would save the show.

  49. 49

    Who? Can't remember the guy.

  50. 50

    Bring Burke Back!!!

  51. 51

    despite being an egotistical douche bag and obvious hater…..BRING BURKE BACK. I loved his character……the actor may be a douche…but the character was one of my favs…

  52. 52

    I love Isaiah Washingtion!
