Also, reassuring us that they’re actually not completely spineless, ABC has fired Isaiah Washington from Grey’s Anatomy for what they have called “a pattern of problematic behavior”. Apparently, he was an asshole before he outted himself as a homophobe.
In the midst of Washington having to pay penance for calling T R Knight a “faggot” on the set of the show, he was given an award by the apparently culturally comatose NAACP but that doesn’t matter. No soup for you Isaiah Washington.
T R Knight was reported to have been given a massive pay increase in his renewed contract.
Compared to the amount of press the “faggot incident” got, the coverage of Washington’s firing is pretty meager. But then, that’s understandable to a certain extent. After all…there appears to be something else going on right now that is taking precedent. [source]
