Isaiah Washington issued an apology yesterday for using a gay slur for the second time at the Golden Globes. GLAAD demanded an apology from his ass and T.R. Knight told Ellen Degeneres that he was saddened by Isaiah’s use of the word again.
Neil Giuliano, President of GLADD, said, “We are encouraged by Isaiah Washington’s statement today, and optimistic that it may mark a turning point in this deeply troubling situation.” Isaiah has also agreed to meet with GLAAD next week.
Isaiah’s second apology still isn’t enough for some people and the petition going around demanding his termination from Grey’s Anatomy is still getting signatures.
Personally as a fag I think it’s up to T.R. Knight and nobody else. If T.R. wants him gone, he should go. You know people make mistakes and I think Isaiah probably was drunk, stupid and wasn’t thinking. I know that isn’t an excuse and it’s disgusting, but I’m sure he’s getting punished enough. I really think the producers will quietly write him out very soon. He’s a liability now and probably making problems with some of the show’s advertisers. In the end, ABC will only fire him if they are losing money.
