When ABC fired Isaiah Washington's ass from "Grey's Anatomy" he issued a statement saying "I'm mad as hell and not going to take it anymore." He wasn't lying or joking around.
Isaiah's spokeswhore told TV Guide that he's not happy. Duh, bitch just got fired! He'll be fine after a few dozen martinis. According to Howard Bragman, Isaiah's rep, he doesn't know why ABC didn't fire him right after the "F-Word" incident.
Howie said, "why didn't they fire him when [the incident] happened? Why did they say, 'Here's what you need to do if you want to come back… ' and then, when he did everything that was asked of him, he still gets fired. Why do you treat somebody like that?"
"Ifyou made a mistake, you acknowledged the mistake, you went into counseling, you met with the groups, you did the PSA, you did everything that was asked of you, and then they still kick you in the gut? How would you feel?"
Howie said they were going to have more conversations with ABC, but they aren't ruling out a possible lawsuit. WHAT?!
This is my thinking. ABC gave his ass a chance and when he got back on set and there was still tension and weirdness they decided it was in the best interest of the show to let his ass go. I think they tried, but it was just a lost cause. Like make-up sex. Except this make-up sex wasn't that great I guess.
Isaiah will get another job and the world will be fine again or something.
