Isaiah Washington’s still going on and on about his firing. Yeah, getting fired sucks and you did do everything they said to make up for it. But you shouldn’t have been a dumbass (squared) in the first place. Now go find another job. You make people uneasy, and you seem like a loon. Anyway, “seems like” has been replaced with “is” since he says that T.R. Knight should have been fired instead of him. What the hell did T.R. do? Whining and carrying an imaginary cross around on your back isn’t grounds for firing!
“They fired the wrong guy,” says Isaiah Washington.
Washington, 43, who was let go on June 7, has been slammed with negative publicity since October, when he uttered an anti-gay slur during an on-set disagreement with costar Patrick Dempsey.
In a telephone interview with the Houston Chronicle, Washington claims that it was Knight who propagated the idea that the slur was targeted at him and created a negative work environment.
More on what Isaiah Washington had to say, plus what J. has to say about the whole thing after the jump.
Washington also told the Chronicle that he believes Knight, 34, likely wanted a salary increase and a more substantive role for his character.
Washington also went on to say that he and McCreamy or whatever they call him had shaken hands and everything was resolved. And that he made a mistake thinking the cast was “family” and that he could express himself with them and then resolve issues. For future reference, as a homosexual – I don’t take people calling me “faggot” as a form of expression. Usually, it’s grounds for me to punch someone square in the nuts. Unless I was famous and could go on “Ellen” and talk about it. Cuz’, that’s preferable and who doesn’t like Ellen? Except for when she wears things like that Little Dutch Boy tie she wore to the Daytime Emmys. That was wrong.
