Former Grey’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington is blaming his recent firing on racism rather than his own bad behavior:
Washington, who initially used the epithet during an onset clash with a co-star, told Newsweek magazine that “someone heard the booming voice of a black man and got really scared and that was the beginning of the end for me.”
The epithet was “faggot” and was directed at co-star T.R. Knight, who handled the situation as graciously as he could. Perhaps someone just heard the “booming voice” of an asshole and decided it’s best not to keep assholes around.
