The Isaiah Washington Flap Continues
Grey's Anatomy won the Golden Globe for Best TV Drama, but the bigger drama is what's happening backstage as Isaiah Washington, who called one of the other actors, T. R. Knight, a "faggot" on the set, continues to deny he ever said it. And that it's any big deal. Well, it was a big deal to T. R., who is a very shy and sweet person, because the story got out and he ended up the focus of a tabloid story. Handling it with grace, he came out and said that he was gay, but that being called a "faggot" was the equivalent of calling someone a "nigger." And if THAT had happened, as in the Michael Richards incident, there'd be a seismic upheaval. Here's T. R. discussing the incident on the Ellen Show.
