Someone who just doesnt seem to get it.

As you may or may not know, Isaiah Washington of ABC's Grey's Anatomy recently uttered some derogatory remarks at and about a fellow openly gay cast member.

At any rate, I didnt want to comment on the situation when he talked about going to "rehab" or wherever the hell he went to get his head out of his ass and to realize why what he said is akin to someone calling him "nigger".

But now that he's talking in the media again here are some nice quotes he's made regarding the situation and his subsequent firing:

In a statement to People magazine, Washington says, "I sincerely regret my actions and the unfortunate use of words during the recent incident on-set.

"Both are beneath my own personal standards. I have nothing but respect for my co-workers and have apologized personally to everyone involved."

In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Washington says, "I can only apologize so many times. I can only accept so much responsibility. All the players involved have taken care of what we needed to take care of in-house - and the media took it in a different direction. I hope that everyone is happy for the outcome for Isaiah, but Isaiah will go on and do what I love to do. And I have to go about the business of letting people know what's written about me is not the truth."

So there you have it. When he physically and verbally attacked a fellow cast member of the show, it wasn't ALL his fault it was the media and other people (such as the "gay mafia" according to one of his close friends).

Fuck he found everyone out, this was all a setup to hire him for a show and pay him $2.7 million a year and then hire an openly gay cast member and continually aggravate him until he lashed out. We all should have known better I guess. His smugness and excuses sound like a drunk guy who beats his wife making rationalizations for his actions.

  1. No worries. Every derogatory word in the English language will be illegal soon enough.

  2. It's not illegal to say it, but someone doesnt need to work someplace and be treated like shit for who they are and what they cant help being.

    Also he punch-a-sized him too, so yeah.

  4. People cant pick if they are gay, straight or whatever. You are something and you are like that separate from your choice.

  5. But they can learn about the mathmatics behind it.
    You can become straight of they follow the gay ratio:

    S=((G^3)-(O^2))*(B^S)
    S=straight
    G=Gay relationships
    O=Oral Only
    B=Relationships with Bears
    S=# of sailors

    This theorem states that for every gay relationship you have, there is a specific number of hetero encounters you can have to "undo" your gayness.

    I think we had this pretty well worked out back at FNG, but my numbers may be a bit off
