["Grey's Anatomy" Actor Isaiah]Washington to Do Ad for Gay Rights Group
iWon News ^ | May 2, 2007

Isaiah Washington, who came under fire after using an anti-gay slur, will appear in a public service announcement on behalf of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.

"We're gonna have - I want to say at least two versions of it at this point. We may broaden our message a little," the actor's publicist, Howard Bragman, told The Associated Press in a phone interview Wednesday.

Washington ran into trouble at the Golden Globe Awards in January after he used an anti-gay slur during a backstage press conference while denying he'd used it previously against "Grey's Anatomy" castmate T.R. Knight.

People magazine reported last October that Washington had allegedly used the slur during an on-set dustup with co-star Patrick Dempsey.

Knight said soon after the incident that he was gay.

After being criticized by GLAAD, a gay and lesbian advocacy group, and the ABC network, Washington issued an apology and sought counseling.

Bragman said ABC, which is owned by The Walt Disney Co., was planning to shoot the ad in the next few weeks.

A call to ABC seeking comment wasn't immediately returned.

Bragman said Washington, 43, plans to return to "Grey's Anatomy" next year.

"We've heard nothing to the contrary, and we have no plans to the contrary," Bragman said.

The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network seeks to ensure that schools safely accommodate students of all sexual orientations.

“O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.”

Weird, isn’t it? They’re roughly 2% of the population, and they have the rest of us jumping through hoops like trained animals.

Ah yes. There is not enough reason NOT to watch the tube, after all. This way we can NOT watch any network that airs this crap. These networks apparently aren’t in the tank far enough yet.

Because there are those that submit. Without them there is no power.

TR Knight was ‘out’ long before this happened, the article is wrong about that aspect.

We watch the show, and I can’t help but laugh every time they have Knights character in a sex scene with one of the hotties. I wonder if he gets the ‘shakes’ like the guy that was the head of the ‘Brady Bunch’ did.

I guess they suceeded at rehab. I guess he does follow up projects every now and then to ensure he doesn’t “relapse”.

The man needs rehab. He needs to do penance for his sin of not believing in the goodness of homosexuality. Anything that is said against homos is bad bad bad.

I like this guy as an actor. I’m appalled he’s being subjected to this crap. He slammed homosexuals it seems. And he’s going to pay for that for a long time. We can’t have differing opinions anymore, if we differ it’s off to rehab - unless we slam Christians or those who follow the bible or some religious affiliation. Or if we hate Bush and admit he’s the cause and reason for all the world’s problems. Somebody has to give me a reason to continue fighting? lol.
