He should have said: "I wasn't calling T.R. a fag, I was ASKING for one. I'm british and just wanted to borrow a cig."

It is a good thing to keep a fire going by putting a lot of faggots on it

Sometimes when I see the kind of BS generated after Mr. Washington's comments, I can't help but wish that some of the faggots you mention were not of the wooden variety.

I gather from all this it's also inhuman and ideally illegal to say "no I didn't call someone a nigger". Wait, it'd be ok for washington to call someone a nigger, cause he's black. Similarly "fag" or "faggot" is a term of affection among gays - at least it was in Australia when I lived there, in Sydney you can't avoid them. So presumably it would have been just fine for T.R. Knight to (say) call Washington a faggot... but not a nigger, cause T.R. is white...!?!

Now I really have confused myself. Time to put my head into a bucket of cold water again, and hope it's all gone away when I come back up.

I'm about to put down money that Isaiah Washington won't be back next season at minimum.

When was the last time an african-american had to apologize ad nauseum for something they'd said? I'm loving this.

Rumor has it a main character on Grey's is leaving... rumor also has it Washington is the leading candidate.

ABC apologizing for an employee's opinion.

Hmmmm, I don't recall ABC apologizing for Rosie and Co. hateful rants about Christians, Chinese Americans, Republicans, calling Rumsfeld "Hitler", calling Bush every name in the book, coddling drunks and admitting to lying on the air.

Leads one to the conclusion that ABC must support all of that or they would send out an apology.

He has now entered re-education, er, therapy for his remarks. Interesting.

Yeah, "interesting" in a strictly Orwellian sense, I suppose.

Not too surprising. If you were stuck deep inside communist North Korea and spoke evil against 'Dear Reader', you would issue an apology too (if you valued your career or your life.)
