The Grey’s Anatomy folks are at it again!
In the press room at the Golden Globes, Isaiah Washington jumped in front of his executive producer boss – who was talking about their best show win – and announced to the press that he never called T.R. Knight a “faggot.” Isaiah’s outburst caused T.R. who was standing there, to look off to the side visibly uncomfortable, and Katherine Heigl to tell Access Hollywood immediately after that Isaiah "needs to just not speak in public.”
After his press room outburst, Isaiah sat with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush and Nancy O’Dell and again denied using the slur.
"No, I did not call T.R. a faggot," he told Access Hollywood. "Never happened, never happened."
In an interview that is set to air today on Ellen, T.R. says that hearing Isaiah calling him a that word on the set of Grey’s is what caused him to come out of the closet – and hearing Isaiah deny that he said it on Monday has left him speechless.
"It's an awesome word, isn't it?" T.R. reportedly tells Ellen sarcastically. "I've never been called that to my face. So I think when that happened, something shifted, and it became bigger than myself... I was under no delusions. My friends on the set knew. We talked about it. Publicly it's not my thing to call up People magazine and be like, 'Hey, you want to know something about me?' ... I could've just let it slide and not said anything, but it became important. It became important to make the statement."
Do you believe Isaiah when he says he didn’t use the “f” word? I really don’t...
