Isaiah Washington Meets With Gay Activists

Yesterday the New York Times reported that excutives over at ABC were "mulling," over the future of Isaiah Washington who plays Dr. Burke on their hit show, Grey's Anatomy after his comments last week at the Globes denying calling T.R. Knight a "faggot," during an on-set scuffle last October. You know the story, right? Okay well according to an unnamed source at the network, "Mr. Washington's behavior could be considered grounds for dismissal under Disney's corporate antidiscrimination policy." Isaiah apologized for the entire situation and said that he was seeking help for "issues I obviously need to examine within my own soul." And seek help he did. Yesterday Isaiah met with a bunch of Gay activists over at the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network to examine the possibility of making some PSA's that would educate the public about using such hateful words. "He seemed very sincere in his interest in working with us in an ongoing basis," Kevin Jennings, executive director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. "We emphasized that this is not a one-shot deal, but an ongoing thing. He was very open to doing this." So now everyone is saying that Isaiah seems sincere and should be given a second chance, but here's the reality: THIS was second chance. I mean didn't we all give him a second chance back in October after it came out that he used the word in the first place? So technically this would be his third chance and he doesn't desserve one. I know he's a popular character on Grey's and you won't find a person on this planet who loves this show as much as I do, but ABC needs to send a message that this behavior won't be tolerated or rewarded. Am I wrong?
