Happy Endings: The Day Isaiah Needed To Shut Up

washspeaksh.jpg
Isaiah Washington really can’t stop talking about being fired from Grey’s Anatomy. Why? Because you’re all racist:

I apologized and showed my remorse for what I said and for the pain I caused anyone. If a black man can’t get forgiveness in this country, when so many other people like Robert Downey Jr. and the governor of California get second and third chances … I think that says a lot about race and this country where we stand.

Washington also says that he didn’t go to”homophobia rehab”:

There is no rehab for homophobia—that was just some crap being put out by the network. I went into an executive counseling program which many people in this industry know about and go to. They knew what the program was but chose to call it what they wanted to fit their agenda. And more importantly, I volunteered for it because I wanted to understand my fight with Patrick and how it got out of hand like that. I wanted to know what I could do to avoid it happening again.

What a saint. And a studio’s liability.

Watch your ass:

A particularly serious form of the sexually transmitted bacterial disease syphilis has been detected in gay and bisexual U.S. men infected with the AIDS virus, federal health officials reported on Thursday.

Yikes.

DC Comics is just so progressive! They gave gay anti-hero Midnighter his own title! They just avoid that whole gay thing.

• British Prime Minister Gordon Brown loves ladies who love gays – he’s appointed Hazel Blears and Jacqui Smith to his cabinet. Biker babe Blears heads up the Department for Equalities and Local Government ,while Smith steers the Home Office.

      Isaiah needs to get the same forgiveness that Don Imus got re: his “nappy-headed ho’s” comment. None.

      This rube screws up and out comes the “race card”; it’s all about how the poor Isaiah was actually the one down-trodden victim because of his ethnicity, but in reality, he simply chose to call a co-worker a faggot in a heated exchange. And he did it in the work-place. And in front of witnesses that included his colleagues. I can imagine how humiliating that had to have been for the actor/co-worker.

      The news stories regarding the incident reported that all of the co-stars rallied to the defense of the gay actor. I guess they are all racists, too.

      If this matter were reversed, say for example, he had been called the N-word, there would have been the same consequences in the state of California.

      He’s damned lucky (so far) that the recipient of his tirade hasn’t sued him and the ABC network. In my estimation, ABC has shown a great deal of sensitivity in the way it has handled this slur, and fired the evil-doer.

      Yet, he just doesn’t get it…he’s not in Houston any more, he’s in California, a much more stringent and enlightened atmosphere as far as gay-rights are concerned. Oh, and so much for his “apology”; he basically admits that the whole sensitivity class story was bogus.

      California law applies to you too, Isaiah. Hate speak is hate speak.

      I always get Issy Washington mixed up with Nipsey Russell. Is the Nips still with us?

      In the long run, this is the best thing for Mr. Washington because he can always blame the demise of his career on this issue and not the lack of talent.

      Again…just watch..he is going to go the
      700 Club christian tv route……

      Just out of curiosity, since when was Robert Downey Jr. a crazy bigot with a reputation for brawling with his co-workers? It is a completely different situation.

      I’ll say this though…some people do seem to get a pass on their bigot bullshit (Paris Hilton, I’m talking to you!).

      He seriously needs to shut up and go away now. Right now. Any feelings of sympathy I had for him when he was fired have completely disappeared.

      The real pisser in all this is that the MSM (CNN, Newsweek) give him a platform for his Issy-fits without rebuttal or correction…. and except for the gay media, NOBODY mentions that he freakin’ physically attacked Patrick Dempsey.

      Let’s start a buzz that he’s actually doin’ Little Evil Annie Coulter!

      Your headline says it all. Isaiah Washington needs to shut up because everything he says digs him deeper into a hole. The guy’s a complete a-hole who can’t take responsibility for anything.

      If being around some queers is Issiah Washinton’s big fear…maybe show business ain’t his calling.
      Anymore than being anti-semetic. It has nothing to do with Issiah’s race. I suggest Issiah meet and greet Mel Gibson, they sound like a match made at the bank. A sado masochistic Black Jesus…christo facist blacksploitation genre here they come!

      IW definitely just does not know when to shut up. Now he’s going on Larry King to cry about his mistreatment. I am sure by the end of the interview we will all be enlightened by Isaiah re: the severity of our collective racism in the gay community. I hope the gay actor sues him for the comments.

      Underbear, you hit it right on the money…show biz just ain’t his calling. Who would want to work with such a self-important, show-boating, and homo-phobic prick?
