What does everyone think of Isaiah Washington's comments at the Golden Globes on Monday? Here is a link to the story:

Do we know if this was truly said as an attack, or just a stupid comment? I'm not picking up in that from the article.

From what I have read, he said it as an attack back in October, and then denied saying it at all on Monday.

Two of the stars from the show (including the one who was called the slur) both confirm that he made the comment back in October and should not have used it again on Monday.

Well, to use the word to deny using the word is rather tacky. What if Knight's response to Washington included the N word? Would that be a greater injustice? I wouldn't advocate using such language, either way.

I agree with you, this is just another example of "celebrities" who seriously need to shut up.

Washington jumped in front of the whole cast backstage (after they won the Golden Globe) and just blurted out that he didn't call TR a "f-", that it never happened. Everyone behind him (his castmates) looked shocked, and the whole situation was very awkward. No one had even brought it up before he shot off his mouth. Talk about putting the brakes on their celebratory mood...

I think Katherine Heigl said it best afterwards when she said that he just needs not to talk in public anymore...

That is just nuts. Is this guy just looking for publicity or to get thrown off the show?

I just read today that has started counseling. Do you think it's enough to save his job? There is an on-line petition with close to 20,000 signatures asking ABC to let him go.

He's an actor in Grey's Anatomy, who said a gay slur at the Golden Globes in the press room, the second time he used the slur in a few months. It totally overshadowed the fact that the show won the Golden Globe for best drama.

This must be a new trend, say any insulting thing you want and if someone calls you on it then you claim you have a problem and need counseling. Do they have jerk counseling?

Some gay rights association wanted to talk to him to understand why he said what he said. You can't understand how a racist mind works.

I guess so LOL

It just boggles my mind that anyone would says such hateful slurs. When you're in the public eye, you really need to keep your mouth shut.

I must be the only one who doesn't understand what the problem is. He's alleged to have called another actor on the show a "f-----." IR responded by saying he didn't call him a "f-----." In his reply, IR wasn't calling him a "f-----," he was merely denying his use of the word. It comes down to context. Just because he uttered the word doesn't mean that's how he feels about the person.

I think the gay rights community has gone over the top with its reaction, just like Rosie did in calling Kelly Ripka's actions "homophobic."
