T.R. Knight: Isaiah Called Me a "Faggot"


On today’s Ellen DeGeneres show, newly-out Grey’s Anatomy actor T.R. Knight states that co-star Isaiah Washington called him a faggot, openly on the Grey’s set for all to hear, and that this was the cause of the ruckus that developed between Washington and Patrick Dempsey.

Someone has posted the interview to YouTube. Knight seems very uneasy even talking about it, but clearly he wants to (or feels driven to) set the record straight and put a slap-down on Washington, who denied the slur again last night backstage at the Golden Globes and in doing so used the word again, dragging all the focus back onto it.

Can you imagine having to show up to work there today?

You can see the full interview today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and if you miss it you can catch it the following week on The Oxygen Channel

Ellen does a great job putting Knight at ease. Very classy. I wonder if Washington will be making the talk show rounds soon, though according to T.V. Guide, it’s possible he won’t have any project to promote.

    It still surprises the shit out of me that Hollywood still hasn’t gotten over this. And what pisses me off more is that a black man would pull this crap. What the hell was he thinking he was trying to prove. Ok, ok…I’ll calm down.
    Ellen is THE perfect person to help educate and put guests at ease with this issue.
    Great post babe.
