Grey's Anatomy > T.R. Knight Confirms Slur Was Made, Resulted in His Coming Out > Comments Page 3
Like i said earlier, I totally support TR and the way hes handling this, but i also think its unfair for people to think IW is anti-gay. Like Katherine Heigl said, he might not've meant it that way. I think he just handled the situation completely inappropriately. He went about it in completely the wrong way. He might've thought it was funny or to the point, but again, just the completely wrong time, place, and way to express his side to things. I don't think he hates TR or whatever...i just think he's really diggin himself a whole, and should just come out and apologize, for the sake of the show and his supposed "family." I don't think he should be fired for his comment. If the entire cast has problems with him though, and can't continue to work with him, they might have to let him go...cause even though the character will be missed, the show must go on with a good vibe and a lot of that comes from the actors. I really respect TR for handling things this way, and hopefully this kind
I hear that last time when they said he needed to apology, which he did to the parties involved. Did the media and others let up, no they didn't. If he feels he should apologize, it should still be to the parties involved.
mj- the thing is that what IW said to the reporter at the GG was not the truth per TR
I just watched the Ellen show and you all should really watch the clip. I am sure it will be on greys-media.com and youtube soon. TR was having a hard time talking about it....but he did say that he was not late and he was present when the comment was made by IW to PD. And he doesn't know why IW denied that he said it....he doesn't understand.....all I can say is you have to watch the show to understand what i am saying....i am just saying IW should not have denied saying it he did....i would respect him much more if he admitted it and said sorry....but he is a coward for not admitting it.......we all make mistakes and we should own up to them
I think i believe TR. I mean, why would you lie about this? I watched his interview on Ellen, and i felt it was a very honest, and somewhat touching conversation. He didn't walk onto the set angry and upset, infact, he cracked some jokes completely irrelevant to the fight before ellen asked, and once she did he really kept things under control. I don't think he wanted to draw attention, infact, he basically outright said it when he first came out. I don't think he would lie about something like this - nobody wants attention for this kind of story. Like Ausiello said, he handled it with class. Both October, and now, he could've thrashed out against IW if he wanted to. He could've really vocalized the hurt and anger he felt, because im sure the media wanted to hear it. Even on Ellen, other than his accusation that IW lied he really didn't say much against IW. I think he's handling this really well and maturely. That must've been a horrible moment for everybody. I can only hope that now,
i honestly wish we could all be blissfully ignorant about this whole situation. no matter what's been said the whole truth usually lies somewhere in between. they need to just stop answering questions about it -- don't address it ever again in any way. only then will the press stop hounding them about it.
Now their both hurt and upset. They need to find a way to work it out. You don't have to like your co-worker(s) to work with them, just be professional at work. They need to focus on the show, and end this childishness, and outsiders need to stop instigating and let them work things out. So many fans would be disappointed if anyone left.
No, the messages in the show is that people are flawed, and when they make a mistake they try to correct the problem. I honestly feel that IW felt my telling that one reporter if would stop others from asking the same similar questions, that was his intentions. KH knew that what he was trying to do. Like he said, enough is enough.
from someone who claims to be in the press room:
Question: Hey, Michael, were you in the press room when Isaiah Washington hijacked the microphone and said, "I did not call T.R. Knight a f----t!" And, if so, care to give us the scoop?â€" Genie
Ausiello: I certainly was there, and I have the internal scars to prove it. It was by far the ugliest, most uncomfortable press-room moment I have ever experienced. And judging by the shell-shocked faces on the cast â€" particularly T.R. Knight and Patrick Dempsey, who have been class acts throughout this entire ordeal â€" it was a new low for them, too. And what's ironic about the whole thing is that in Washington's attempt to clear his name, he came off as an out-of-control homophobe who throws the f-word around like it's candy. (He's also playing fast and loose with the truth. Did he call T.R. a f----t to his face? No. Did he refer to him as one behind his back? Yes. T.R. says so himself on today's Ellen DeGeneres Show.) His continued em
i meant to say does not mean she can not relate in some way. sorry
I agree that we all make mistakes and say things in anger or stressful situations that we don't mean..If I understand correctly from this article IW did call TR a faggot and he is now denying it to the media.
it was not the right place to say what he did at the golden globes....i got past him making the comment a long time ago and took his apolgy as heartfelt. Now i am disappointed that he denied the comment in the wrong place....
let me just add that this will not stop me from watching the show...i might not like IW comments or his personality but it has no bearing on his character in the show.
also everyone needs to learn that you can say how you feel without doing like cmeroar. making comments like that makes you no better that someone who uses the n word. and just because viki is a white female does not been she can not relate in some way.. i am a white female with a mixed child and i feel her pain even if i am not mixed like her.....you know nothing of vicki's life and your
It doesn't matter that TR is saying thiis now, which I don't know if I believe him. Even before this interview, people believe that IW had said the slur anyways. I honestly don't feel that IW was trying to hurt him, he was defending himself. First, TR wasn't in the room and didn't hear it, now he was coming around the corner and hear it. At this point, it a matter of he said, he said. They need to work this out and move on, and focus on the show. Let TR and IW work it out. The problem is that everyone is trying to get into it: KH, media, etc. I can't believe that TR is upset because he told the reporter he didn't say it. He was trying to make it understood that he didn't say it, so that the others [reporter] would leave it at that. IW apologize to all parties involved for whatever happened. And, Cemroar it's people like you that make it hard for others. I truly believe that IW is not a racist. Let them work it out so we can continue to have our Greys. The show is what is i
How did this whole thing start? What exactly prompted IW to call T.R. a faggot? In one of the magazine interviews with PD it was explained a little but I find it all to be very confusing. Could someone straighten me out? And I just want everyone to be friends again....
All of you are a bunch of Sissy's. HE IS A FAG!!!!!
He is a male that has relations with other men!! In short... A FAG!!!
Viki,get over yourself! You don't know how it feels to be black or gay! So you have no clue if both words carry the same hurtful feelings or not! I hate hearing ignorant people, such as yourself,say dumb things...Anyway, It was an argument between two adult males. If the "sweeter" of the two's feelings got ruptured then, oh well! "Stay out of a man's face, if you don't wanna get hurt", I always say!!
Oh by the way TR Knight is a "fag" by his own admission!!!
I am very disapointed in mr. washington for using that word. As an african-american he should know better than to use that word. Using the f word is like using the n word.
Patrick and T.R always took the high road when the question about the fight was asked. In fact T.R and Patrick sort of covered for mr. Washington by not going into great detail about the fight. But after lying in front of everyone about that word, I don't blame T.R for finally telling the truth about why he came out.
By shouting it out in the manner that he did, he ruined that special night(golden globes) not only for Shonda but for the cast as well. He just added more fuel to the fire and it will be hard for me to look at him in the same way that I had use to. I have lost respect for him. I know people make mistakes and everything but you just can't use that word. How would he like it if Patrick or T.R had shouted the N word in the same manner that he shouted the F word? All hell would break loose and Patrick
Now Mr. Wahington adds insult to injury, lying on top of uttering racist remarks? Way to go !!!
I really wish that Isaiah hadn't handled the GG situation the way he did. I get that he was sick of everybody asking him. I get it - i've been sick of everybody asking him. He has the right to be frustrated, but why, why did he have to leap across from the other side of the room to interrupt Shonda and use the word that he was accused of saying in the first place? Why? It was over - done! Sure, he's gonna get asked about it, but the cast reached a level of peace and understanding. I saw the interview with access hollywood after Katherine's statement, and if he had just waited to make his own peace, and handle it in that fashion, then that would've been fine. Now he pretty much welcomed it back into the press after winning an award infront of the entire cast including TR - they should've been happy but now...now TRs doing this interview and boom, its back. I really respect TR and i respected IW back when he released his apologies, but now i don't know what to believe. All i know is, i r
In his own way, I think IW was trying to kill the questions about the incident, hoping by saying that no one else would ask anymore questions about it. Because I agree, enough is enought! Even KH said something about him not meaning it the way it came out. I think if people would have taken the time to calm down and think about it, it wouldn't have been such a big issue.
It's so sad..i wonder...'why can't everyone just get along?'. Its true - this could have been a dead issue if IW didnt say that word again at the GG. Aggrivated or not, he could have used a better word. Calling someone who is gay the 'f' word is like calling someone who is black the 'n' word. I am a straight white female and i have to say - both of those words are just harsh - raw - and completely wrong - ESPECIALLY amongst reports. I do not see any justificaton of using either of them. So maybe IW needs to think of it that way. But i really do wish this situation would just go away.
