Grey's Anatomy > Isaiah Washington Will Not Be Returning to Grey's Anatomy > Comments Page 3
Yes we do, we have the right to blame ABC and Shonda Rhimes for leading us to believe that he would be back. They haven't made things better, things will get worst.
Sorry DixieGirl, i was just utterly shocked to read any post and went straight to writing a comment. But i read it now, and i guess if IW really is more of a 'liability' because of his 'history of disruptive behaviour' and that it would actually jeapordise GA's success, termination is the only solution. But i still think the puzzel is not complete with IW off the picture.
The entire cast was willing to move on after the first incident the only one who couldn't let it go was IW. When the reporter asked about the fight at the Golden Globes TR responed by saying "What fight?" IW however took over the mic and then repeated and lied about his offence. Some people can choose to live in their dream world if you want. But the truth is IW brought this on himself. Neither him or his fans have the right to blame anyone else for his mistakes. Many actors who has worked with him in the past has talked about his bad behavior. There is no way the gay slur was his first or last incident witht he Grey's cast.
I'll miss Burke's relationship with Cristina but other than that I say good riddance.
Ssuzanne, both Isaiah and Patrick Dempsey said the whole choke rumor was not true. Both said they got in each other's faces, but that it was all words and over in minutes.
Amanda, if I had a nickle for every tiime that argument has been used since October I would be able to retire. If you are not Black, you have no idea how often the N word is used without any reprecussions at all. It is only a word. Either word. It does not define the person. I hope TR gets over his shame at being gay so that a word, any word, will not have such a negative impact on him that he will feel the compelling need to destroy another man's career over it.
Hafsa, Shonda may make it work for some of the fans without Isaiah, but I will not be among them. This is the worst case of over reacting and media hype in the history of Hollywood. This all smacks of interest groups that control public opinion and personally, I would like to make up my own mind rather than having it force fed to me. Ted Cas
I'm a huge Grey's fan, possibly one of the biggest and I thought it was completely wrong, obviously, of Isaiah Washington to use a gay slur against T.R. Knight, but if someone's gotta go in addition to Kate Walsh (who by the way I think should stay), I'd rather it be Burke than Georgie. Seattle Grace will definately not be the same without Preston, but if George was to leave, there would be a meltdown. I think though Washington is a great actor and plays Burke better than anyone else could, T.R. deserves to stay more. He's Georgie! And using a gay slur against Knight was a complete mistake. Sorry, Isaiah, you're great on Grey's, but you make a big mistake, you pay for it.
Reading the comments here is so sad, heartbreaking...our Burke is gone....
You people keeping saying that if PD were to say the n-word him would have immediately been fired. Will you please, please stop lying. We all know that PD would not have been fired. He would have been given as many changes as needed to make amends. I am so hoping that the main ones that were so judgemental will slip up, and we know that she will. And I know I speaking out of anger, but I'm not apologizing, I've learned that it doesn't help.
I hope he sues the hell out of the them! I'm so over this show. I wish them nothing but the worst.
Notice how nobody cares that T.R Knight is coming back...they're all too busy talking about how outrageous it is that Isaiah Washington won't be back.
I agree! George's part was ehhh, okay. But Burke...Burke was an amazing character. I definetely will miss him. He was my favorite! I'm not sure about S4 yet. I might watch just to see Cristina's character. I love her character. We'll see.
if preston burke isn't returning, i honestly have no reason to watch the show. he was the reason i paid attention. and, on another note, there aren't too many television shows that show a strong black male in that position (more especially in a position i see myself being in some time in the future. the chief is great, but burke was the best)...and with burke leaving, i am back to the drawing board. bottom line: without burke, there is no reason for me to watch the show...
Burke's character is the reason so many people watched the show. Besides the fact that he had the best relationship on the whole show, he had the best personality. He was calm, cool, & collected. He also was good looking & just an all-around great actor. Why would ABC fire him when so many people watch the show for him & Cristina's relationship. I don't understand...
Really, really upset.
Not really suprised in IW leaving Grey's.
I really liked his Burke character, I will miss him. But, we really don't know him as Isiah Washington, do we? We know him as who we see every week on TV. Of course we are mourning Burke, not Isiah, right? I wish IW all the luck in the world with his career, but I want Burke back!! Grey's will not be the same. They will have a hard time replacing him as he was one of the original characters. What do you think??
People are looking at it from one of two perspectives: from the Preston Burke side, and from the Isaiah Washington side. Yeah, it's going to be weird to not see Burke roaming the halls, that cool element gone. But it's the Isaiah Washington side that should be getting more attention; yes, he called T.R. a faggot. It was wrong - even though there are plenty of people being called niggas and niggers; it's rampant as well, but it doesn't get a deal of attention because Blacks aren't the media martyrs that the GLBT community are right now. Example: Imus derides the Rutgers basketball team, as "nappy headed hos". Yeah, people initially were in shock, but it quickly wore off after he "apologized " while they were on Oprah. But IW calls him a faggot and the world is in an uproar. Yes, he said it twice. But afterwards, there was genuine remorse. If there wasn't, he wouldn't have went through all that trouble of doing PSAs and the like; but people still want to keep the spotlight on that like i
I am a Grey's Anatomy die hard fan, however, the last two eposides were a total disappointment!!!! I'm already expecting the same for the next season. If IW is being fired for just calling someone a name, please let me in on who does not make a mistake. Burke, Cristina and the Nazi make the show! Addison should stay on Grey's Anatomy because the spin-off was lame. Meredith and McDreamy's romance resembles something out of high school. I hate to say it but I think season 4 will be yhe end of GA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think its bullshit that IW will not be returning. Please do not get me wrong I love T.R and I think that IW said was horrible, but i mean each character makes greys anatomy what is it. I don't think they show is going to be the same without him. dumb move
Hi everyone :/
I´m a huge Grey´s Anatomy fan :) ... and I´m from Germany ... I can tell you that this show is as huge in Germany as in America :) ... which is definately a good thing especially for all the fans overseas ....
but ... the whole thing with Isiah is depressing and shocking for us too ... I have no idea what Isiah thought when he acted totaly crazy :( ... I´m so disappointed I hardly have no words which can describe what I´m feeling and thinking :( ...
anyway I really hope that the GA cast will forgive him even without Isiah coming back to the show ... I hope that he has learned his lesson and continous to bahve better in the future ... whoever he is working with :/ ...
and just for the record :) ... I hope that Shonda will do anything wich is possible to keep the show and most of all the charachters as exciting, lovely and various as as in the first and second season :) .. the third one is a good one but there still is room for more ...
kisses your Ger
ok so p.s.s.s.s. even though id like to see a hot actor..as hot as tim daly from private practice...be the new attending...it would be easy to fit dr. erica hahn into the plot...BUT she would conflict with bailey cuz they kinda have the same bossy personalities
...so in real life im glad IW was fired cuz he an ass**** but for the show im sad about no more burktina
p.s. i really hope that burke gone doesnt mean marlow is back cuz i dont like that english creeper. and p.s.s. everyones comments are invovling the deal with T.R. but apparently thats not the only reason he was let go.
p.s.s.s. who would you guys like to see be the new attending in burke's place?
addison then burke? what the hell is this world coming to? and on top of it alll next season we have to start out with mer/der being broken up and george not at the hospital. im still gonna watch cuz im loyal. but jeeze shonda what are you thinking?
I've read through a few comments, and i'm just wondering why people think replacing one black actor with another one is right? i think even shondra made a point about that when this whole drama happen that she thinks its childish to believe that.
I love the show with or without IW, although maybe they will replace him or they will bring a new doctor. who do you recommend...???
I know people are going to say that this isn't true, but no one can convince me otherwise. If things had been reversed, and T.R. called Isaiah the N word, ABC would've swept the entire thing under the rug as quickly as possible. And it makes me even angrier to see that very few cast members came to his defense. People make humiliating mistake all the time, aka Paris Hilton, but I've noticed how easily they get off and its all forgotten. So why couldn't this? African Americans have been and still are stereotyped, beliittled, and put down for hundreds of years. Gay/Lesbians have only been put through, what? 30-40 years of the same thing? And I'm not saying that makes it right in anyway, but let's get real.
Wow. It's amazing how many people want to defend IW for making such a crass homophobic slur. I don't care how much you love your TV show -- wake up. This kind of hatred hurts real people. I care a lot more about the real-life feelings of T.R. Knight than I do about the feelings of a fictional character.
There's no room for hate in our society, whether you're an actor, a radio personality, or a regular work-a-day Joe. I don't care who you are, if you can't treat your fellow humans with respect -- rather than prejudice -- you don't deserve our support.
