Will Dr. Burke Get Kicked off Grey's?

Will Dr. Burke Get Kicked off Grey's?

Last week we heard the real reason behind the fight on the set of Grey's Anatomy between Patrick Dempsey and Isaiah Washington. Apparently Isaiah yelled a very hateful statement at one of the other cast members. He said, “I’m not your little faggot like (name deleted).” And today T.R. Knight has confirmed he is gay, which basically confirms the fight was about sweet George. T.R. said,


"I guess there have been a few questions about my sexuality, and I'd like to quiet any unnecessary rumors that may be out there. While I prefer to keep my personal life private, I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me."

So, now the buzz is Isaiah may be kicked off the show. It kinda makes sense... he is after all unable to perform surgeries. What do you think? Will Dr. Burke be written off the show?

Yeah, Edwina, I meant you, hon. "Witch hunt"? "Burn 'em at the stake mentality"? Please. Your whole posts smells like self righteousness. No one is going around firing Isiah Washington, just commenting on whether or not he indeed said such a thing.

That's totally a surprise there! T.R. getting into the spotlight now! I thought it was just the McDreamy and Burke deal here. o.O I still love George ;) He's a cutie on the show.

i'm in atlanta and some dj on the radio said that the producers actually DID decide to recast Isiah Washington for his comments. i was like, ok, i thought this was just speculation on blogs?! so i am so thoroughly confused now. i've been trying to find something to back up what this dj said, but i can't. who knows. i think t.r.'s awesome though.

That Isaiah guy or whatever sounds like an arrogant diva. Hello, he ASSAULTED someone onset and then called someone else a slur. Keep him on the show and he'll pull an OJ on someone. What a beast!

Oh, when it first came out I thought that Isaiah said "I'm not your b*tch like .......", so who really knows what was said? Anyone? Anyone? I'm asking...does anyone know what was really said?

I didn't have any idea about TJ (George) either. I love his character and given the choice, would keep him over Burke any day. My guess is that most shows have spats between cast members but what Isaiah "allegedly" said is downright mean and reeks of homophobia. In the end the producers will need to determine if the cast can continue w/the awesome chemistry, given this incident. I always say that if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. And given Burke's "injury" and likeliness that he won't operate again, dump him!

I honestly believe this "quote" is made up. No where in the original reports of the fight so they say anything about him calling anyone that name. And as soon as he comes out the nature of the fight changes

Ok that's not a nice thing to say but he is homosexual so it's not like he was making it up. I don't think he said it for no reason something must have really pissed him off to have such a reaction, so he was probably disrespected in some way too.They're making a huge deal out of this, they need to leave Isaiah alone, I like him!

bluesuze, I was just going to say the same thing! I don't even watch this show, but of course I've been hearing all of these stories like anyone else. First of all, if these men were working a regular 9-5 office job, Isaiah and Patrick would both be fired in an instant. There is zero tolerance for that kind of behaviour in a normal workplace, why should Hollywood be any different? Furthermore, since when has it been acceptable to call someone the f word? Judging someone based on their sexuality is ridiculous. As ridiculous as religion based ignorance and racism. Even still, guaranteed that if TR dropped the N bomb, the sh!t would hit the fan. I hate ignorance, and I also hate double standards.

I don't understand WHY this issue even had to come out. Show me a place of work where people DON'T have tiffs now & then.

Padraigin, who in particular are you addressing? Up to your post, I don't see where anyone has said they didn't like speculation, or being here. If by chance you're commenting on *my* opinion to maybe wait until more proof is offered before deciding before the rush to judgment, I'm sorry you feel that way. There's speculating, and then there's lowering the hammer on someone based on unconfirmed info. I'd like to think someone would give me the benefit of the doubt under the same circumstances.

Ok, let's think about this a minute. If roles were reversed, and TR called Isaiah the N-word, you'd better belive they'd fire TR in a heartbeat! Spreading hate should not be tolerated!

Pad, I think Popsugar needs to make that as the headline of the whole website.

Awww Georgie!!! I'm not big on Burke. I like Christina but Burke annoys me. So I wouldn't really care if he left. Maybe it'd make Christina more emotionally open and such. *shrug*

If thats what was said then shame on him...i LOVE Greys and i am really not that big of a fan of his character so if he goes to better the lives of the rest of the cast that i ADORE then more power to giving him the boot.. ~*~Life was Simpler back then~*~
