People have the right to defend themselves. ABC, other cast members and the crew that leaked the story have all had the opportunity to tell their side Imus, Richards and Gibson had the time to state their claim, all with varying degrees of credibility. All have had only minor career hits if any at all. Imus is suing CBS radio and undoubtedly getting his own show on satellite radio so he can continue spewing the homophobic, racist, sexist crap he's been putting out there for ages now to his still adoring audience. Richards is still doing the comedy circuit with a still adoring fan base and Seinfeld DVDs that were released shortly after the incident are still doing great. Though Gibson has lost a bit of respect due to his VERY long history of homophobia, racism and anti-semitism, his career didn't suffer at all. Apocalypto got rave reviews, Oscar nods and major sales. He has enjoyed a successful career in show biz in spite of this. What he said was stupid and inappropriate. The fact is that his white counterparts (McDreamy and McSteamy especially) on Grey's would not have gotten fired if they said the same thing he did.

It is disugusting that he used the "F" word to call someone "weak" that alone is a slap in the face to the Gay community. And by the way, the "P" word is plenty degrading to women as well. Anyway you cut it, he doesn't think those words are wrong, which is the problem to begin with. It doesn't matter who he directed them at, he used them at work, and thats inappropriate

I do not believe that any slur should be used or repeated. He is not a very credible person; however, I do believe that people sometimes say things unaware of the environment that it is said in and it results in someone being offended. Some words have lost their original connotations and are used casually-such as crazy. If someone were really crazy and they heard that word, they could suspect that it was aimed at them.

Basically it all boils down to he said, he said. I can understand him wanting to set the record straight IF what he is saying is actually true, but the damage has already been done, and he is no longer a part of the show. He is in essence, damaged goods at this point, and just needs to let bygones be bygones. The most validation he could hope for would be to star on another show/movie and not cause any fracas on the set. If he would just allow his acting ability to do the "talking" for him, this incident would recede in people's minds.

He used to just look like an arrogant, ignorant, self-centered actor but now he looks like a liar too. It's a shame because he's really, really talented. I think he has a history of being trouble, doesn't he? He needs to examine the careers of Debra Winger, William Hurt, Val Kilmer, etc. and realize that in Hollywood it's not a good idea to be an a**hole because there are people standing in line to take your place. Nobody likes difficult people who can't play well with others. And let's be honest, the gay community is very powerful in Hollywood ... he p*ssed off the wrong people.

Oh well. TR Knight didn't use a homophobic slur and attempt to choke anyone. So George stays and Burke goes.

I just want to say, I prefer Dr. Burke than George. Burktina was the next best thing to MerDer

well now that he's been fired, he's allowed to say whatever he wants, which is why he keeps telling everyone his side of the story.

I ove how TR Knight is being reviled by some of the people here. Nice. Let's just forget what Isaiah said and did (and it WAS confirmed by several people on the set) and he did it AGAIN at the Golden Globes, and blame it all on TR Knight. Good Lord.

His story seems to change everytime he opens his mouth. This guy is a total liar! He's gone from saying he was sorry for saying it to saying he never said it and now he is saying that he said it but didn't aim in at Knight. He is a compulsive liar!

Yah, I just wish he would have some pride and stop talking. He is digging himself into a deeper hole with each word. I thought he should have been fired at the time, especially when he repeated the "F" word on national TV, but I guess there were contract's to honor. I just hope this dosen't affect the show. Love Grey's!

Does he really think he is helping his image at all? He needs to move on. He will be lucky to find work with anyone if he keeps yapping.

His personality stinks, but Im really going to miss his character, Burke; he was such a classy fellow. :(

thing is he's trying to save his career same way mel gibson did after his outburst. He has to try and clear his name or else his career might be over. i can't blame him, he's a desperate man. ... Esp since he did everything his bosses asked him to - apologise, show remorse etc... but it seems like it didn't count for anything, they just wanted to keep him so that they would have a good season finale and then they cut him loose. ... that's hollywood for ya!
