So sure that the quote was contextual and willing to give the benefit of the doubt, we stayed quiet about the Isaiah Washington ruckus. But in his desperate attempts to clarify, the Grey's Anatomy ex-actor just can't stop stepping in it. Which is surprising, considering all his back-pedaling.
According to today's post in Think Fashion, in an interview with human Pez-dispenser Larry King (thank you Rosie O'Donnell), Washington tries to soften the sting of the dreaded word with the rationale that his vemon was directed at co-star Patrick Dempsey in the heat of an argument, quoth:
"There's no way you're going to treat me like the B-word, the P- word, or the F-word".
According to TF: "Isaiah went on to defend his actions by claiming that the 'F-word' was taken out of context and wasn't meant as an anti-gay slur but implied somebody who is being weak.'"
Oh, we see. That makes it soooooo much better.
"Washington blatantly told Larry King 'I am not homophobic – in no way, shape or form'."
Noooooooo, not at all. You're just a C-word and a D-word, I-word. So, kiss my A-word.
