To Burke supporters,

Stop trying to defend the undefendable. What Mr. Washington did and said was wrong and now he's paying the price.
You're siding with an attacker and disrespecting the victim of his attacks. That's a no-no in my book!

To JB:
a homophobic or what. I am not gay but i take offense to your idiot remarks. For someone on the number 1 show on television to call another human being a faggot, is not only irresponsible but racist. Grey's did the right thing getting rid of him. I for one will continue to watch greys and will not miss Burke. It's time for the show to go back and feature more of patient stories like they did in season 1 and 2. Sometimes you have to put your brain in gear before engaging your mouth, which is what IW should have done. Think before you speak people.

Burke Backer like usual you expressed what I feel.
Who is really behind all this? It has been going on since October they never let go. Someone must really hate IW for acting like that. The media played a very bad role here they should have stopped right away. What pleasure can one have in trying to break someone's career that I will never understand.
Can KH and TRK still look at themselves in the mirror? Sure that somehow they will pay back for this one day. KH is mentionned in 61 headlines on this site EP only 41 that says enough about the woman.
Showbizz should be managed by competent people and their sexual orientation should not influence their decisions which obviously is not the case here. That's how you create hate towards a community. How can we obtain peace on earth when for simple things some people make a mountain from it. Just wished they had put their energy in something more positive.

It's unfortune that the Disney Corp is the parent company of ABC. They support the gay rights movement, as well as financial support. So I believe that they probably stong armed Shonda into making that decision. It doesn't make sense for the producers to fire him for somthing so silly and unimportant. So it has to be Disney. It wasn't a racial slur,religious , handicapped or anything like that. They ended that man's career for gay rights. They chose immorality as justice. I liked TR and Heigl, but not enough to continue watching the show. They wouldn't be able to hold my attention long enough without Burke there to balance their mediocore scenes.

I *SO* agree with Burke Backer.

1) He REFERRED to TR Knight as a faggot; he did not CALL him one to his face. TR Knight has no right to make a hooha out of it unless he steps up to confront Washington and set things straight. From what we know, TR Knight never did and instead went through the back door playing the hurt victim.

2) Right after the event happened, all who were interviewed said it was over in a flash; people apologized and they got on with work. The one who didn't get over it seems to be TR Knight alone. And the media.

Although I was taken aback at Washington's reaction during the Golden Globes, thinking that it was totally uncalled for, I think we're forgetting that the media has been giving him a hard time over the few months. Imagine a reference to your colleague in the office being blown up so much so that *everyone* starts asking you about it. Go through this public scrutiny for a few months and tell me you won't lose it and say NO I DIDN'T CALL HIM THAT, ENOUGH ALREADY!

And while I felt for TR Knight in the beginning, I don't anymore. His self-righteous and victimized behavior has gone on long enough over a term that high school kids throw at each other every single day. Like I said before, congratulations TR Knight and Heigl - you've driven away the colleague you couldn't get along with. Along with Washington's fans. And fans of Burke and Cristina. You popping the champagne yet?

Right now ABC is spreading rumors to justify their action. I wouldn't put too much stock into any of their statements at the moment.

I am done with Grey's! I need black eye candy!

I need a black ken!

It was bad enough that he did get a Mic name now they have fired him. And by the way his slur was not racial it was sexual----get it right!!!!
