I will miss Burke and I think Isaiah Washington is a fine actor- however, I think people have to understand that his interview was obviously self-serving. I bet if he hadn't done what he did at the Golden Globes (grabbing the mike from Shonda and using the word "faggot" in front of a room full of reporters) he probably would still have a job, IN SPITE of the dust-up with PD and using the word in whatever the original context was. ABC was playing it cool, TR Knight was playing it cool (he didn't talk about the incident until AFTER the Golden Globes.) The person who started it up again was IW.

I'm sad to see Burke go, I'm sure Shonda and ABC are sad to see the character go but I understand why they did it.

First, people are saying over and over that his story doesn't match what was said in other interviews, but it does in fact match what KH said on the Ellen show (before TR went there), so I do believe this story.

Second, I don't think that using "the word" when not directed at anyone or just to deny having used it is bad... It's an hypocrisy to say "ohh, the F word" when everyone knows what the means, it's implied, and it's socially acceptable.

But he apologized. He did the damn meetings, he blamed himself and only mentioned others to explain the reasons he might have snapped off. I know gay people that weren't either insulted or in any way affected with what was said... Everyone said that the media blew this thing out of proportion. And even Larry King, who usually won't let people get away with anything, believed him.

It's obvious he won't come back to the show, and I think it is a pity. It was a great character. But for some reason lead actors are rarely black in big series, so being a "liberal story" where everyone's life is given the same degree of attention, it must have made too many people angry.

He's telling what happened, and as E! reported he didn't say she was late, only that PD wanted to wait for her, that didn't been she was late. Is was about PD constant tardiness.

McYummyMyTummy you should look on youtube and type in "Larry King" or "Isaiah Washington" and you should be able to find it.

Hope that helps.

Maybe my question was overshadowed by anger and dispute, but I am still wondering if there's a place on the internet where I can view the interview??????????
