I’m sure by now, if you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve heard about the scandal on the set of Grey’s Anatomy. I don’t watch the show – probably because I’m too busy watching high class TV like Wife Swap, Beauty and the Geek, or I Love New York.
So, Isaiah Washington calls T.R. Knight a faggot on the set and bedlam ensues. It’s shitty and way not cool, but we all know ABC probably won’t end up doing anything. Sure, they’re pissed about the controversy, but run the risk of losing a main character on their award-winning show? Not likely.
Personally, I just decided I love John Mayer even more after reading his response on how to deal with the issue at hand:
I would like to offer my suggestion for a solution; produce an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in which Mr. Washington’s character, Dr. Burke comes out to his friends and colleagues as a gay man!!! What better way for an actor to get to the roots of his discrimination than by portraying the very the subject of his own ire for the remainder of his contract? That’ll learn ya!
