Grey's controversy continues

T.R. Knight told Ellen Degeneres that he was forced out of the closet when his Grey's Anatomy co-star Isaiah Washington called him a faggot on set. "It's an awesome word, isn't it?" Knight said sarcastically. "I've never been called that to my face. So I think when it happened, something shifted, and it became bigger than myself." The controversy over Washington's on-set scuffle with Patrick Dempsey reappeared when Washington - unprompted - announced to the press at the Golden Globes, "No, I did not call T.R. a faggot. Never happened, never happened." Knight looked visibly angered when the comment was made on Monday night, and told Degeneres, "I don't know what to say, really, about that... He referred to me as a faggot. Everyone heard it." Fellow Grey's star Katherine Heigl, a close friend of Knight's, has also entered the debate, telling Access Hollywood, "I going to be really honest right now, he needs to just not speak in public. Period. I'm sorry, that did not need to be said. I'm not okay with it."

Personally, I am glad that T.R. used the Ellen show as a forum to clear the air, and confirm that he was called a faggot by Washington.

I like T.R. and like his co-star, Katherine, would like to punch Washington's lights out.

Thanks for sharing.
