SOURCES SAY HOUSTONIAN AND GREY’S ANATOMY STAR ISAIAH WASHINGTON HAD A "PATTERN OF BEHAVIOR"!

HE JUST GOT CAUGHT UP DESPITE HIS APOLOGY!

Looks like it was more than just an anti-gay slur that led to Isaiah Washington’s getting the boot from “Grey’s Anatomy.” Some of the people close to the process that led to Washington’s firing from the hit A-B-C show are starting to wag their tongues a little — off the record, of course. And some are saying there were other factors that led to the ouster. One source close to the production says Washington had a “pattern of behavior” that was taken into consideration — and that the alleged pattern was too risky for the Walt Disney-owned companies involved in the network and its decision making. In addition, recent issues of abusive speech from people like Don Imus and Michael Richards had upped the ante when it came to how comments were tolerated by the public. What’s more, the head of a gay rights
group says Washington got caught up in the changing attitudes toward anti-gay speech. As part of the effort to save his job, Washington recorded a public service announcement for the Gay &
Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
