Much like his Grey’s Anatomy character Dr. Burke, Isaiah Washington is in hot water. At the Golden Globe Awards on January 15, Isaiah, 43, denied that he called cast mate T.R. Knight a faggot last October. ‘No, I did not call T.R. a faggot. Never happened, never happened,’ he told reporters. Now the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a gay and lesbian alliance group, is demanding the actor apologize for his use of anti-gay slurs. GLAAD president Neil Giuliano contacted Isaiah’s reps to discuss ‘the destructive impact of these kinds of anti-gay slurs,’ but he has not responded. Following the Golden Globes, T.R.,33, who announced he is gay after last year’s incident, told Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, that Isaiah indeed called him a faggot.
