8 Shocking Off-Screen Scandals Of Grey’s Anatomy Cast

Isaiah Washington’s Homophobic Slur
Source: New York Daily News
Back in 2007 another one of the show’s biggest stars left the show after Isaiah Washington who portrayed Dr. Preston Burke used homophobic slurs twice in public. He first used the slur on set of Grey’s when he got in an argument with co-star T.R. Knight and called him a “f–ot,” which was bad enough but afterwards Knight came out as gay. Washington then used the slur again backstage at the Golden Globes when he was trying to defend himself, which caused heavy backlash and caused him to be fired from the show, and essentially destroyed his acting career.
