Rumor: T.R. Knight May Leave Grey's Anatomy
Will Grey's Anatomy soon be George-less? MSNBC.com's The Scoop reports that a source says T.R. Knight is upset by how the network/show handled the aftermath of co-star Isaiah Washington's uses of a homophobic slur.
According to the source, Knight was asked to keep quiet about the initial incident, which happened on set. But then, Washington caused a furor by using the word again at the Golden Globes while trying to deny he'd ever used it in the first place.
Only after the Golden Globes backlash did ABC or Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes issue apologies. Washington has since gone into counseling. But according to The Scoop, it's not enough for Knight, who feels the show's atmosphere is "toxic and unhealthy."
It'd be a shame to see Knight driven out of the show, when he didn't do anything wrong. Plus, George O'Malley is an integral character; I really can't imagine Grey's Anatomy without him. Washington has already gotten a second chance and blew it. He should be fired.
Do you agree? Should Washington be canned?
