Isaiah Washington Describes His Career Fallout Following His 2007 "F*ggot" Remarks

Speaking with Huffpost Live, former Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington detailed the fallout his career suffered as a result of his use of an anti-gay slur on set in 2007. 

"I didn't have a choice. After the incident at the Golden Globes everything just fell apart. It literally stopped. Whatever the agenda, whatever the plan was it worked. I lost everything. I couldn't afford to have an agent. I couldn't afford to have a publicist for the crisis management to continue. I couldn't afford to continue. I went from 2 million dollars a year to residual checks. Zero. I couldn't get another apartment after I turned in my lease for my $3 million home. I had to put it in my wife's name. No one wanted to touch the name of Isaiah Washington for three years."

Poetic justice.

And, that's why you don't mess with the gays...
