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."
