I am outraged! I can't believe that Grey's fired my favorite actor. So what if he called Knight exactly what he is. With all the flack over gay pride, I'm sure that is not the first time he has been called that. People have a right to say what they feel unless it is morally demeaning. I will not be watching this show again because this is so unfair. Isaiah was put through the hoops-making a formal apology; doing a public service announcement-and that still was not enough to save his job. Anyway, he is a far superior actor than T. R. Knight.

While I don't agree that what he did was right, I hate seeing him gone from the show. I do think that he should have been told then and not "strung along" until now. And I have read things that seem to imply that T.R. Knight won't be back, either. This is just another example of how 'political correctness' sometimes gets carried way over board. Sometimes people can be way too thin skinned and make even more out of things than needs to be. I'm not saying that it's ok to call gay people f**s. I know several gay people who I count among my best friends. But we can't be like kindergarten kids and run to the teacher and say "He called me a name!!" Get over it and deal with it between the two of you. You are supposed to be professionals. Keep the personal stuff out of it. Or, just act like grownups! The whole situation just drives me crazy. Ok, think I've ranted enough. I hope I got my intended point across and not offended anyone. To sum it all up...I want both Burke and George to be at Seattle Grace next season! But, I know I can't always get my way,lol.

I have heard mixed things about T.R. Knight returning. Originally, I heard Burke would be back (which we now know is untrue) and George would not. When the story broke about Isaiah Washington ot having his contract re-signed, I heard T.R. Knight got a raise in his contract and that he would be returning. I will wait until there is "official" news I guess.

Yes there is freedom of speech. But no where in the 1st ammendment does it say freedom from reprocussions. You can say whatever you want, but be prepared to pay for it if people don't like it. When ever anyone says anything, they have to realize that not everyone will agree. Especially on something so controversial as this. It's like what happened to the Dixie Chicks. They had a right to say what they did against the president, but they also had to take the back lash from other people who have the same right to say what they want to say. Don't do the crime if you can't pay the time.

I thought it did seem that they could have been straight forward with him about not being resigned. If they knew they did not want him they should not have been hanging him on. I am going to miss his character and Christina. I think that he is a better actor then Knight. I would rather have seen him go instead. I don't condone what he said though. I think it was in poor taste.

Calling him that is morally demeaning. He has a right to his opinion and a right to be against T.R. being gay, but he does not have a right to call him names like that. He did seem to try to apologize, but if it was anything like blurting out at the awards that he didn't call t.r. a "f" then he didn't really seem too sincere. I'm sorry that they fired him though, I liked his character and was hoping to see him and christina get back together.
