Do you think "Dr. Burke" should be fired?

Due to Isaiah Washingtons offensive remarks, many speculate that he will be kicked off Grey's Anatomy. Some are even boycotting abc advertisers until he is fired. Do you think Isaiah Washington should be fired?

NOPE Why because although it was a ver very horrible thing that he said. It is an incident that he said not the character he plays and to be honest I think by ripping him from the show they would lose some viewers so it would never happen. I would be very very disappointed if he was gone I want to know if his hand shakes if he feels better and if he and Christina can be happy together. Yes you can be mad at him and yes he can be brought to task on what he said by the creator and producers and the executives. But they won't dump him he is as much a part of the anatomy as meredith or derek. Dana

I know I'd be disapointed if his character wasn't on the show!

I agree- I realy don't want to see his character leave the show, there will be too much left undone and so many more avenues to explore with him and the other characters.

exactly, it'd be a huge loss. i personally doubt he's going anywhere though, so I'm not terribly concerned.

I don't think firing him would be the right thing to do. He did apologize and I think it was a sincere apology. That's good enough for me!

i dont think fifirng him is the best way to deal with the situation. maybe a public apology for what he did is better than firing him.

No, I don't think that he should be fired. He made a mistake; everyone makes mistakes at one point or another and he has apologized publicly for making those remarks. What he said could have been taken out of context, and while it wasn't flattering to him or his career, he seems truly apologetic about it now and that's what matters.

No, I think firing him would be taking it way too far. I agree that what he did was wrong, but I think there has to be a better way to make things right. The whole situation should have stopped with him and TR Knight and it never would have been as big of a deal.

He already apologized so let's give him a chance to renew his thoughts. Let us just hope though that the incident would not be repeated since such disrespect to a fellow is unacceptable.

I don't think he should be fired, everyone makes mistakes. I think it was wrong that he lied about it at the award show. He has now apologized. I think there's got to be another way of dealing with it rather than firing him.

Sorry but I don't think this was reported over here in Australia..... What remarks did he make?? And I think that no one should lose their job if they make a mistake (unless it is a mistake at their job)... if that makes sense??? I would hate to see him leave!!!!! Cheers Till
