On-Set Slurs

In 2007, former Grey’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington’s use of a derogatory slur for homosexuals on set, allegedly against co-star T.R. Knight, eventually led to his being fired from the popular show, and caused the ire of GLAAD, who called Washington’s remarks “inexcusable.” Washington met with the group, issued a public apology and attended counseling. He also filmed a PSA for GLAAD that preached the importance of tolerance. (Photo: Gregg DeGuire/PictureGroup)
