Washington fired from 'Grey's Anatomy'

Tbdisaiah061107_2 While Paris Hilton is not getting what we’d call justice, Isaiah Washington is getting what he deserves. The AP reports the actor has been canned from Grey’s Anatomy, five months after calling co-star T.R. Knight a “faggot” and fighting with Patrick Dempsey over said remark.

Dr. Preston Burke’s contract was not renewed by ABC, prompting Washington to release a terse statement declaring “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

It’s a good thing Grey’s creators wrote him out of the show after Cristina’s derailed wedding, huh? Knight will be back, though: He finalized a $125,000 per episode deal earlier this week.

That's too bad, because we liked Dr. Burke.
