"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 crisis management to continue... I could not afford to continue. I went from 2 million dollars a year to residual checks. Zero. I couldn't even 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."
-- Former Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington, who used the homophobic slur "faggot" to describe a gay castmate in 2006 and 2007, asking you to feel sorry for him because his career imploded for several years afterwards.
Note to Washington: how about you sit down with a homeless kid whose parents kicked them out of the house because they're LGBT (or a "faggot," as you'd say)? Then you'll see what losing everything really looks like.
