An insider told the National Enquirer, "The melee has set off World War III on the show and may cost Isaiah his job. The cast is divided over the shameful event." The "shameful event" is Washington's use of the word "faggot" to refer to his gay cast mate, T.R. Knight, while in a physical fight with another co-star, Patrick Dempsey.According to thebosh.com, ABC has already met with various other actors as a possibility of replacing Washington.
Pity the show isn't as interesting as the stuff behind the scenes.
