John Mayer Chimes In On The ‘Faggot’ Issue

John Mayer
By now you’ve probably heard of the incredible tension and controversy on the set of TV’s hit series “Grey’s Anatomy”, involving a particularly unsavory homosexual slur allegedly made to a fellow castmate by actor Isaiah Washington. Gay and lesbian groups are outraged, calling for Mr. Washington’s immediate termination from the show.
Now, far be it from me to chime in on other people’s business, but just like the man standing in line for a movie overhears a stranger behind him whom he knows has confused the finer points of the film “Throw Mama From The Train” with those of “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!”, sometimes you have to turn around and butt into a situation that doesn’t concern you in order to offer a little bit of assistance.
ABC may fire Mr. Washington, and it seems as if the pressure to do so is mounting by the day. They may also choose to placate all parties involved with some well-constructed press releases and the soothing touch of time, but in my mind, neither outcome succeeds in making any strides in promoting the tenets of tolerance and understanding.
I would like to offer my suggestion for a solution; produce an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in which Mr. Washington’s character, Dr. Burke comes out to his friends and colleagues as a gay man!!! What better way for an actor to get to the roots of his discrimination than by portraying the very the subject of his own ire for the remainder of his contract? That’ll learn ya!
