When Isaiah Washington responded to his release from “Grey’s Anatomy” by releasing the statement, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.” TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello sat down to an interview with Washington’s rep, Howard Bragman, who indicated that the actor is, in fact, angry.
“If they wanted to fire him,” Bragman asks, “why didn’t they fire him when [the incident] happened? Why did they say, ‘Here’s what you need to do if you want to come back… ‘ and then, when he did everything that was asked of him, he still gets fired. Why do you treat somebody like that?”
Bragman also said that Washington’s frustration stems from the fact he believes that he took all the necessary steps to rectify the situation, but was still let go and has not yet decided if he plans on taking legal action. I guess we should be happy that he’s releasing statements and not punching people. Yet.
