BURBANK, Calif. -- BURBANK, Calif. (January 22, 2007) ? Brad Garrett is speaking out about the anti-gay remarks made by “Grey’s Anatomy” starIsaiah Washington.
Garrett, the star of FOX’s “‘Til Death” and the former “Everybody Loves Raymond” actor, spoke out over Washington’s recent use of a homophobic slur.
“Should he be fired? For saying that word? Isaiah’s got to come to my show. We open every table read with words like this. I don’t know what it is Isaiah. I think they got to put him on a WB show, bring him down a notch,” Garrett told Access at Saturday’s FOX TCA party.
When asked if he thought things have become too politically correct, Garrett said, “Everything has gotten incredibly ridiculously P.C. and that’s what it is. Look I’m a 7-foot Jew with a small penis. I’m not laying my stuff on people, you know what I mean? God has a sense of humor and everyone’s got to mellow out? they’re words, they’re words. You know what I’m saying? We can say them in our craft; we can’t say them in real life. Everyone has to just chill out.”Video: Isaiah’s Apology
