Isaiah Washington has been axed from 'Grey's Anatomy' and and his spokesperson told TV Guide's Michael Ausiello:
"If they wanted to fire him, why didn't hey fire him when [the incident] happened? If you made a mistake, you acknowledged the mistake, you went into counseling, you met with the groups, you did the PSA, you did everything that was asked of you, and then they still kick you in the gut? How would you feel?"
I agree, why didn't they fire him when it happened instead of dragging it on forever and then deciding to give him the boot. I'm not sure if Grey's will be the same without Preston Burke.
