Isaiah Washington In Need of Anger Management Classes... STAT!

Shhh. Don't tell anyone I'm a homophobe and an abuser!

I've preached my annoyance with the character of Preston Burke from Day 1. I don't find him believable; I find him to be the least fleshed out and most cliched Doctor of the bunch. Do I really care that he can't perform surgery any more? No. Do I care that he may have lost his identity? No. Do I wish they would have just let him bleed out and die last season when he was shot? Sure do!

I for one would not shed a single tear if Isaiah Washington/Burke were removed from the world of Seattle Grace. I'm also the guy that will never be picked for a jury because I tend to think Guilty Until Proven Innocent instead of the other way around. So what's the point of this rant? Well if the rumors are true, Mr. Washington is in need of some major anger management classes and just possibly some lessons in bigotry.

Y'all recall the incident on set a couple weeks ago where Washington and McDreamy almost came to blows right? Well at the time it seemed it was over tardiness on set and the brunt of his frustration was with recently outed star T.R. Knight. Later rumors have led to the fight between McDreamy and Washington being more about Washington using the term "faggot" in reference to T.R. and McDreamy McStanding up for him.

Now, TMZ is reporting two other incidents where Washington has lost his cool on set:

In the year 2000, Washington was shooting the TV show "Soul Food" for Showtime in Toronto. Washington and an actress, who played his wife, were shooting a scene in which Isaiah was supposed to give the woman a superficial kiss. We're told to the horror of everyone, Washington grabbed the woman and planted a "forceful, aggressive kiss."

The actress became irate, which then infuriated Washington who began screaming at her. At that point the director stepped in to correct Washington, and the actor went off on him. Executive Producer Tracey Edmonds then took over and Washington went off on her.

In 1997 there was yet another incident on the set of the TV show "High Incident." Washington was a guest star on the show, but we're told the gig ended abruptly after the actor had a physical altercation with a crew member. We're told it was serious enough that police were called.

As for the "Grey's Anatomy" melee, there are reports that Washington taunted Dempsey by saying, "I'm not your little faggot like [name redacted]," referring to a fellow cast member.
