Isaiah Washington Shonda Rhimes Agrees with Me ... Racism at ABC Got Me Booted off 'Grey's!!!'

3/21/2018 11:28 AM PDT

Isaiah Washington insists he was ousted from "Grey's Anatomy" in 2007 over false accusations fueled by an allegedly racist ABC exec ... and he says Shonda Rhimes knows it too, and has his back.

The actor tells us Shonda -- creator and exec producer of 'Grey's' -- has "nothing good to say" about ABC or its exec VP, Howard Davine. He also says Shonda believes Davine should be investigated for his "racist, biased behavior."

What Isaiah's suggesting is pretty explosive. First, that the stories about him making homophobic comments on the 'Grey's' set were lies to get him blackballed in Hollywood. Second, Shonda taking a stand against ABC, where she's the biggest content creator, says a lot.

Isaiah says a whistleblower tipped him off to Davine's alleged actions, and now he's hoping the #TimesUp movement or others get on board with his fight.

We've reached out to Shonda's office several times, but so far no word back.

Breaking News

The woman accusing Fred Savage of harassment and assault claims he targeted other women and it was widely known.

YoungJoo Hwang, a costume designer on the set of the TV show, "The Grinder," appeared at a news conference Wednesday morning flanked by her attorney, Anahita Sedaghatfar of the Cochran Firm and and went into more detail about the lawsuit against Savage for harassment, assault, battery and discrimination. 

Hwang -- who says she was inspired by the #MeToo movement -- claims Fred was aggressive towards her, cursed at her and was demeaning from the moment she started working on the show. She alleges she's not the only woman Savage targeted and was encouraged not to report the conduct "because a lot of people would lose their jobs."

Sedaghatfar claimed 20th Century Fox has, to this date, not conducted a full investigation into Hwang's claims and wouldn't say whether her client's filed a report with LAPD 

As we reported ... Savage says Hwang's accusations are without merit and absolutely untrue, and claims they were investigated but ... "None of her claims could be substantiated because they did not happen."

Fred Savage Lawsuit Allegedly Told Crew 'Don't F***ing Look at Me!'

3/21/2018 9:54 AM PDT

11:00 AM PT -- Savage says Hwang's accusations are without merit and absolutely untrue, and claims they were investigated, but ... "None of her claims could be substantiated because they did not happen."

Savage says he's worked in entertainment his whole life and has "always endeavored to treat everyone on any set I work on respectfully and professionally." He adds ... he supports all people who feel they are being mistreated to come forward and speak out, but he also must "protect myself and my family from those seeking to tarnish my good name."Fred Savage is getting sued for allegedly assaulting a costumer on his TV show "The Grinder" -- but she also claims he regularly tormented female crew members, demanding they don't make eye contact with him.

In the suit, filed Wednesday in L.A., Youngjoo Hwang says Savage constantly gave her dirty looks, rolled his eyes and hurled profanities at her while they were working on the show in 2015. Hwang says Savage made no secret of the fact he didn't like her, saying things like, "It's so f**king annoying that I have to be nice to you when I f**king hate you!"

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Savage had a rep for intimidating and tormenting female crew members, demanding they stop following him around -- even though it was their job to do so -- and told them, "Don't ever even f**king look at me anymore!"

TMZ broke the story ... Hwang claims Savage eventually blew up at her when she dusted dandruff off his tuxedo jacket, as part of her job. In the suit, she says he yelled, "Do not touch me with your hands" -- and when she explained what she was doing he "violently struck [her] arm three times with his hand."

Hwang says she reported this, but was told by an executive producer, "I'm not even sure what Fred did constituted harassment and I don't think you should report it to H.R."

She claims FOX protected its star, and did nothing to clean up the hostile work environment Savage created. As we told you, a source close to Fred says FOX actually did investigate Hwang's allegation and found zero evidence to back her story.

Hwang and her attorney, from the Cochran Firm, are planning a news conference at 11 AM PT, which we will live stream.

Austin Bomber Mark Conditt Railed on Homosexuality, Abortion

3/21/2018 7:37 AM PDT

Austin bomber Mark Conditt blogged that homosexuality is not natural and therefore gay marriage should be illegal.

It appears Conditt was a student in an online American government class in 2012 at Austin Community College, where he submitted several blogs in which he gave his opinions on a variety of issues.

As for gay marriage, Conditt wrote, "Homosexuality is not natural. Just look at the male and female bodies ... It would be like trying to fit two screws together and to nuts together and then say, 'see, it's natural for them to go together.'"

In addition to attacking homosexuality, he railed on the government providing women with free abortions, saying, "If you can't provide for a child, then don't have sex."

Conditt also talked about doing away with the sex offender registry, commenting "You have to really hate the guy to make him suffer for the rest of his life, even when his prison time is up."

He also blogged in support of the death penalty, saying, "Living criminals harm and murder again -- executed ones do not."

Austin Bomber Mark Conditt Contemplated 'Mission Trip'

3/21/2018 6:45 AM PDT
Breaking News

7:43 AM PT -- It is now being reported that Conditt used an "exotic" and foreign battery in his explosives which allowed authorities to link the bombings together. Crux Manufacturing touts on its website that it specializes in handling "exotic materials."

7:00 AM PT -- Conditt graduated from Austin Community College. There might be a clue as to how he developed expertise in bomb making. He reportedly worked as a computer repair tech and also as a "purchasing agent/buyer/shipping and receiving" at Crux Manufacturing in Austin. The company is involved in robotics, mechanical repair ... it builds a variety of metal products.

Austin bomber Mark Conditt was apparently homeschooled by his mom, who proudly announced on social media back in 2013 she graduated him from high school.

Conditt, who was 23 at the time of his death, seemed to be contemplating going on some sort of mission. His mom wrote, "He's thinking of taking some time to figure out what he wants to do ... maybe a mission trip."

His mom also posted a pic of Conditt snowboarding in 2013.

Police say Conditt is responsible for the string of bombings that left 2 dead. So far, authorities are in the dark as to motive. He died early Wednesday morning after police tracked him to his hotel. When authorities approached his vehicle, Conditt detonated a bomb and died. 

Donald Trump Jr. Aubrey O'Day's Topless Music Vid ... You Screwed Me Over!!!

3/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Aubrey O'Day wrote not one, but 2 songs about her alleged affair with Donald Trump Jr. -- and even made a steamy music vid for one of them, but it never saw the light of day ... until now.

TMZ's obtained previously unreleased footage of Aubrey's remake of Gotye's 2011 smash hit "Somebody That I Used to Know" ... in which she's topless with words like "Cheater," "Liar" and "Seduction" written on her body.

We're told it was shot around early 2012 -- after her alleged affair with DJT Jr. while she was on 'Celebrity Apprentice' -- but was never completed because O'Day failed to pay the production bills.

Aubrey's remix features tweaked lyrics to make it about someone having an affair with a married man ... who seems to fit the profile of Trump's eldest son.

For example -- "You said that was the reason for your pain / But you were scared to ruin your family's name / Your wife's the only one glad we are over."

The song goes on to take shots at the unnamed married man, calling him an "a**hole," "f***ing liar," and "some coward that I used to love."

As we reported ... Aubrey's 2013 tune "DJT" is also allegedly about her affair with Trump Jr. -- whose wife filed divorce papers last week.
