Isaiah Washington: Fa**ots, No. Narcoleptics, Yes!

3/9/2007 3:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Isaiah WashingtonIt seems there is one group that rehabbed homophobe Isaiah Washington does stick up for -- narcoleptics!

The tired "Grey's Anatomy" doc became a spokesperson for the Narcolepsy Network's awareness campaign in 2006, prior to his highly publicized "f-word" diatribes. Isaiah's "Grey's" co-star, Kate Walsh, is the organization's 2007 spokesperson.

Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological sleep disorder caused by the brain's inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles normally, as one might find while watching "Grey's Anatomy."

As many as 200,000 Americans suffer with the debilitating disease. Although Washington is not afflicted with narcolepsy, he says, "People living with narcolepsy need to know they're not alone and that they can get help." No word on how he feels about gay narcoleptics.

A rep for the Narcolepsy Network told TMZ, "Isaiah did a great job on the campaign."

Hilarious! I have narcolepsy and I've fallen asleep during that show. It's a trigger for me, apparently.

TMZ is a very hypocritical website. You call people out of their names such as b**ch, fat and ulgy. You show pictures of people in their most embarrassing moments i.e. digging in their noses and/or pulling there underwear out of their butts. After all of this you have the gall to talk about Isaiah Washington. "Everyone of you should sweep around your own front porch before you try to sweep around someone else's porch". This means to judge your owe life and things you are doing to improve your world and the world around you. If we are going to punish Isaiah continually for saying the "F" word(and it was negative and it should not have been said) then we are going to have to punish the entire world. We would all have to go to rehab for saying something offensive about another person or another race if we had to be in Mr. Washington shoes. We all say things at work that should not be said. He has apologized. African-Americans do not have any role models in real or fictional life to look up to and now the Hollywood "machine" wants to destroy one of the few we have. If you had not notice there are not that many shows with black actors on them. Can you protest that? You are doing the same thing that Sen. Joe McCarthy did when he red -balled actors years ago. Report the facts and just the facts and leave your bias opinions out of the stories. That is true journalism.

I like how everyone is like "OMG HE IS IGNORANT" but you will all make cracks like "narocleptic seizure!" "I hope he goes into a deep narcoleptic sleep"

These are all ignorant comments as well. Whether its a slam against the disabled (guess who? narcoleptics!) or an asshole like Isaiah Washington, its still ignorant.

PS Narcoleptics don't have "seizures"
