Isaiah Tries to Make Nice with the Gays

Supposedly reformed gay-basher Isaiah Washington did a public service announcement for gay advocacy groups, but for an ad that stresses the importance of words, it didn't really say a whole lot.

Washington doesn't reference his "fa**ot" slur against "Grey's Anatomy" cast member directly -- saying only that using certain words sends "a message of hate" -- and overall, the takeaway from the ad is that words ... mean something! All the time! Bet Isaiah wishes he'd known this earlier!

Words, it seems, can also maybe cost you your job, as Washington's fate for next season on the hit ABC show is yet to be determined.
