Isaiah the Coward

Isaiah Washington apologized to everyone in the world for using the word "faggot," but he never made it clear if he had, in fact, hurled the insult at T.R. Knight during a physical fight with "Grey's" co-star Patrick Dempsey.

You'll recall that last October, Washington allegedly exploded at Dempsey and said, "I'm not your little faggot like T.R."

At the Globes on Monday, Isaiah finally responded and said he never used the word "faggot." That comment drew lots of criticism and now Washington has said he's sorry. What he actually said was, "By repeating the word Monday night, I marred what should have been a perfect night for everyone..." So, he's sorry he said it Monday night. But what about that incident on the set? Is he saying he lied when he claimed he never used the word "faggot" on the set? And, by the way, what does Washington mean when he says "By repeating the word" faggot? Is he acknowledging the lie when he said he never used the word?

All morning, TMZ called multiple people from Washington's camp, and from "Grey's" to get some clarity. Radio silence. No one will comment.

The one thing we can say... what a wuss for not taking his medicine like a man.
