Mayer Sounds Off On Grey's Anatomy Spat

Singer JOHN MAYER has come up with a way to end the controversy surrounding GREY'S ANATOMY star ISAIAH WASHINGTON's use of a gay slur against a co-star - make his character gay. Washington stunned cast mates in the Golden Globes press room on Monday (15JAN07) when he denied calling co-star TR KNIGHT a "faggot". Mayer writes on his blog, "What better way for an actor to get to the roots of his discrimination than by portraying the very subject of his own ire for the remainder of his contract?" The DAUGHTERS singer even went as far as outlining two scenes; one paints Washington's character as the webmaster of the fan site for the glam rock band SCISSOR SISTERS who also bakes tea cookies. The other suggests that a caged tiger be on set at all times to keep Washington in line. Washington issued a statement yesterday (18JAN07), apologising for his behaviour and admitting that he needed professional help to deal with the issue.
