Washington: 'I Have No Time To Sue Abc'
Actor ISAIAH WASHINGTON has no plans to sue U.S. TV network ABC for firing him from GREY'S ANATOMY after he was accused of using a homophobic slur against gay castmember T.R. Knight.
During an interview with U.S. TV newsman Larry King, which aired on Monday (02Jul07), Washington admitted using the gay slur 'faggot' during a row with Grey's Anatomy co-star Patrick Dempsey last October (06), but insisted Knight was never involved, and that he never directed a gay slur at him.
The 43-year-old also told King that although he twice tried to resign from the show following the controversy, he has no plans to launch a lawsuit against ABC bosses who then went on to sack him.
He said, "I don't have time for it."
