Mo’Nique Claims Isaiah Washington’s Firing From ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Was Based on a Lie

In her efforts to expose Hollywood’s shady ways, Mo’Nique is, once again, providing receipts, this time as they concern another actor many have considered blackballed in the business, Isaiah Washington.

The actor was let go from Shondaland hit Grey’s Anatomy in 2007, reportedly for making homophobic comments and getting into a physical altercation with co-star Patrick Dempsey.

Mo’Nique and her husband, Sidney Hicks, recently shared an email that “fell into their hands,” detailing an ABC attorney who allegedly admitted to lying about Washington’s character, behavior and resume prior to his firing from the series, having written, “I knew we threw Isaiah Washington under the bus for Patrick Dempsey.”

Check out the full discussion below.

Washington has yet to respond to the email read by his Blackbird co-star, but recently acknowledged many of the misconceptions about himself via Twitter.
