Y’all remember Isaiah Washington, right? He was fired from “Grey’s Anatomy” for using a homophobic slur and now he’s making headlines again for his political views.
He told Fox Nation’s “Nuff Said” that he feels some people in #Hollywood are afraid to “come out” as conservative and revealed that he himself is a #Trump supporter, according to Newsweek. “You got a lot of conservative or centric libertarian-minded people that really care about other people but they are terrified to come out of the closet and say anything that’s not in line with the Democratic party,” Washington told “Nuff Said” host Tyrus.
He doubled down on his position saying that he supports the #WalkAway movement, which is an online campaign that encourages people who feel left behind by the Democratic party to leave and seek other alternatives including the Republican party.
Washington added that he felt Democrats are “not doing enough” for the Black community and highlighted Trump’s support for the First Step act, which is a bill that would reduce a prisoner’s sentence for good behavior and assist them to assimilate with society upon their release.
“I’m going to support the policy over the person,” Washington said.
He’s been voicing his opinion on the Democratic party. Back in April, Washington tweeted that he left the Democratic party because of his lack of acknowledgment for his civic work from the Obama Administration, which is why he claims he felt left behind.
Around the same time Obama was elected, Washington was dealing with the “Grey’s Anatomy” drama. He acknowledged using a homophobic slur in an argument with co-star Patrick Dempsey.
In July 2007, Washington said on “Larry King Live” he felt provoked by Dempsey and used the homophobic slur to explain how he felt felt Dempsey was treating him on set, using the slur in an effort to convey “somebody who is being weak and afraid to fight back.” He was later fired from the show.
