Washington Leaving Grey’s Anatomy

Isaiah Washington has been fired from the ABC hit “Grey’s Anatomy”.

Washington’s rep confirmed this evening to TMZ that “Grey’s” creator Shonda Rimes called Isaiah today and told him he would not be invited back to the show next season.

TV Guide, who first broke the story, reports that the decision was due only in part to Washington’s onset troubles and was a result of a “pattern of problematic behavior” and not the now infamous homophobic slander incident.

Washington issued the following statement: “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
