Isaiah Washington Speaks Out

Isaiah Washington has spoken out for the first time since he got fired from the hit show, Grey's Anatomy.

"I'm saddened by the outcome," Washington tells Entertainment Weekly. "I did everything that the producers and the network asked me to do. I came back under great duress and stress, and thought I was doing the job I was hired to do."

Last week he learned that he will not return to the show for season four and he obviously was a bit upset releasing a statement through his publicist saying: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more."

"[Grey's creator] Shonda Rhimes called me on Thursday of last week and told me that I would not be returning to the show," Washington says. "Just like she personally called me and invited me to the show. It was full circle."

Washington also admitted that he hasn’t gotten any love from any of his castmates. "Everyone is still on vacation. I don't expect to hear from my castmates. I did talk to Chandra Wilson and I got a text message from Kate Walsh. Everyone's doing their own thing."

Do you guys think they did the right thing letting him go? Shouldn't they have just fired him when all the drama went down?
