    Grey’s Anatomy star Isaiah Washington REIGNITES FEUD with former co-star Katherine Heigl over ‘free speech’… 13 years after being fired for homophobic slur

    • The 57-year-old actor took to Twitter on Monday to post a photo of his 41-year-old former castmate with a caption centered around free speech 
    • He shared with his nearly 225K followers: ‘This woman once proclaimed that I should “never” be allowed to speak publicly again’ 
    • He exited the series in 2007 after an on-set clash the year before, in which an anti-gay epithet was directed at another cast member at the time, T.R. Knight 
    • Their feud dates back to 2006 as Heigl alleged that Washington had used a homophobic slur which left her ‘furious and frustrated’ 
    • Washington apologized for the incident in a statement to People in October 2006  
    • Months later at the 2007 Golden Globes, a reporter asked about the alleged incident in which he reportedly used the word ‘f****’ toward co-star Knight and Washington not only denied ever using that word but also repeated the slur
    • Heigl also eventually exited the show in January 2010 which was two years after she reportedly caused quite a stir for pulling her name from an Emmy contention 

     Isaiah Washington has taken to social media to reignite his feud with former Grey’s Anatomy co-star Katherine Heigl 13 years after he was fired from the ABC drama months following an incident in which he allegedly used a homophobic slur.

    The 57-year-old actor took to Twitter on Monday to post a photo of his 41-year-old former castmate with a caption centered around free speech.

    He shared with his nearly 225K followers: ‘This woman once proclaimed that I should “never” be allowed to speak publicly again.

     No love lost: Isaiah Washington has taken to social media to reignite his feud with former Grey’s Anatomy co-star Katherine Heigl 13 years after he was fired from the ABC drama months following an incident in which he allegedly used a homophobic slur

    'I will NEVER stop exercising my free speech': The 57-year-old actor took to Twitter on Monday to post a photo of his 41-year-old former castmate with a caption centered around free speech

    ‘I will NEVER stop exercising my free speech’: The 57-year-old actor took to Twitter on Monday to post a photo of his 41-year-old former castmate with a caption centered around free speech

    ‘The world agreed with her proclamation back then and protested for my job and my head in 65 languages. I wish I was on Twitter in 2007, because I will NEVER stop exercising my free speech.’ 

    He exited the series in 2007 after an on-set clash the year before, in which an anti-gay epithet was directed at another cast member at the time, T.R. Knight.

    Katherine had come to the defense of her friend which was brought up by writer Elizabeth Denton on social media.

    Washington was on the defense as he replied: ‘Your opinions are your own, but you are a fool, a liberal and and misguided feminist to even try and defend this woman. You weren’t there, so die on this hill, whoever you are. She could have cared less about her gay friend. Chandra Wilson knows all about that too.’

    Back in the day: He exited the series in 2007 after an on-set clash the year before, in which an anti-gay epithet was directed at another cast member at the time, T.R. Knight, as the cast are seen in 2006

    Back in the day: He exited the series in 2007 after an on-set clash the year before, in which an anti-gay epithet was directed at another cast member at the time, T.R. Knight, as the cast are seen in 2006

    He was then asked by another social media user why he would bring this up after 10 years to which he replied ‘Because it’s the TRUTH. The End.’

    It is still unknown what may have prompted Washington to make the social media post. 

    Their feud dates back to 2006 as Heigl alleged that Washington had used a homophobic slur which left her ‘furious and frustrated.’ 

     Washington apologized for the incident in a statement to People in October 2006 as he said: ‘I sincerely regret my actions and the unfortunate use of words during the recent incident on-set.

    'You weren’t there, so die on this hill, whoever you are': Katherine had come to the defense of her friend at at the time which was brought up by writer Elizabeth Denton on social media and Washington blasted her

    ‘You weren’t there, so die on this hill, whoever you are’: Katherine had come to the defense of her friend at at the time which was brought up by writer Elizabeth Denton on social media and Washington blasted her

    ‘Both are beneath my own personal standards. I have nothing but respect for my coworkers and have apologized personally to everyone involved.’ 

    Then months later at the 2007 Golden Globes, a reporter asked about the alleged incident in which he reportedly used the word ‘f****’ toward co-star Knight and Washington not only denied ever using that word but also repeated the slur.

    Heigl criticized him publicly just weeks after that as she told Access Hollywood at the time: ‘I’m going to be really honest right now, he needs to just not speak in public. Period. I’m sorry, that did not need to be said, I’m not OK with it.’ 

    'I did nothing wrong': Washington recently talked about the alleged incident on set during an episode of his Fox Nation series Isaiah Washington: Kitchen Talk

    Washington recently talked about the alleged incident on set during an episode of his Fox Nation series Isaiah Washington: Kitchen Talk. 

    He said: ‘The story was a lie and misconstrued. But as a family guy, a father, I thought I was helping the family.’

    The actor also went on to say that he would never apologize for anything again.

    Washington said: ‘That’s why I’ll never apologize again — to this day.

    ‘That’s why [Donald] Trump doesn’t apologize, because when you apologize for something, then that it is admitted to wrong — doing something wrong. I did nothing wrong.’

    The two worked together for the first three seasons of Grey’s Anatomy from 2005 to 2007.

    Heigl also eventually exited the show in January 2010 which was two years after she reportedly caused quite a stir for pulling her name from an Emmy contention.
