Isaiah Washington's Penitential PSA

Filed in Gather Politics News Channel by on May 25, 2007 0 Comments

Ok, so you called one of your costars a faggot not once, but twice (the second time at the Golden Globes).

Ok, you’ve gone to rehab for your anger managment and homophobia.

Ok, your future on your hit tv show is in jeopardy.

What’s next for you? Well aparently the doyenne of national forgiveness, Oprah Winfrey, was already booked, because Isaiah Washington has decided to do a public service announcement about the power of words for GLSTN (the gay, lesbian, and straight teacher’s network) and GLAAD (the gay and lesbian alliance against defamation).

In case you missed it, you can see the PSA here.

The whole thing reeks a bit to me of self-preservation and complete falseness. There is evidence that it is working, though, I suppose. He was (and I hope they see the irony in this) awarded an Image Award by the NAACP recently, given to individuals of color in the arts and who promote social justice. Wow.
