LOS ANGELES, Oct. 20 (UPI) -- Isaiah Washington may be in trouble for a gay slur he reportedly hurled at "Grey's Anatomy" co-star Patrick Dempsey on the show's Hollywood set.
The National Enquirer reported on the fight, which occurred Oct. 9, and was about cast members showing up late to the set. During a heated discussion, the Enquirer said, Washington yelled: "I'm not your little f-ggot like (name redacted)."
The incident reportedly ended up forcing cast member T.R. Knight to acknowledge he is gay.
"I guess there have been a few questions about my sexuality, and I'd like to quiet any unnecessary rumors that may be out there," Knight said in a statement. "While I prefer to keep my personal life private, I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me."
The yelling of the slur has reportedly caused extreme tension on the "Grey's Anatomy" set and could cost Washington his job, the newspaper said.
