Isaiah Washington Retires from Acting Due to Haters

Isaiah Washington, the actor best known for his role as Dr. Preston Burke on the medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” has announced his retirement from acting.

He took to Twitter to make the announcement, stating that he was “done acting” after what he described as “unprecedented attacks” against him by Hollywood.

Washington faced controversy in 2007 when he used a homophobic slur on set, leading to his firing from “Grey’s Anatomy.” He later apologized for the incident and worked to make amends, but his career never fully recovered. In recent years, he has faced criticism for his political views, particularly his support for former President Donald Trump.

In his retirement announcement, Washington suggested that the “haters” who opposed his political views were a major factor in his decision to leave acting. He plans to focus on his family and philanthropic work moving forward. Washington’s retirement marks the end of a career that spanned more than two decades and included a number of notable performances, particularly his work on “Grey’s Anatomy.”
