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
