Bullying Works? Isaiah Washington Quits Acting, Blames “Haters”

by Black America Web

If it’s one thing we’ve all learned within the past few years alone, it’s that many men — many many many many men! — that were once heroes in Black culture have all but disappointed us by displaying barbaric behavior and/or ideologies.

Much of that can be said for Isaiah Washington — once a pillar in Black Hollywood, now an avid Conservative that wastes no time expressing it on social media. Granted, most of his time online is also spent arguing with Black Twitter’s finest and those more aligned with left-wing politics. Whether being accused of an alleged homophobic incident on the set of his 2000 film Romeo Must Die, with rumors that late lead actress Aaliyah even had to check him on the intolerance, to that epic Twitter roast of his “drive-a-less-expensive-car” comment in response to Chris Rock documenting a DWB incident on social media back in 2015, let’s just say nobody is checking for the two-time NAACP winner. To put that in perspective, the last time he did more than two films in a year was back in 2013.

Suffice to say, it looks like all the backlash over the years has officially convinced Isaiah Washington to quit acting altogether.

Dreaming big there!
