LOS ANGELES, CA – ABC has fired Bigfoot from the TV show “Grey’s Anatomy” as an act of minimizing on-air interspecial relationships.
At the beginning of the season, the Cryptids & Humanoids Alliance Against Defamation was applauding the show for showing an interspecial relationship in a positive and realistic way. CHAAD’s yeti president, Longtooth, said, “It was like a breath of fresh air, especially after that awful lizard man fetishist storyline on ‘Law & Order’ last year.”
However, CHAAD has quickly turned against “Grey’s Anatomy” after it was announced last week that Bigfoot would be getting the boot. ABC representatives issued this statement: “Bigfoot was obviously not fired for being in a relationship with a human. Unfortunately, we did not find that the magic and chemistry with Bigfoot’s character would sustain in the long run.”
CHAAD was not the only one left furious. On a recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, co-star Patrick Dempsey explained through gritted teeth, ““I think his story line has come to an end. Thursday night is his last show, which is too bad, he has been a great character, and I don’t know what happened with that story line. They decided not to continue it for some reason.”
It was rumored that Bigfoot’s relationship would soon lead to a walk down the aisle, leaving the show to deal with the very controversial topic of different-species marriage. But it looks like we’ll never know.
