You may have heard about it here, but Britt Griffith is no longer with Ghost Hunters on Syfy. The situation was over derogatory words he used in an interview (which I won't repeat and don't condone). The interview was first reported on at Examiner.com.
To be honest, I've heard rumors about this for days now and remained silent. A decision I made in the interests of allowing the man to release the news in his own time perhaps reveals me to be delinquent in my reporting duties.
See, I know Griffith personally, and live and work closely with members of the homosexual community. So any way I look at this, I cannot be subjective about this topic.
I vehemently disagree with his word choice and sentiments. With that said, I don't think Griffith is a bad guy, but a good guy who said some bad things that - based on conversations with the man - I do not believe accurately reflect his thoughts.
Beyond that, this site will not opine on the matter or on Syfy's decision. However, I do hope one potential positive outcome of this situation is that, as a nation, we will continue to discuss diversity, tolerance and the power of language.
