Here’s what Grey’s Anatomy writer Krista Vernoff had to say on the show’s blog about American Idol contestant Kevin Covais:
WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT KEVIN COVAISâ€™ SPEECH IMPEDIMENT? Seriously, how are you supposed to have a professional singing career when you sound like this: â€œYou should have told me yourthelf, that you loved thomeone elth, insthead I heard it through the grapevineâ€¦â€??? He is sweet kid â€“ even a talented singer, but seriously!
Now I see why all the patients on Grey’s Anatomy have ridiculous diseases: The writers think that disabilities are something to make fun of. Nice job, Krista!
