Does Columbus Short Think ‘SCANDAL’ Cast Supported Him after Exit?

It seems Columbus Short is moving on with his life after leaving Scandal. But, did his Scandal cast mates stand by him after he was allegedly given the pink slip?

TMZ caught up with Columbus as he exited a comedy club this week and posed the question. Here is an excerpt from what reported:

Former “Scandal” star Columbus Short didn’t give up on his entertainment career after his infamous firing — he’s already back on the grind trying to claw his way back to the top … doing the comedy club circuit.

Short was outside Flappers comedy club in Burbank this week and we asked about his burgeoning career as a comic — he had a pretty fantastic sense of humor … and even fired off a joke about how his life is in the crapper…

It was all fun and games until we asked if any of Short’s “Scandal” coworkers stood by him after he got canned … and things got dark real fast.

On first glance, he seems to suggest that the cast did not stick by him after he was let go. However, it’s hard to tell from the video if he gave a definitive response to that question. [Side note: The reporter is absolutely hilarious with his Wendy Williams-esque line of questioning. He cut straight to the chase, relentlessly – ha! Reminds me of sports reporters interviewing the losing team after a championship series – “So, tell us how it feels to lose this career defining game?”]

At least Columbus seems to maintain a sense of humor in all the drama…drama that he created mind you – allegedly.  We suppose he has to laugh to keep from crying. Hopefully, he’ll get the help he needs to pull his life together and get back on track.

Do you think Columbus Short will ever make a career comeback?
