Why did Blue Power Ranger leave?

David Yost explains why he left Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers at Anime Festival Orlando 2010:

I was called “f a g g o t” one too many times. So, um, I had just heard that several times while working on the show from creators, producers, writers, directors.

And I know that my costars were called in a couple of times to different producers’ offices and questioned about my sexuality, which is kind of a humiliating experience to hear that and to find that out.
