Tracy Morgan's Anti-Gay Rant....And The Apology For It
First off, I want to say that I am appalled that he would even find this humorous.
Tracy Morgan went on a violent, homophobic rant during a performance in Nashville on June 3.
The “30 Rock” star made a series of jokes aimed at gays and lesbians.
“Gays need to quit being p**sies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying… [homosexuality] is something that kids learn from the media and programming.”
Morgan also mentioned what he’d do if his son told him he’s gay, “I’ll pull out a knife and stab that little n**ger to death.”
He also said women are only lesbians because they hate men.
10 to 15 audience members were said to have left during his tyrant.
His apology for the "joke" is below. Please leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments!
“I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.”
Tina Fey (a long time supporter of gay rights) has responded to the rant by saying that the violent imagery was disturbing, but that he isn't a hateful person.
