Tracy Morgan may be encouraged to say outrageous things on 30 Rock, but the actor's real-life rant in Nashville last week has landed him in trouble with multiple gay rights groups.
A week after the comedian took the stage at the Ryman Auditorium and went off on homosexuals - saying he'd stab his son if he turned out to be gay, among other scathing remarks - the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the Human Rights Campaign have both issued statements.
In the first, the President of GLADD writes: "We call on him to remove these violently anti-gay remarks from his show and send a strong message that anti-gay violence is not something to joke about."
Echoes the Human Rights Campaign: "Hateful remarks that mock youth suicides and the very real emotional and sometimes physical bullying LGBT kids face on a daily basis have no place in a comedy routine.
"If these allegations are true, Tracy Morgan must immediately accept responsibility and apologize.”
Do you think Morgan crossed a line with this routine?
