Tracy Morgan Goes Off on Homophobic Rant

by at . Comments

Tracy Morgan is beloved by millions for the crazy things he says on 30 Rock and in real life. But has the comedian gone too far?

During a performance last Friday night in Nashville, the actor went off on the gay community. It would be one thing if he had original, funny jokes to crack, but it's unclear where the humor was meant to lie in the following statements:

  • "Gays need to quit being pussies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying.
  • "Gay is something that kids learn from the media and programming."
  • My son "better talk to me like a man and not in a gay voice or I'll pull out a knife and stab that little n-gger to death."
  • "I don't "f*cking care if I piss off some gays, because if they can take a f*cking dick up their ass... they can take a f*cking joke."
Tracy Morgan on The Late Show

In response, the folks at The Ryman Auditorium issued this statement:

"The Ryman Auditorium regrets that people were offended by statements made by Tracy Morgan during his June 3 appearance. The Ryman does not control the content presented by people appearing on its stage, nor does it endorse any of the views of, or statements made by, such persons."

Morgan often pushes the limits. Just listen to what he once said about Michelle Obama.

But is this too much?

I think the antihomo masses should make a monolithic show of boycott of any industry (including the media industrial complex) which has prohomo leanings. We should unite in a huge display of protest at every gay parade. Have you seen one of those? They are not about love, they are all about perversion and debauchery. I couldn't imagine taking children to a gay parade. Unless, I was in the business of creating demented humans.

I believe he should be allowed to say anything he wants. I also believe that no one should call him homophobic...I have also been called this and I have to say, I have no phobia whatsoever when it comes to gay people. I am not scared of them (I just find it absolutely gross) and I imagine he isn't either. I prefer the more PC term "antihomo". Besides, I imagine his views represent the mainstream. According to most accounts, the gays make up no more than 3% of the population. Why are the rest of forced to have to deal with such a minuscule issue. I am sick and tired of the Orwellian tactics of the media and the government. Quit forcing your views on the rest of us! Quit telling those of us in the majority how to think and feel. You will never be able to force me to accept anything I don't like, just like my mother could never force me to like squash!

americans are so flipping uptight these days. whites/blacks/hispanics, chrisitan/jewish/muslim, straight/gay/bi. it keeps getting jammed down our throats to accept/like this group or that culture. you can't expect everyone to like everyone. you can't expect everyone to accept everyone. the quicker we realize this, the better off we will be. let's get some honesty up in here! our society has become nothing but a bunch of apologists. it's disgusting. if you don't think tracy morgan is funny, don't watch him. but by saying "fire him!" or anything else negative, you are demonstrating the same intolerance you accuse him of. no one has a sense of humor anymore. everyone has to be frightened of what they're saying and which group will be offended next. puh-lease!!!
