Tracy has issued an apology after news broke of his anti-gay rant at his stand-up show. An audience member, Kevin Rogers, says the ’30 Rock’ star made a vicious attack on gay men and women, saying, “Born this Way is bull s***.”
Tracy Morgan‘s latest comedy show is no laughing matter in the eyes of many, including one bystander, Kevin Rogers, who reported on his Facebook page that the actor made a dead serious and vicious attack on the gay community. And the worst part — Tracy allegedly said if his own son told him he was gay, he would kill him. Isn’t this completely out of line?
According to Kevin’s Facebook page, on stage Tracy ranted,”if his son was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not [he mimicked a gay, high pitched voice] or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death.”
Kevin, a gay man, attended Tracy’s stand-up show last Friday, June 3, and was completely shocked by what he heard. Tracy is known for his past homophobic rants on stage and said before that being gay is a choice. But he delved way TOO deep into his feelings behind this issue.
“I have very thick skin when it comes to humor; I can dish and I can take,” Kevin writes. “What I can’t take is when Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay s*** was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that “Born this Way” is bulls*it, gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because “God don’t make no mistakes” (referring to God not making someone gay cause that would be a mistake).” Wow.
“He took time to visit the bulls*it of this bullying stuff and informed us that the gays needed to quit being pussies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying,” Kevin goes on. “He mentioned that gay was something kids learn from the media and programming, and that bullied kids should just bust some ass and beat those other little f*ckers that bully them, not whine about it.”
Tracy ended his outrageous rant by saying he didn’t care if he “pissed off some gays because if they can take a f*cking dick up their ass… they can take a f*cking joke.”
Can you believe Tracy would take it THIS far?
UPDATE: Tracy Morgan has issued an apology to fans and the gay and lesbian community for the anti-gay rant during his weekend gig at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
“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,” Morgan said in a statement. “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.”
