With the growing population of the GLBT community, and its life-threatening issues, it has come to the point where anybody and everybody are condemned for saying anything negative towards the group, including comedians. Tracy Morgan is the latest victim.
Comedian Tracy Morgan recently delivered a homophobic rant at a show in Nashville, TN. that has ultimately put him under the bus. During his show, Morgan stated that “Gay was something kids learn from the media and programming, and that bullied kids should just bust some a– and beat those other little f–kers that bully them, not whine about it. He said if his son was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N*gga to death.”
Morgan also stated that Barack Obama needed to man up and quit being all down with this just because he has a wife and two daughters. Morgan concluded by stating that he didn’t f–king care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a f–king d–k up their ass… they can take a f–king joke.”
Once word quickly traveled across the web about Morgan's alleged hate towards gays, GLAAD stepped in and demanded their usual apology, which Morgan eventually issued. However, not everyone is feeling so sympathetic or intimidated about what Morgan had to say. In fact, they are defending his right as a comedian to crack insulting jokes.
Comedian Chris Rock was one to support Morgan by taking to his Twitter account and tweeting, “I don't know about you, but I don't want to live in a world where Tracy Morgan cant say foul inappropriate shit.”
GLAAD replied with: “Language about stabbing kids for being gay isn’t ‘foul.’ It’s dangerous.” So, the saga continues.
What are your thoughts? People are talked about everyday in every kind of way. Do you feel as if the gay community are pushing too hard for acceptance of the gay lifestyle on society, or was Morgan's skit just too harsh?
