During a recent comedy performance in Nashville, Tracy Morgan allegedly said that:
“If his son was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not (mimicked gay, high pitched voice) or he would pull out a knife and stab that little nigger to death”.
He also said that:
“He didn’t fucking care if he pissed off some gays”.
Well gays, GLAAD (Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), & actors like Tina Fey & Olivia Munn, were pissed off as fuck and demanded an apology from Tracy Morgan, a comedic actor (30 Rock).
Like many “oops I fucked up” actors before him, Tracy apologized & released a statement to GLAAD:
“I’m sorry for what I said. I didn’t mean it. I never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone. My family knew what it was like to feel different. My brother was disabled and I lost my father to AIDS in 1987. My dad wasn’t gay but I also learned about homophobia then because of how people treated people who were sick with that.”
