Longtime Tracy Morgan fan Kevin Rogers was severely disappointed by what he heard last Friday at the comedian's show, and took to Facebook to share what happened. Kevin, who is gay, says he expected some good-humored gay jokes at some point, but there was nothing funny about the homophobic turn Tracy's show took. Kevin wrote on Facebook:
He mentioned that gay was something kids learn from the media and programming, and that bullied kids should just bust some a*s and beat those other little f*ckers 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 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.
After news of the antigay rant spread, the 30 Rock star and former SNL cast member apologized. In a statement released today, Tracy said: "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. 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.”
Can you get over his "jokes," or have you soured to Tracy forever?
