Tracy Morgan Is Not Funny!

Everyone has now heard about "comedian" Tracy Morgan's rabid, homophobic rant during a stand-up comedy act in Nashville earlier this month. He went into a tirade lasting several minutes during which a few members of the audience walked out but even more clapped and cheered.

Mr. Morgan:

It is not funny to say you would kill your children if they told you they were gay!
It is not funny to use the "n" word, even if you are black and even less funny to use the term referring to your own children!
It is not funny to tell bullied kids to "man up and quit being pansies"!
It is not funny to say that "Being gay is a "choice"!

Tracy Morgan is not funny. He is an ignorant, knuckle dragging homophobe and should be out looking for a new job, preferably something out of the public eye!

No Tracy, I do not accept your half-hearted "I'm sorry I got caught" apology. Way too little and way too late.

The organization, Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays doesn't sound particularly impressed with Morgan's apology either. From the PFLAG blog:
“At a time when bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth is at an all-time high - when kids are being assaulted, are dying - to joke about committing violence against a child is outrageous and reprehensible. As a celebrity, Mr. Morgan needs to understand that his words have power; inciting violence against gay and lesbian kids in the name of comedy – stating that he would stab his own son to death if he was gay – is absolutely unconscionable. A simple apology is not enough – Mr. Morgan must take meaningful action to prove the sincerity of that apology,” said Jody Huckaby, Executive Director of PFLAG National.

  2. A real slug. You are right... too little, too late.
