Chris Rock Defends Tracy Morgan (Until The World Freaks Out At Him Too)

Be first to like this.

By now you’ve obviously heard about Tracy Morgan threatening to stab his own son to death if he ever told his father he was gay. Morgan’s violently homophobic tirade has become international news in the days following his meltdown, refusal to apologize, and then not-good-enough apology that he was shamed into making.

But did you also read Chris Rock’s statement in defense of Morgan’s, um, threat to kill a gay child?

Well, after the world turned their fury on Chris Rock, the comedian has changed his tune and apparently now DOES want to live in a world where “Tracy Morgan can’t say foul, inappropriate shit.

Rock, having deigned to actually read Morgan’s comments, released the following statement yesterday:

Tracy morgan is a tad off we all know that so when tracy says something i usually don’t take it anymore serious than i would a statement from gary busey or flavor flav .when i first heard the statement i thought it was offensive but it also reminded me of my father saying ill kill you if you ever bring home a white girl but after reading everything tracy said . wow i get it that shit wasn’t called for and i don’t support it at all. now can i please go to the tony awards without getting my ass kicked .

Loose lips sink ships, pal.
