30 Rock star and former SNL alum Tracy Morgan’s June 3rd stand-up routine drove offtrack, and eventually off a cliff when the comedian went on a homophobic tirade while onstage in Nashville, Tennessee. Morgan reportedly attacked President Obama for supporting the LGBT community, called homosexuality a choice, and even threatened to stab his own son to death if he ever came home from school and told his father he was gay.
When the audience began to turn on Morgan, he reportedly remarked that “if gays can take a dick up their ass, they can take a joke.”
Kevin Rogers, who was in the audience, shared his account of the hateful incident with Truth Wins Out.
-Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay shit was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that “Born this Way” is bullshit, gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because “God don’t make no mistakes” (referring to God not making someone gay cause that would be a mistake).
-He said that there is no way a woman could love and have sexual desire for another woman, that’s just a woman pretending because she hates a fucking man. He took time to visit the bullshit of this bullying stuff and informed us that the gays needed to quit being pussies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying.
-He mentioned that gay was something kids learn from the media and programming, and that bullied kids should just bust some ass and beat those other little fuckers that bully them, not whine about it. He said if his son that 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.
-He mentioned that Barack Obama needed to man up and quit being all down with this just because he has a wife and two daughters. All of this being followed by thunderous cheer and “You go Tracys”. Tracy then said he didn’t fucking care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a fucking dick up their ass… they can take a fucking joke.
Oh HELL no. It’s worth noting that Morgan works under Tina Fey, an outspoken advocate for the LGBT community. She has been pressed for a comment on Morgan’s hateful meltdown, but has yet to respond.
Morgan’s publicist, Nicole Charbot, issued this statement to Instinct: “There is no comment. Thank you.”
Thank us? Try begging our forgiveness. We’re guessing this is just the beginning of this story.
It’s worth noting that Morgan’s homophobic meltdown just happened to be in Tennessee, the current Homophobic Cup holder of our glorious nation. In recent weeks, Tennessee has stripped LGBT employment discrimination protections from the law, and of course passed the Don’t Say Gay Bill through the senate. Not that they needed they help, but Morgan’s tirade puts them miles ahead in the race for America’s most anti-gay state.
Tracy Morgan’s publicist, Nicole Chabot sent us a chilly “There is no comment, thank you for your inquiry.” after we contacted her voicing our concern for the safety of Morgan’s child. Our letter, below:
I’m writing in regards to Mr. Morgan’s reported homophobic meltdown while on stage in Nashville. While Mr. Morgan reportedly said a vast number of hateful anti-gay things, I’m by far the most troubled about his threat to stab his own son to death.
I know you commented earlier that there would be no comment on this subject, but you must understand by now that this situation isn’t going to swept under the rug. I represent Unicorn Booty, the most-followed gay blog in the world, and would appreciate it greatly if you would elaborate further beyond your initial “no comment.”
Thank you for your time.
