Tracy Morgan Is Sorry

GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios slammed Tracy Morgan’s “anti-gay tirade” he performed during a stand up routine in Nashville last week.

“Tracy Morgan’s management needs to investigate these allegations and should they prove true, we call on him to remove these violently anti-gay remarks from his show and send a strong message that anti-gay violence is not something to joke about,”

“Hateful remarks that mock youth suicides and the very real emotional and sometimes physical bullying LGBT kids face on a daily basis have no place in a comedy routine,” saidHRC vice president of communications, Fred Sainz. “I’m shocked that Tracy Morgan would find humor in so viciously attacking our youth. If these allegations are true, Tracy Morgan must immediately accept responsibility and apologize. His employer, NBC Universal, also must come forward and condemn these atrocious comments.”

Shortly after, Tracy Morgan kowtowed and released an apology.

“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,” he said. “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,” added Morgan.

Hey, good win for GLAAD. But then again, if every anti-defamation group got their way, the only jokes we’d hear would be about airplane food and Jennifer Aniston being a lonely spinster. Come on. Face it. She’s not getting married any time soon.

He is so funny and NBC made that happen

His stand up routine is not funny at all.  He’s much better just acting like a weirdo.
