Tracy Morgan Jokes About Retards Now

Because GLAAD and other gay defamation leagues went after Tracy Morgan for a bit he did in a stand up routine, the gays are off limits for Tracy, so, he’s resigned to joking about the next best thing. Retards. Cue the pitchforks from the retard defamation league.

During two hourlong sets on Saturday, Mr. Morgan did not repeat the bit that had gotten him in trouble, though his mind certainly went anywhere else that allowed him to imitate a bedroom or bathroom noise. He also made obviously facetious claims, saying he had been the assassin of Osama bin Laden, and variously describing himself as single, in a relationship, married and divorced. (He’s engaged with three sons from a previous marriage.)

Then, just before midnight, Mr. Morgan said he had something going through his mind “that I can’t share with y’all.” Though the audience goaded him to continue, Mr. Morgan said, “I can’t. I just got out of controversy, man. This is diabolical.”

After another brief flirtation with a woman in the crowd, Mr. Morgan turned sincere. “I love you all so much,” he said, “did I tell you that tonight? I’ve been in trouble lately, and this was big for me that you all came out.”

Whatever he had been accused of, Mr. Morgan said, “I don’t have that in me. I believe gay, straight, anybody, everybody’s supposed to be happy in this world, man.”

Resuming his routine, Mr. Morgan warned his audience, “Don’t ever mess with women who have retarded kids.” As groans and cries of “Uh-oh” were heard, he continued, “Them young retarded males is strong. They’re strong like chimps.”

Finally, he concluded with a bit about his alleged teenage romance with a girl he described as “a cripple” with a prosthetic arm, a mechanical larynx and a portable dialysis machine. [NYT]

Then again, I don’t see how this is insulting to retards. He’s complimenting them, saying that behind the unassuming facade is a man with retard strength. He’s practically comparing them to Batman. If Batman wore a bike helmet and ate paste, I mean.
