Everyone have fun getting raped in prison after watching this. I hope your assholes were worth it.
It's amazing how many alternative explanations people managed to come up with for "Why would someone say they hate gay people?"
I'm glad somebody finally had the courage to say this kind of thing out loud. Now I know it's not "politically correct" to say these kind of things about people eating lobster at St. Bart's, but deep down, we've always known it's true.
I don't get any of it.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
In context, it's supposed to illustrate how out-of-touch the gang has gotten from middle america. Out of context, it's one of the not-so-subtle digs at Morgan's stand-up and unstable persona.
whatever. He was a comic on a stage, it's not hate speech. Grow a pair.
Michael Richards wishes that were true.
I'm a fan of the most offensive comics out there, and Morgan routinely made fun of gay people in his act without objection. But being a comic isn't a defense unless the rant was meant to be a joke, and it wasn't. There's no punchline to 'Being gay is an amoral choice, and if my son told me he was gay, I'd stab him.'
Also I don't get the 'grow a pair' reaction people have. No one is trying to censor Morgan, or holding protest marches. People who don't like him won't watch his shows. Not giving money and attention to celebrities who are assholes isn't an overreaction, it's a sensible non-reaction. It doesn't take a lack of balls to think that a person who says stupid things, is stupid.

BEING BOTHERED BY BIGOTRY IS FOR PUSSIES
I like Tracy Morgan's persona on 30 rock very much, but his stand-up is awful, archaic bullshit.
I will accept offensive humor, but when you sit down and write something that is offensive, you better be absolutely sure that A) it is funny, and B) that hopefully it somehow serves to either combat bigotry or at least reveal some form of concealed bigotry or hipocrisy in society.
If you fail to do that, you are just a guy with a mic who got on stage and offended people for no reason.
In any event, my main reason for not watching Tracy Morgan's stand-up is because it's boring unfunny shit.
i'd even go into my michael richards defense but this site will eat me alive. Yeah grow a pair was a joke. But also get over your fucking selves. No shit he's a homophobe.
I saw Tracy's stand-up in Atlantic City last summer and it was fucking awful. And I don't mean it was offensive, but just not at all funny and a total waste of my $45.
Gottfried's jokes about the flood were funny because they were jokes. What Morgan said wasn't funny and wasn't jokes.

He needs to spend several weeks publicly apologizing for this outrageous statement!
