(and yes that was the gayest looking picture of Tracy I could find)
I bet that black guy who got fired from ‘Greys Anatomy’ because someone thought he might have said “faggot” is going out of his mind right now, because Tracy Morgan said he’d stab his own son to death if he was gay, and yet yesterday he began to do interviews and meet with gay and lesbian groups to find ways to make amends and put this behind him.
First was an interview with Russell Simmons, where Tracy apologized in no uncertain terms, and acknowledged that what he said was “indefensible”
“I guess the reason I am successful is because I am so unfiltered. And sometimes as a result I say really stupid shit. The truth is if I had a gay son, I would love him just as much as if he was straight … I might have to try to love even more because I know of the difficulty that he would have in society.”
“Of all the sicknesses, there is probably none more abusive than homophobia. My heart is committed to giving everyone the same rights that I deserve for myself. I don’t care if you love the same sex as long as you have the ability to love someone … I am deeply sorry for the comments I made.
What I am most sad about is the comments I made about kids and bullying. I would never want any young person to think that I wasn’t on their side and if any young person thinks they can bully a young gay kid, come see me at 30 Rock. On the corner, I would be happy to meet you. Or Brooklyn if you can’t make it into Manhattan.”
Or in Tennessee, because that’s where Tracy will be next week, to film a PSA with GLAAD and to help them protest the states recent ban on the discussion of homosexuality in public schools before the ninth grade.
In other words, GLAAD is using him to gain exposure for their causes which the vast majority never would have heard about otherwise, and Tracy has to play along whether he wants to or not. What is so bad about waiting until the 9th grade to talk about homosexuality? I think gay people should be equal in every way, have all the same rights and liberties, mostly because I don’t give a fuck and I got a long list of people to complain about before I get to the gays, but that seems fairly reasonable. Or here’s a better idea: how about everybody put their pants back on and we talk about some math. Should we really have a room of 8 year old boys sitting in a circle on the floor while a grown man tells them how great cock is? Yeah, good thinking GLAAD. That’ll help change your image.
