The one thing you can count on in America is knowing that if you’re in some horrific accident, some total stranger will be on hand to document your nightmare on video. TMZ naturally and inevitably bought cell phone footage from some lottery winner who happened to be driving on the Turnpike the late night Tracy Morgan’s comedy caravan got plowed, killing one guy and injuring several others badly. Friends of Tracy Morgan like Louis C.K. and Judd Apatow have petitioned TMZ to remove the crash scene footage. At least a 2014 version of a formal petition, so, a couple Tweets. Comedian Artie Fuqua is actually seen in the video, being pulled unconscious from the wreckage. His daughter has also asked TMZ to please remove the video because she doesn’t want people virtually rubber necking her dad’s near fatal car accident.
All of which makes sense. Unless you’re TMZ and you paid good money to the lovely Spanish speaking couple who had the entrepreneurial spirit to film while others were out of their cars pretending they knew what to do in an accident. My Spanish is kind of rusty, but I think what they’re saying is ‘There are plenty of people helping already, let’s film this shit and quit those twelve hour shifts cleaning Sbarro toilets at the Molly Pitcher rest stop.’ TMZ paid them some bundle for the footage and now TMZ wants a return on their investment. Louis C.K. be damned, along with the rest of the people talking about how heinous and despicable TMZ is then clicking, oh, THIS LINK TO THE TMZ CAR CRASH VIDEO.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is one of the largest events of its kind in the world, as famous comedians from a variety of genres have performed in Australia’s premier humor showcase for the last 27 years. This year’s event, which runs through the 21st, may be the most notable, though, thanks to Tracy Morgan and a bunch of people who wasted $70.
During one of his two sold-out shows on Saturday night, Morgan did what he’s famous for and told some raunchy jokes, which caused a bunch of people to storm out and complain. So what did he say that was so horrible?
“It was all sexually related. He said he was a pervert and this is the sort of stuff he liked and then it went on from there,” Sue told 3AW radio.
“It was like a horrible experience.
“He went everywhere, he discussed disabled people having sex, what his experiences were, everything he discussed was just disgusting.” (Herald Sun)
I hope that when “Sue” and the rest of the PG police stormed out, they were ushered into another theater, where the ghosts of Richard Pryor and Red Foxx were performing for the rest of eternity, and the doors were welded shut behind them.
TRACY MORGAN – is in trouble again for making fun of people during his stand-up, this time about the mentally handicapped. Um, I think that’s just the way he normally talks. This is a big misunderstanding. (e!)
PARTY DOWN – was a fantastic show that was cancelled way too early, but now there’s a real chance a movie might be made. Or at least there will be if they want me to tell them what the antidote to the poison is. (/film)
BRANDI GLANVILLE AND CAMILLE GRAMMER – and the cast of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ spent another day in bikinis in Hawaii. It was like a MILF porn, except worse in every way. (bauer griffin)
TRACY MORGAN – was so upset that he cried during his interview with Russell Simmons, according to Simmons. Wait, he cried? Hahaha, no way! Just like a little fa… oh, umm… ne-never mind. (popeater)
HUGH HEFNER – was supposed to get married to Playmate Crystal Harris in just 5 days (he’s 85 and she’s 25, btw), but he went on twitter today and wrote, “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.” Now replace the word “Crystal” with the word “Hugh” and “heart” with “diaper”. There’s your explanation. (e!)
BLAKE LIVELY – wore this sexy little dress this morning on ‘Today’ and ‘Regis and Kelly’ to promote ‘The Green Lantern’, which opens Friday, and what I wouldn’t give to get a look under that. I bet she’s… oh hey wait. Ok I gotta go. l’ll catch up to you guys later. (splash news, inf)

(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.

Tracy Morgan is of course in huge trouble for things he said about gay people during a concert in Nashville earlier this month, specifically on how he would react if his son was gay (“He better talk to me like a man and not in a gay voice or I’ll pull out a knife and stab that little nigger to death.”)
Well this weekend Wanda Sykes went on her twitter and blamed the state of Tennessee, saying that Tracy wouldn’t have said those things in Los Angeles.
- “I fault the TN lawmakers. They’ve created an anti-gay environment.”
– “Don’t believe Tracy would be so ignorant in LA, because we have a mayor, a city council,and police chief who believes we are all equal.”
Yeah that must be it. It’s Tennessees fault. That’s what I was thinking too. Because when I picture Tracy Morgan, and think of a place where he would fit right in and feel right at home, it’s Nashville, Tennessee. Finally, he was with his own kind. I’m surprised he didn’t fall asleep right on the sidewalk he felt so comfortable.
