Tracy Morgan’s hate filled tirade in the name of “comedy” backfired, as it should. Once again public figures think it’s okay to bash a gay. Morgan’s stand-up routine at a show in Nashville last week included “being gay is a choice,” if his son were gay he would “stab him,” and that gay kids who are bullied “should stop whining about it.”
Okay Tracy, if you think this is a cool comedy routine for the 21st century I can’t wait to see your reaction when some white dude does the exact same routine but swaps the word “gay” for “black.” See? It isn’t nice, is it? I can’t believe that such a high profile comedian would or could put this in his “routine.”
Let some white comedian go on a racist tirade against blacks or Jews and you bet that every comedian and supporter of Morgan’s LGBT hate tirade will do their best to finish that white comedians career. It’s total bullshit that anyone gets away with this hate towards the LGBT and even more bullshit the double standard. Yeh, I’m talking to you Chris Rock -“I dont know about you, but I dont want to live in world where Tracy Morgan cant say foul inappropriate shit.” Okay Chris -eat your words when theirs a racist comic celebrating his/her freedom of speech and has a laugh at stabbing blacks. It isn’t nice, is it? Total bullshit double standard. I especially have no respect for minorities who know all about discrimination and hate and think it’s okay to hate another minority.
