    I think this is exactly the kind of thing Louis CK was talking about. You immediately attack and resort to name calling, calling him “disgusting”. Maybe Tracy really is a big homophobe. But how is attacking him, forcing him to bow down to the will of organizations like GLAAD, and telling him “you can’t say this or that” really helping? In my opinion that just makes things worse. If there was an actual discussion that took place, maybe Tracy would have a change of mind and heart regarding his feelings about people in the gay community. I am not gay, so I don’t know. Maybe I’m completely wrong. But instead of telling me WHY I’m wrong, you’ll probably just go ahead and call me a “bigot”.

      Okay first of all Tracy Morgan is a grown man and its not the first time that he’s ben called on spitting out anti-gay jokes.

      Secondly If you have to explain someone that jokaing about “sticking a knife in someones neck” because they are gay is wrong then nthat person is very stupid. And ontop of it all that comeing from a black man, a man who’s race has been made fun of andpicked on in the past is inexcusable.

      Would the black community reach out to me if I made a joke about stabbing a “n***ger” in the neck. I think not the anger would be monumental. And just so you know I hate GLAAD. And they were the ones who “reached out to him to explain”

      if I ahd my way Morgan would have been fired from 30 Rock. Fired from Scared Tactcs. Lost his SAG and AFTRA card and been blackballed. He’s a grown assed man who’s responsioble for the words that come out og his mouth.

What do you think?
