Tracy Morgan Apologizes to Fans After Gay-Bashing Rant But Has Yet to Apologize to Sarah Palin
“Funny man” Tracy Morgan took a swipe at Sarah Palin recently during an interview at a NBA game.
Morgan said she was “good masturbation material.”
Of course, Morgan has yet to apologize to the Palin family for his sexist attack.
But, after gay-bashing remarks this week Tracy Morgan was quick to apologize to the gay community.
The New York Daily News reported:
Tracy Morgan’s latest stand-up routine is getting a lot of word-of-mouth buzz – just not the good kind.
Homophobic comments the comedian made during a June 3 performance in Nashville have become a hot topic of discussion online after a disgruntled audience member voiced his disgust on Facebook.
Kevin Rogers, who wrote in a Facebook note after the show that he’s “been a big fan” of Morgan “since his days at SNL,” went into the show expecting “a good ribbing of straight gay humor.”
“What I can’t take is when Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay s–t was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that ‘Born this Way’ is bulls–t, gay is a choice,” Rogers said.
Shortly after his on-stage rant went viral, Morgan issued a mea culpa for his actions.
“I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville,” the “30 Rock” star said in a statement to Gossip Cop. “I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others.”
