Comedian Tracy Morgan has added his voice to the growing anti-gay sentiment in this country. Tracy Morgan's homophobic rant in Nashville was met with a smattering of boos -- and several people also walked out of the show -- this according to TMZ, who quoted a person who was at the show.
According to reports, Morgan took the stage at the Ryman Auditorium (pictured above) and went off about gays -- saying, "Gays need to quit being p**sies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying."
He added, "Gay is something that kids learn from the media and programming."
When talking about the possibility of his son being gay -- Tracy said 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 n**ger to death."
Afterward, Tracy told the crowd, "I don't "f*cking care if I piss off some gays, because if they can take a f*cking d**k up their ass... they can take a f*cking joke."
While his rant was distasteful and offensive to some, Americans such as Morgan, who have a live and let live philosophy, are reacting to being bombarded by stories of gay youths committing suicide due to bullying.
Rarely in these reports does the media touch on the chronic depression, and other mental problems, that often drive troubled youths, both gay and straight, to end their lives. Nowadays if a gay teen commits suicide, it is automatically assumed that he took his life because he was bullied. Millions of school children, gay and straight, endured bullying growing up, without taking their lives -- this writer included.
Depression (and other serious mental disorders) continues to plague the gay community, yet little is done to focus on the very real need for mental health resources in the gay community.
As long as gay groups, including the gay media, continue to push their agenda to make gays out to be the victims of society, Americans like Morgan will push back.
According to the AP, Tracy Morgan has apologized to the gay & lesbian community for his offensive jokes during a stand up comedy routine, in which he said he would pull out a knife and "stab his son" if he acted gay.
Morgan denies being a hateful person. He acknowledged that "even in a comedy club" what he said went too far "and was not funny in any context."
