More Tracy Morgan Fallout

Tracy Morgan Not Enough

Tracy Morgan DID apologize after his anti-gay tirade he made during a comedy show in Nashville Tennessee.

We definitely think this is a step in the right direction, but we aren't all the way convinced that he's a changed man or that he's even really that sorry beyond his career image taking a PR hit.

Which it's no surprise that the HRC is calling for a little more than just an apology from someone who is a public persona and a potential role model to upcoming comics and actors alike:

“Tracy Morgan exercised extremely poor judgment and he did the right thing by apologizing. But that’s just not enough. He’s a role model and Morgan now has a responsibility to make amends for his horribly hurtful and dangerous ‘comedy’ routine. He also needs to go further than his apology and correct the record: no one should feel ashamed because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender and they should definitely not become a victim of violence. Words have consequences and Morgan should be held to a higher standard. Until he does something meaningful, his brand will remain tarnished.”

It's a shame that this happened, we actually respected and thought Tracy was hilarious before this incident.

HRC's right, it'd be nice to see him take steps to correct his standing with the community with more than a quick apology!

Do U think he's done enough?

    Normally I would just shrug it off as a comedy routine……but the things he said were not said in a joking manner. I am no longer watching ANY NBC shows until further action is taken against him. Disgusting……

  2. 2

    get over it!!!! who cares it was a joke, Perez is so obsessed with rights if someone had made a straight joke, or a fat person joke this would be a big idea. so get over yourself, we get that you are gay Perez but stop throwing your opinions on here, we only want celeb news.

  3. 3

    i forgive him….i have heard worst on this site….PLUS I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE HRC IS and i dont even care……

    TRACY MORGAN ROCKS…..FUCK EVERYBODY ELSE…i think glee does more to hurt gay people for being such a shitty show

  4. 4

    Of course his apology was forced. He's a homophobe. Fucking get over it. Half the country is homophobic don't try to change them just don't fucking listen to them.

  5. 5

    A role model my ass. Im sure he dont consider himself a role model nor does he want to be.

  6. 6

    Re: nicky45 – True. Almost pointless trying to change hate. Better to ignore it. The less attention bigots get, the less power they have.

    everyone shut the fuck up! political correction is one of the many things ruining this once great country. now we know how he feels and act accordingly. and that is avoid his shows and hurt him where it hurts the most. his wallet!

    Re: ANGELINA HOLIE IS STILL A CRACK HEAD & – DAMN RIGHT! if you don;t like it don't watch or listen. can't wait till glee's 15 minutes are over.

  9. 9

    Asians being bad drivers is only beaten out by one stereotype for being absolutely correct and that is gays being too sensitive.

  10. 10

    Whatever happened to freedom of speech? Now everything said has to come with an apology? There is no sincerity behind his apology because it is forced and a PR cleanup! So he doesn't like gays… isn't that his prerogative? This is the real world and not a fantasyland. Lets face it, the gay community will always be facing a lifelong uphill battle for equality. You may not like it, but that is just how society is. I never found him to be funny in the first place, and he sure as hell is not a role model to anyone even before this incident! SAN DEMAS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RULES!!!

  11. 11

    OMG they need to get over it!!! Like really just cuz ur Gay Perez not everyone agrees with Gay and Lesiban. LETS NOT FORGET THAT HE IS A COMEDIAN . U EITHER LIKE IT OR U DONT!!! DEAL WIT IT GET OVER IT!!!

  12. 12

    Here's the ugly truth about the world…there are people who believe homosexuality is against their spiritual beliefs. It's good that a light has been shone on his homophobic beliefs but to suggest that someone Must now come out and change his beliefs is just as ludicrous as his silly comments. You can't force someone to change, change must come in its own time and not just for the sake of his image.

  13. 13

    This dude is a piece of trash and should take full responsibility for what he said. On that same note, its so true - his apology is simply for his public persona and I know in his private self he totally believes everything he said. He should not be a celebrity. He should be poor lol

  14. 14

    Re: nverforgetsept11 – I agree! What HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!

  15. 15

    FUCK YOU TRACY! Disgusting man.
    apologize all you want, I'll never watch a show with you on it again.

  16. 16

    Re: nverforgetsept11 – yes he can say anything he wants and we can refuse to watch NBC shows if they support him.
    Imaging cutting big fat checks to a man who says such terrible things about us. Disgusting, I wont watch NBC again.

  17. 17

    LOL at "He's is a role model" ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!?! He conducts himself like a barely functioning retarded person.


  18. 18

    Everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

  19. 19

    Omg get over it!

  20. 20

    Re: ShakeYourkitty – I agree with you. From what I read, what he said was not funny, or meant to be. That being said, he has every right to say anything he wishes. Like people have the right to call him a homophobe and not watch his shows. Someone might want to mention to Tracy, that if he can't say anything nice (or funny), he might want to just shut the fuck up. By the way, I loved watching the bit on SNL, with him and Britney Spears, where he and she sing in the sewer.

  21. 21

    Tracy Morgan is a role model hahahahaha!!! That is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard!! Ok yeah he shouldn't have said that stuff!!! What if he had been talking about women or any other minority?!? Would you care then Perez???? Prolly not!! Stick to drawing dongs on peoples faces and "acting" like you don't bully people even though you still do! You really get on my nerves with your judging everyone!! Are you really any better than him?!?

  22. 22

    Re: maj3318 – "Get over it" is what you say….Let me tell you that we should not get over it until gays are not beaten and even killed because of who they are…Yes, ignorance is not everywhere, however it does still exist and gays are harrassed daily….it needs to stop….it is a human rights/tolerance issue. Tracy says it was a joke, but joke or not, this is the kind of thing that perpuates anti-gay actions and verbal abuse….Until people stand up against it, idiots like this will continue to verbally abuse gays….BTW- nice stretch marks on Tracy….gross and yuck.

    Obviously done for attention. Saw him live and he is so boring.

  25. 25

    Usually I think PEREZ overeacts like w/ (though I hate country) Blake Sheltons innocents remarks. And not letting people give money to whatever camapaign they want. Here you just printed before what he said and he hates gay people. Maybe he apologized for saying it outloud, but he really hates gays. When you hate a whole group of people there is/thong wrong w/ you and you desevere what you get. Sorry Tracy, it's over. But WTH HRC apology isn't enough, just spit it out what you want, don't ramble idiots you sound as ignorant as him.

  26. 26

    Re: ANGELINA HOLIE IS STILL A CRACK HEAD & – No matter how good of a day I am having, I get on this site for some light-heartened reads and comments like yours are what I speak out about….negativity, hate, intolerance…Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – - you are a sick @#$%…I pray you do not ever have children or have any influence on others….you are a hate-filled bigot….shame on you….open your eyes and your heart….Just because you are miserable does NOT make it right for you to take it out on others….also, it is not just gays (men) that defend gay rights….it is TOLERANT hetero people too….get it right if you are going to crawl out of your hole.

  27. 27

    Those whiners complaining about "Freedom of Speech" need to refresh their knowledge regarding what that term actually means. Freedom of Speech protects you from government persecution because you said something that the government disapproves of, it DOES NOT protect you from backlash from private institutions and individuals when you run your big, hateful mouth.

  28. 28

    This sounds just another example of a special interest group using an unfortunate incident to blackmail someone. I can't wait to hear how a large donation by Tracey to HRC will make it all go away.

  29. MRJ says – reply to this


    Ok, the man apologized. I dont know what more people want from him unless they want him fired. And if he gets fired I will be extremly pissed. People say idiotic and ignorant things daily. I dont see them losing THEIR jobs. Tracy meant what he said, and he can apologize as much as he wants. It doesnt change the fact he means every word he said. And for those saying they are going to stop watching the NBC network are idiots. NBC has so many amazing shows (including 30 Rock) that you not watching it will make no difference whatsoever. What does HRC stand for anyway?

  30. 30

    Enough already……If the gays would just lighten up and have some fun. It is comedy - remember.

    At the end of the day these people (celebrities) are real people, & a TON of them have said/done things that would offend or disappoint the vast majority of us. Truthfully, we all pick & choose what controversies we are willing to look past, & what ones we just can't. Sometimes we can separate the person from the performer, & other times not so much. For me personally I don't even have to make that decision this time, because I already couldn't care less about Tracy Morgan. However, I think forcing someone into becoming a spokesperson for something they don't actually believe is ridiculous. If you can't separate the man from the performer, simply ignore him. (how hard can it be to ignore this guy?)

    Celebrities are role models? That's where this whole pop culture thing goes wrong. Period. He needs to do more than that whack ass apology but ROLE MODEL? Try someone NOT in the entertainment industry, if these are your children's role models….YOU HAVE FAILED as a parent… Every celebrity, (because they are people) will let you down eventually. Im just flabbergasted at how much people expect from these other people because they are in the spotlight.

    Re: Lady Amalthea – this is exactly the point Im trying to make

  36. 36

    I am gay. I heard it. I don't care for a FAKE FUCKING apology.

    Bitch. u are not the star u think. u cant make amends for shit u obviously don't mean to take back.

    Retire your comedy along with the rest of ur thoughts. I am not buying A-N-Y apology u make.

    fuck 30 rock. thats not the only show on tv. not watching it till this bitch is FIIREEEEDDD

  37. 37


    u should study ur history. and than be fucking ashamed for the hate and judgement u pass on other people,that ur ancestors had to face. They are turning in their graves.

    He shouldn't have to do ANYTHING, it's HIS opinion, it's how HE feels, sorry HOMO-NAZIS!

  39. 39

    Re: Zitorage – SO agree, his apology was fake, he doesnt mean a word of it considering his REAL views on stage.

    as a gay man those comments he made really hurt

  40. 40

    Tracy Morgan is not hilarious. He is one of the cavalcade of 'terrible unfunny comedians' that are considered today. 'cutting edge'. He is only funny on cocaine at the Olive Tree Cafe in Greenwich Vilage opening for Colin Quinn. Overated on SNL. WAYYYY overrated on this show called 30 rock. He is Tina Fey's color boy when needed. Tracy, at least when your rude and say things that most whites would be arrested for, make it funny AT LEAST for the moment. Dick. Ohh, and Jimmy Fallon is 100x funnier than you.

  41. 41

    He doesn't have to apologize for anything. This is America! He can say what he likes and doesn't have to answer to ANYONE!!! I don't mind gays, but my god GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  42. Sarsy says – reply to this


    its comedy. other comedians make fun of cripples, religions, the Holocaust, sex, the internet, and fruit but i dont see you being mad at any of them!! believe me, im all for the gay community, some of my best friends are gay but i think youre getting a little over zealous on this one. hes a comedian. this is his job. people have said a MILLION offensive things millions of times.

  43. 43

    Re: giabread – THANK YOU!

  44. 44

    Re: LovelyLexi – Oh please, this guy said if (one of) his son(s) turned out to be 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 n**** to death." You think that's funny, that a dad says something like that about his own son? Does that fall under freedom of speech? Besides, reports on gay kids killing themselves because they are bullied make the news all the time, so for him to say that gay people need "not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying" is inappropriate, rude and incredibily dumb. There are plenty of comedians who make gay jokes, most of which are hilarious. But this wasn't funny, this was basically him saying 'what the f*ck is wrong with you sick people?!'

  45. 45

    Re: ConvertibleVWBug – he can say whatever he wants, that doesn't mean other people can't get pissed off.

    I'm going with what he said; he is an equal opportunity joker. He's got a screw loose…so?

    Re: LovelyLexi – his rant wasn't funny… It was DESPERATE AND HATEFUL. I've seen Chris Rock many times and even tho he touches the gay subject, he does so in a FUNNY way.

    Re: MissJosette – He can say whatever he wants but to open his mouth to barf "foul innapproriate shit" as JOKES isn't cool, and the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of the purpose of telling a joke. Last time I checked, jokes need to be FUNNY, his weren't, UNLESS you belong to the KKK or are a skinhead. Besides, WHO?? finds remotely funny rants like, "if my son talked to me in a gay voice, I'd stab him!!! NOT ME!! It is perfectly ok to not like gays but it is GROSS to judge them for who they are. Who gave you the right??

    Re: Sexsai – I agree with you 100%. What he said was deplorable! The money these people make is disgusting! But it doesn't take away the fact that we live a country where we have the glorious freedom to say whats on our minds, whether its right or wrong. We shouldn't have to live in a society where we have to walk on eggshells. It doesn't matter how politically correct a statement can be. In the long run someone is going to get offended. There is just no way around it. And then what happens? That joke of an attorney Gloria Allred gets involved.

    Funny is Funny…and guess what? Tracy has never been funny. I’m gay/fem activist to the core but really what we are talking about is a man that hasn’t been funny for many many years. Go back in the day and revisit SNL. He had the worst characters. I don’t know who his fan base is cause I sure don’t travel on the TM train. Meow to all & to all a good nite!

  63. 63

    Re: cika – Funny is in the eyes of the beholder. something tells me you have an…angry? sense of humor. get over yourself.

  64. 64

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Dear Pop: Why are u shouting? Why so angry? And, why do I have a feeling we aren’t talking about Mr. Tracy any longer? I think u need a very very stiff….um…drink. Meow to all.

    Re: MeowMeowMeow484 – Astronaut Jones. Uncle Jemima's Mash Liquor. Thats all he has done that was funny. And they WERE funny!

  66. 66

    He did more than your sorry ass did when you said fa**ot!

  67. 67

    Honestly, I don't think there's anything he CAN do. His true self has been revealed. No one would say what he did as a joke.

  68. 68

    Just because he said them during a comedy routine, doesn't make them jokes or funny. He effectively said that if his son were gay he would stab him. Think of the all the people who are going to hear this: parents, children (gay & straight), its perpetuating biggotry through society.
    PS. There is a big difference between "politically incorrect" and "hate speech"

  69. 69

    I love how retards will sit here and go "CRIES FREEDOM OF SPEECH ZOMG" or talk about their amendment rights, but then turn right around and go on a warpath for someone using their freedom of speech. NOT EVERYONE HAS TO LIKE YOU. We are breeding nothing but a bunch of pansy ass political correct dorks. Which is nice, when I have a son I'll make sure he bullies all the weak minded twats. Blame the parents for raising the kids up to be pansies. Goddamn gays are annoying.

    Re: NookiesWA – You're children will be too inbred and uneducated to bully effectively. You are the lowest form of person.

    seems people do need some thicker skin..i'm sure he was joking even though it came off harsh.. calm down..but he is right about one this and i am not joking.."born this way" is a piece of shit.. -_-

  73. 73

    He should be apologizing because his jokes were not funny.
    keep in mind he is a comedian and comedians attack almost every group of people with humor. Gays should not be an acception to the list.
    However, what he said didn't sound like a joke and if he intended them to be jokes then he should clarify that and apologize for not being funny.
    If this was not a joke and actually what he thought, then he should apologize for an unacceptably ignorant homophobic rant.

  74. 74

    Too little, too late. I'll avoid anything he's participating in.

  75. 75

    Freedom of speech works both ways. If he is allowed to make those comments, people are allowed to object and call him out on it. Its his own fault if he didnt think this would happen. Too bad he doesnt live in Canada..

  76. 76

    WHY would you have respected him before this? He has said this stuff before and the show and the cast have supported him. Iv never gotten through a whole ep of 30 Rock mostly cos I can't shake the horrible feeling I get from watching a child-abusing Baldwin and a homophobe on the same screen.

    I think some people need to have a little thicker skin! I mean, so every little comment anyone every makes about gay people has to be blown WAY out of proportion!!?? Am I missing something? Did someone actually get physically injured from a few WORDS??? Get on with your life and stop crying about someone not liking your lifestyle. Don't you realize that SOME may not approve and that it will ALWAYS be that way. But, SO WHAT? You enjoy it, so who cares what others say about it then? It's as if some people are just looking for something to be "outraged" about!! Gee Wizzzzzz

  80. 80

    You know when the President starts saying shit like this I will be concerned, but this was Tracy Morgan…REALLY?? WTF & who gives a shit? He is a low level comedian that can say anything he wants. Don’t get your panties all wet & soiled, just don’t go. It’s all about money & ratings sweethearts. Remember forcing people to apologize when they aren’t is PR bullshit & doesn’t count.

    Re: MsMeowMeowMeow – Exactly. what he said was dispicable but it's Tracy. his schtick is to be inappropriate outrageous and crazy in his stand up like Gilbert gotfried. he went too far and should fully explain/apologize next time he is interviewed.

  84. 84

    Re: sanfran1 – Liberals need to get over it. If someone made a joke about being straight and how it's wrong, would this have made headlines…NO! So who really cares. And guess what gays are the only people who get beaten up for what they believe…….So Tracy Morgan, I will continue watching your show and am more than excited for the season premiere of 30 rock!!!!

  85. 85

    For the likes of you and other hyper gay activists it will never be enough. Just like a white TV personality saying the "N" word; no apology would never be enough for the Jesse Jacksons et al of the world. It just astounds me that anyone in the pubic eye would say anything into a microphone about gays, Jews, blacks, even Muslims in today's instant 'on fire' world. Did he want to ruin his career? Was he on drugs that night and forgot himself?? Sad. And to think he has said in interviews he's a major fan of anal sex (with women)!!

  86. 86

    Oh and what was the "context"?? Was he being a character in a skit, or being himself? See? We don't get the whole story.
