    So It's TN's fault that Tracy Morgan acted the way he did?! STFU Wanda Sykes. My god, everyone in California needs to get their head out of their ass.

  2. 2

    how very nice of ms. sykes to blame tn

  3. 3

    Why The HELL is Wanda blaming TN. Free speech is everywhere WANDA. U are allowed to B ignorant in EVERY state! CAlifornia is so evolved, so much BEtter than the rest of the states, but you can't seem to get away from prop Hate can you…..You preach love and tolerance but didn't vote for it! And your Ex govener he preached about family values and well self explanatory, but put down Nashville because of it's backward politics. No I am not a country music fan or from TN just not a hypocrit or bigot! Yeah to Jackson.

  4. 4

    So glad everyone came out and said what they felt :)

    AMEN !

    Now. off with his head ;) F-I-R-E.

    Tracy Morgan needs to get his head out of his ass.

  6. 6

    I like my monsters w/ their hoods off, yeah for Tracy for showing who he really is. Now he has to suffer the consequenses, mayB he loses jobs or friends. It is a free country you can be a bigot but maybe not a rich and successful bigot. You do know one of his 3 boys has to be gay, God just has that kind of sense of irony ( ;

    This IS about comedy, Perez. It was said with the intention of making people laugh, not with an intent of malice or intentionally causing harm to the gay community. Granted, the joke bombed. Fair enough, but I doubt you'd be this incensed if this were said about any other minority group. Its a sad state of affairs in this country when a comedians comedy routine gets turned into something political just because someone wants to push their agenda. Its not that deep. Tracy is a comedian and just because a comedian tells a joke about a gay person it doesn't mean they hate gays!

  8. 8

    personally, I will never support anything that Tracy Morgan does, ever. a gay joke can be funny. what he did is bigotry in all it's ugliness. guess he doesn't remember how horribly people of color were treated not so long ago. apology not accepted. it was far more than just an oops kind of thing. right up there with mel gibson. unforgivable.

  9. 9

    This got boring after the first post.

  10. 10

    Ok, her blaming Tennessee for him saying these things is just as ignorant as him saying what he said in the first place. In regards to the law, many people here don't agree with it. In fact, I would say MOST people here don't agree with it, and a lot of people are speaking out against it and making their voices heard.

  11. 11

    Why aren't comedians attacked for racism? Sarah Silverman and Carlos Mendoza. Now I don't care much because they are comedians as long as they are just making a joke, it's fine. This is what I'm talking about, homophobia is becoming more important than racism. But, yes he took it a little far he knows Cheyenne is gay why was Tracy friends with him if he was really homophobic? And Wanda is retarded enough said, shut the hell up honey. And Cheyenne damn at least become bisexual, gosh he is so hot.

  12. 12

    For anybody who blabs about free speech, let's try this, "I would stab my __ if they were____." and fill in any nationality, sexual orientation, gender and then tell me it would be funny if a person close to you was one of those things. Morgan is just a talentless comic who has to use homophobic remarks to get a laugh and a really horrific one at that.

  13. 13

    Is this Hollywood Groundhog Day? I think I have seen this movie before. So called celebrity says something really insane, rude, and extremely hurtful. “Joke doesn’t play well” Celebrity argues with handlers that he doesn’t or shouldn’t have to apologize. Handlers win & Celebrity is forced to make Mea Culpa. Celebrity enters a Malibu rehab for undisclosed problems. So I guess we will be hearing from Tracy’s agent next week on which rehab he plans to spend in. I don’t know which one specializes in untalented hacks. I must call Dr. Drew on that one. P.S. I luv Wanda but she was off the mark on this one.

  14. 14

    Lots of people watching him were disappointed and didn't laugh. Some left then and others left early. There is a large gay community in Nashville. Don't think for a second there isn't. There is all kinds of clubs and cools things there. Nashville isn't made up of people from every state and country. Tracy wasn't complying to Nashville because Nashville was offended by him.

  15. 15

    While she's at it, how about condemming all of the anti-whitey jokes that Chris Rock makes his living spewing. If white people didn't exist Chris would be out of material and out of work. Tracey and Chris are BOTH losers.

  16. 16

    Attention all comics. Quit your jobs. Comedy is now being censored to death.

  17. 17

    How about bill maher and him mocking religion. Where is the outrage in that?

  18. 18

    Wanda makes good points.

  19. 19

    Re: mistique – Either you're an idiot or you have no idea what he said. There was NO PUNCHLINE…they were NOT jokes.
    There was NO PUNCHLINE.
    It was just hate talk.
    The only line that was an actual joke was the last one. All the others were hate speech.

  20. 20

    Re: piazzasbuttplug – Really pizza guy, well does it help that one of the wealthist places in the Us is Brentwood TN in Nashville , MayB that would change Wanda's "good points" . Making a stupid statement about Tn. negates everything she said.

  21. 21

    Re: nicky45 – Really? Bill Maher wasn't suggesting he would kill his religous children (by stabbing them). Maher was having an inteligent debate on a opinion subject, you are gay or not , you are black or not, you are female or not. YOU CHOOSE religion. BIG difference. Make fun of me all you want say I'm ugly I act funny, make fu of my intelligence spelling ( lol) use your words, but when you start to say you hate people like me because of the way I was born to the point you want to kill me( or because I'm from tn) there is the line. It is not funny any more100 QUit ur job it is not Lenny Bruce it hate speech.

  22. 22

    Re: mistique – yes, but the majority of what he said wasn't a joke really, unless you go with the idea that the joke is a guy who spouts awful feelings about gay people.
    tracey morgan is a lot like michael richards. both funny guys, but don't have funny material (just try and watch morgan's recent hbo special) so they have to go to weird shock humor. but it makes you wonder if the root if their humor harbors their feelings about other people. morgan thinks we should laugh at him becuase it's funny that he's not afraid to hate gay people.just not that funny.

  23. 23

    Re: mistique – there's a big diference between a joke about gay people, lisa lampinelli does it all the time and a core of her audience is gay people. and what tracy did. except maybe his last statement/ "joke", all he did was declare that he has awful felings about gay people, and that should be funny to us.

  24. 24

    Re: Snookietoes – yes but chris can find the humor in racism without being hateful. morgan doesn't have anywhere near the wit, intelligence, and observational skills of rock. morgan just thinks its funny that he has those views

  25. 25

    Re: nicky45 – yes but marer is mocking religion. making fun of it. finding humor in it. morgan is just stating that he'd stab his son if he were gay, and thinks we should laugh because he feels this way. big diference.

  26. 26

    What I have a PROBLEM WITH, besides Wanda Sykes being IGNORANT AND STUPID enough to believe that SOMEHOW, you enter Tennesse and all your non racist values leave you and you become HOMOPHOBIC, just because you are in TN!!!! (do they have some sort of force field hovering above the state?) Sorry, got distracted by Sykes stupidity. What bothers me is that these 2 supposedly KNOW MORGAN, WORKED WITH HIM and instead of calling him, talking to him personally, they both instead go out and talk to the press. So, they both rate right up there with Morgan and the three of them get the LOSER AWARDS, no actually they are worse than him. He was attempting to do comedy, but today in the comedy world, if you talk about gay people, black people, hispanics, you are RACISTS! But go ahead and call anyone of the right SLOW, MORONIC, IDIOTS, STUPID, and some 'liberal comics' have even called our former president Mentally Retarded and have gotten laughs. So, BOYS AND GIRLS it depends when political party you hail from. Yes, I have seen Tracey Morgan being called a Republican and that is why he made the gay jokes. No kidding. sick sick world out there.

  27. 27

    Tracy performed bad comedy. Really bad comedy, in the wrong way, to the wrong people. But comics make questionable jokes all the time. Louis CK comes to mind. He uses the f word (fa**ot) a lot as well as the n word. But he doesn't use them violently or to name call. However he has made rape jokes before that even he admits he doesn't know why they work ( see TALKING FUNNY on HBO), and I just finished watching some standup in which he calls his kids all kinds of names and threatens to shove a chicken up his daughters butt because she refuses to eat. Sound terrible? Yeah, but the audience laughed. My point is, Tracy is certainly not the only comic to make subjectively bad jokes. He was wrong but I'm not so sure he deserves to be villified. He apologized, he obviously feels terrible. Let's not turn him into the scapegoat.

  28. 28

    apparently you are only allowed to say mean and hateful things is you are gay because of free speech. but when straight people say something it is wrong and should be stopped.

  29. 29

    Tracy took it way too far. He's got a screw loose maybe drinking again? Wanda is right on about Tennessee too. republicans passed laws schools can't say gay. (say Takei)

  30. 30

    Go Cheyenne! (Sykes - way off)

  31. 31

    Re: stickrat – wrong. Chris Rock's «clever» anti-white rants ARE racist. If a white person made similar jokes about blacks or hispanics they rightfully would be labled racist.. But it is a double standard. His jokes are disguised as humor but they are hateful. And he chronically gets a free pass because he is cute. It really is no different than gay bashing etc… If he didnt write his hate material he would have no act… Although I didnt enjoy his good hair movie…

  32. 32

    Re: mistique – You are wrong…"just to make people laugh"? it IS exactly this type of behavior and words that can cause hate and violence…what is it? Like certain straight people have a brain block with this….imagine for a minute that the world was mostly gay and some gay comic had an "act" that said what he said about straight people….do you think you may be a bit upset by what he said….?considering the violence and the discrimination (not to mention young people today coming to terms with their sexuality)….Words like this are wrong period….AND until these things stop, we will speak up and say NO MORE!!!

  33. 33

    Re: Snookietoes – i agree that there is a bit of a double standard, considering history, understandable. but rock is an equal opportunity comedian, and some of his best stuff analyzes and rips his own race. not even sure you could even compare the two comedically. rock is clearly one of standup's current best comedian, and tracey morgan just isn't that funny.

  34. 34

    ooooooooookay i don't believe it is TN's fault.. it's Tracy Morgan's fault. It's crazy ya they have the anti gay bill there but the words came out of his mouth. other than that, i like what she said.

  35. 35

    All Tracy Morgan did was repeat beliefs that are widely held in the African-American community, even by people who work in very powerful positions in the DNC and the Obama White House–like Leah Daughtry. No one on the left likes to talk about it, but the fact is the African-American community is hands-down the most homophobic sector of the American population. It is so rampant that even Obama has addressed the issue in black churches.

  36. fiona says – reply to this


    Hey Wanda, I hear your opinion.
    Now let Mr Morgan work it out. I still support his free speech, no matter who it offends.
    I bet you don't protest him making osama jokes. Osama was a criminal in our world, and a saint in another culture.
    Who are you to judge right and wrong?
    You are just static.

  37. 37

    I really wish people would stop comparing being gay and being black. Unfortunately the gay community have caused the backlash with the in-your-face approach. One cant go into society and pretend not to be black as they can with being gay. Why do we have to even know or care who a person sleeps with.

  38. 38

    Wow. Wanda Sykes is really one to talk, when she does those GAY ads to tell people to stop using the word "gay". It's GAY when someone is so two-faced. We DO all have free speech, but people in the celebrity spotlight have a wider audience and need to be a bit more careful about what they say. We DO have a horrible level of crimes against gay people in this country right now, not to mention kids killing themselves because they're gay. A lighthearted joke is one thing, but Tracy pushed it too far. He's apologized, let's move on, world. Everyone makes mistakes, and everyone gets a chance to make it up.

  39. 39

    Re: mistique – I hate people as narrow-minded as you. You obviously don't understand anything. All because you are classified as a "comedian", doesn't mean it gives you the right to say extremely hateful shit. Do you see white comedians going up there saying really racist things? Do you think Tracy would be happy with that? No, and he shouldn't be, and nobody else should be either because you do not say hateful remarks about race, or about homosexuals. I don't know if you even saw what he said, but it wasn't even funny anyway. He just went on a tirade but none of it was even remotely funny. I have a feeling he was on drugs or something and just started a rant because he is usually very funny at his shows and they don't sound anything like that.

  40. 40

    Re: harrycontests – From Roseanne Barr -"comics reflect reality back in society's face–Tracy was just commenting on Palin, and the Republican and Mormon and Evangelical attitudes towards gays–its true that their hatred of their own gay kids is repulsive–and tracy nailed that"
    I tend to see her point of view more clearly than I see yours.

  41. 41

    Re: nicky45 – because religion IS a choice, unlike one's race, gender or sexual orientation

  42. 42

    Tracy just wants attention, a famewhore who wants his 15 minutes in the spotlight

  43. 43

    oooh! my opinion yay!..well I think, hes a drunk negro who unpurposely embarrasses himself which just-so-happens to be his comedy routine….since he started. Does anyone know where I can get a job like that?

  44. 44

    Wanda forgives Tracy….how sweet. If hat been Michael Richards up there talking about blacks she would have been all over him, ban him etc… Chris Rock picks on blacks and whites, but I agree with most in saying that a while comic could NEVER get away with the same thing talking about blacks. Such double standards. This country has gotten to touchy feely. Toughen up!

  45. 45

    Really wanna ride Cheyenne's FAT gay cock. BUT you gays need to chill OUT! Grow a thicker skin!! RElax!! LOVE TRACY!! So what if he hates gays. At least he's honest!!! LOLZ!

  46. 46

    I think comedians should have some free rein in their acts, but Tracy Morgan's comments do paint a pretty revealing picture nof his hangups. Instead of blathering about Tennessee, Wanda should point out that black churches are among the most homophobic in the country. In fact, the black gay guys I'm friends with have all described very rough treatment growing up in their community.

  47. 47

    Re: prickly – Perfectly said!!!!!! My take is the gay agenda is SOOOOOOOOO overwhelming now that you cant say anything even in jest about them. His jokes bombed but they were jokes. This entire gay movement acts so sensitive but they will crush anybody in their path. Its a horrible double standard. If you are christian or republican they will not hold back yet anybody who says negative things about gays is a bigot. You will never be taken seriously until you figure your shit out. You cant hate out of one side of your mouth while claiming anti-hate out of the other side. Your double standard ruins your movement and because of that it will fail. Be mature and respectful to all. Preach equality and practice what you preach. Follow MLK's blueprint.

  48. 48

    Re: mizzlovely – You are an idiot. He is on one of the biggest shows in primetime. His 15 minutes has been going on for 5 years. He isnt a famewhore if he is already famous you jackass.

  49. 49

    Re: stickrat – I meant to say I DID enjoy his good hair movie.
    outside of that you are wrong chris rock hates white people. his comedy is mean spirited and is done at white peoples expense. He has an agenda and it is not for unity. I think it's sad that he is considered a top comedians when most of his stand up material is hate filled disguised as comedy. if a white comedians said the same things about others that he does they would get slammed. it is the ultimate double standard.

  50. 50

    Re: Tsinakis – S/thing was mentioned about equating this to a comedian to a comedian saying he was going to "stick a chicken up his kids ass" ok maybe in context I would laugh at that. Tracy saying he hates gays and would stab his son if he were gay hits a nerve. Would I defend his right to say it, you better believe! I have NO agenda. Here is what I also defend others, to be able to fire him , ostracise him and critcise him not for an "aganda" but for spreading hate (MLK) and not being funny.

  51. 51

    News Flash - gay people don't like people that say bad things about gay people.

    But you know what, fuck them. True, they have the right to sleep with whoever they want but it doesn't mean that everyone automatically has to accept and agree with their lifestyle. Get over it and get thicker skin people.

  52. 52

    "We're so glad so many are speaking up and are not TOLERATING this! "

    And I'm glad that a lot of people are speaking up and not tolerating men butt fucking other men.

  53. 53

    Re: Scatter – I am not gay, grew up in small town Usa that Wanda hates, not around much diversity. I don't like that Tracy said he would stab and kill his sons if they were gay and other things. Does he have the right to say it, of course, but there are consequenses. It is not just the Gay community, or a minotrity that will stand up and say "hey" that isn't funny. NEWS FLASH>

  54. 54

    Tracy is just ignorant period. It isn't a black or white thing. It's just the way things are.
    Tracy is just a generation behind the times, for whatever reason!

  55. 55

    Re: Scatter – Evolve.

  56. 56

    For everyone who's worried about his or her right to free speech being curtailed:

    Tracy Morgan's right to free speech was not and is not in any way impinged. Nobody is going to put him in jail for what he said. That's what the right to free speech buys you: the right to stay out of jail for saying what you think. It doesn't mean that what you say will be well received or that there won't be other repercussions to your speech, like the loss of your job or income. (Some states have "whistleblower" laws that protect you from losing your job if you rat out your employer for doing something illegal but the fact that special laws had to be written underlines my point : the Constitution just says you won't go to jail.)

    So, yes, Wanda Sykes and Cheyenne Jackson are welcome to exercise their freedom of speech and condemn Tracy Morgan for what he said. And yes, NBC can pull him off the air if they decide they've had enough of his bigoted ass or more likely, if they decide their viewers have had enough. None of those things affect Mr. Morgan's freedom of speech. If he decides he values money more than making his views public, that's his decision.

    But, no, Wandy Sykes, Tracy Morgan's speech is not the same as yelling "Fire" in a crowded rooom, no matter how tragic gay teen suicides are. And there's no reason to blame TN for Tracy's lack of judgment.

  57. 57

    I am a full on Red White and Blue very Conservative person. An old fashioned patriotic, tears in the eyes when the flag passes, guy. On almost every single issue I am very Republican and Conservative. This means I Love what this place represents. Bashing people for their race, religion or personal decisions is downright Un-American. Bashing Gay people is full on wrong and hurts the principles of this beloved place. Tracy has the right to say it, but it shows he is ignorant. I have people in my own family who are Gay and I am the first to defend them and kick some ass if anyone gives them shit.

  58. 58

    Relax people, it is called "COMEDY!" It was not a malicious attempt to degrade anybody. That is what comedians do, maybe Miss Sykes should listen to some of her material. Some of hers can be taken out of context also! If we keep whining about all this so called "politically incorrect" material there won't be anything to use in their routines!

  59. 59

    One time I made the stupid mistake of listening to Howard Stern when Tracy was a guest. Tracy was so filthy that I shut off the radio and vowed never to listen to him again. Plus his dumb-ass jigaboo routine is getting a bit tired and not a role model for young black men.

  60. 60

    Re: mistique – The original complaint was posted on FB by a guest of that show in TN. The complaint stated that Tracy Morgan was not laughing or making the comments in a "joking" manner, but rather filled with hatred and anger when he said it. None of the audience was laughing as a result. Maybe you should do your research before you comment.. makes you look sort of dumb… Do you really think that his own black comedian friends and costars at 30 rock would be trashing him right now if it weren't a big deal? you think only Perez is making an issue of this? Stupid

    What is HRC and GLAAD doing about this?

    Wanda just needs to STFU! If i was hateful, oh i mean as 'funny' as she is, I wish she'd suffer from kidney failure. hahahaha. just sayin'

    Re: camaro1979 – Aren't comedians supposed to tell funny jokes?? TM's rant was far from being such. It was a HATEFUL rant based on religion. If he wants to spew nonsense maybe he should become a pastor.

    Re: Snookietoes – Shut up, you OBVIOUSLY don't know what you are talking about. Have you ever watched any of Chris Rock's performances?? He does mention race but does so in a superb, FUNNY way that brings cultures together. You see Caucasians, Hispanics, African Americans all laughing and having o good time under one roof.

    Re: Snookietoes – Just because you are a bagger Repug doesn't mean CR makes fun of all Americans. CR brings up right wing issues like W and DUMB PALIN so dont get too sensitive because your bagger Repug party is a JOKE.

    Re: moxiecrimefighter – umm Wanda is gay, so that may change your idea of her being two faced. Secondly i don't think she was blaming the whole state of Tennessee for what Tracy said, rather that their anti-gay policies let him feel that he could say those hateful things without repercussion in that environment.

  71. 71

    Wanda, you ignorant hypocrite. How does it even make sense to you that TN is to blame for this? Stereotypes are what get us into these messes in the first place, you should know better. Shame on you. Cheyenne Jackson is the man.

  72. 72

    Blame TN for Tracy's words, Wanda. Way to keep generating hate.
