Tracy Morgan Backtracks On His Apology For Homophobic Comments, Raises Some Eyebrows!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayTina FeyDavid LettermanTracy Morgan

Oooh, Tracy Morgan!!!

While all of his apologies, both verbal and through action, seemed super sincere, he backtracked a little when he interviewed with David Letterman.

Back in June, he made horrific comments at a Tennessee stand-up, saying things like he would stab his son to death if he ever found out he was gay, being gay is a choice because God makes no mistakes, gays need to quit complaining about bullies, etc..

Of course, the whole, 'but I'm a comedian' excuse came into play right after. But so did some sincere apologies.

We were content with his efforts. But now he says things like, "I just think it was a misunderstanding, I was up there working."

Sigh…

While there is a misunderstanding, we believe it's the one that lies in any comedian's head who thinks it's excusable to make homophobic comments under the guise of comedy.

It's one thing to joke about other cultures in a lighthearted way, but when you twist the joke into something extremely offensive against the traits of said culture, especially when you add violence in there, well…that sh*t is just not funny.

Even the queen of comedy, Tina Fey, agreed it wasn't appropriate, having said:

The violent imagery of Tracy's rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the LGBT community.

We do think Tracy means well, but he needs to learn how his influence can really affect things.

    You kill me over this gay stuff Mario. This is AMERICA where you can say whatever the hell you want! Bullying is horrible and wrong but someone saying a WORD or saying they'd hate it if their kid was gay is their right to say it!! Get over it! It's a word. If it bothers you so bad, then just don't be gay :)

    i'm sure tina fey so regrets ever hiring this fool. so now he can't remember what it was he said that caused him to apologize over and over in the press. hell he even went back to nashville and participated in a press conference where he apologized and hugged the offended audience member who busted him on his homophobic rant. i can't remember, such bullshit. Letterman totally wimped out in this interview.

    an apologetic homophobe idiot is STILL a homophobe idiot. Just doing damage control so his career did not end up in the tiolet…We REALLY know what is in your heart Tracy…due to him ALSO being a minority, he should know better….dumb butt.

    You obviously don't disapprove that much if you profit off this clip by posting a paid advertisement in front of it. You give gay people a bad name

    I'm gay, he went to far as a comedian…but most all comedians do and they adjust their set accordingly. He apologized and did not backtrack here. Move on!!! Besides, you're not opposed to postings about rumors of people cutting themselves…do you not think that causes more measurable damage than a joke that has been apologized for?

    It will be interesting to see if Tina Fey fires him. If not, she's indicating that what he said was ok, at least to a point.

    David "I Cheat on My Wife" Letterman has a lot of nerve being judgmental of someone else.

    i have nothing against gay people and what he said was wrong.but if he said he would be dissapointed if his son was gay i would understand that.being gay is not normal.thats just the cold hard fact.if your trying to get society to accept be gay as normal you will always be dissapointed because its not normal.having said that they still deserve respect and happiness in life.
