Tracy Morgan Continues To Repent For Anti-Gay Tirade!

tracy-morgan-continues-to-repent-for-anti-gay-tirade

We really, honestly don't know how to make sense of all of this.

Tracy Morgan has been pretty universally slammed for his recent violent, hate-filled and homophobic remarks regarding the LGBT community during a recent stand-up set in Tennessee, and now, he's once again not only publicly apologizing for his behavior, but wants to make it right with those he so deeply offended!

The 30 Rock actor will be meeting later this week with gay youth who have been rejected by their families because of their sexuality, as well those who have lost family members to anti-gay violence. He will then attend a press conference in Tennessee to protest the state's Don't Say Gay bill, which will outlaw the discussion of homosexuality in public schools before the ninth grade.

He also reveals in a statement:

“I guess the reason I am successful is because I am so unfiltered. And sometimes as a result I say really stupid shit. The truth is if I had a gay son, I would love him just as much as if he was straight … I might have to try to love even more because I know of the difficulty that he would have in society. Of all the sicknesses, there is probably none more abusive than homophobia. My heart is committed to giving everyone the same rights that I deserve for myself. I don’t care if you love the same sex as long as you have the ability to love someone. Also, you should have the right no matter who you are to protect and serve our country. I am deeply sorry for the comments I made. What I am most sad about is the comments I made about kids and bullying. I would never want any young person to think that I wasn’t on their side and if any young person thinks they can bully a young gay kid, come see me at 30 Rock. On the corner, I would be happy to meet you. Or Brooklyn if you can’t make it into Manhattan. When all of this set in, I realized how hurtful my words were. Not asking anyone to feel sorry for me or pity me, but I definitely don’t want or need people to defend me. In my heart, I know that the words I used are indefensible. I appreciate the love from my friends and fans, but I was wrong. Period. Now, I just gotta think of some funny shit, not some shit that gets me knocked upside my head."

"I know how bad bullying can hurt. I was bullied when I was a kid. I'm sorry for what I said. I didn't mean it. I never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone. My family knew what it was like to feel different. My brother was disabled and I lost my father to AIDS in 1987. My dad wasn't gay, but I also learned about homophobia then because of how people treated people who were sick with that. Parents should support and love their kids no matter what. Gay people deserve the same right to be happy in this country as everyone else. Our laws should support that."

Wow. Certainly sounds remorseful to us!

Much more like Tracy.

Which really makes us all the more baffled about his behavior that night! What on Earth would prompt him to act in such a way?!

Either way, we think that this a step in the right direction, and we sincerely hope that he continues down this path and really does want to change his thought process on the issue, instead of just saying and doing what he thinks he needs to to get back in the public's good graces.

We want to believe you, Tracy. Please don't disappoint us!

What do U think?? Should his comments be forgiven?

Chris Rock Back-Tracks On Tracy Morgan Support!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayChris RockTwitterTracy Morgan

chris-rock-backtracks-on-tracy-morgan-support

Chris Rock stirred up a little controversy this weekend when he expressed his support of Tracy Morgan's HOriffic, homophobic rant during a stand-up gig in Nashville, by writing on Twitter:

I dont know about you, but I dont want to live in world where Tracy Morgan cant say foul inappropriate shit

However, it appears that he hadn't fully realized the extent of the tirade, and once he did, the actor seriously changed his tune on the matter!

He now says:

Tracy morgan is a tad off we all know that so when tracy says something i usually don't take it anymore serious than i would a statement from gary busey or flavor flav .when i first heard the statement i thought it was offensive but it also reminded me of my father saying ill kill you if you ever bring home a white girl but after reading everything tracy said . wow i get it that shit wasn't called for and i don't support it at all. now can i please go to the tony awards without getting my ass kicked .

LOLz!

Exactly why you should be completely informed on something before you comment on it!

Lesson learned, Chris!

Tina Fey And NBC Entertainment Chief Respond To Tracy Morgan's Anti-Gay Rant

tina-fey-and-nbc-entertainment-chief-respond-to-tracy-morgans-anti-gay-rant

Preach it, sister!

In light of Tracy Morgan's HOrrific, hateful tirade against the LGBT community during a stand-up comedy show in Nashville earlier this month, both his boss and co-star on 30 Rock, Tina Fey, and NBC entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt have issued statements apologizing on his behalf!

Greenblatt says:

"We will always recognize an artist’s freedom to express him or herself, but not when reckless things are said no matter what the context. Unfortunately, Tracy’s comments reflect negatively on both 30 Rock and NBC – two very all-inclusive and diverse organizations – and we have made it clear to him that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. I speak for NBC and myself personally when I say we do not condone hate or violence of any kind and I am pleased to see Tracy Morgan apologizing for recent homophobic remarks in his standup appearance."

And Fey follows up:

"Stand-up comics may have the right to 'work out' their material in its ugliest and rawest form in front of an audience, but 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 GLBT Community. It also doesn't line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person. I hope for his sake that Tracy's apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian coworkers at 30 Rock, without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket. The other producers and I pride ourselves on 30 Rock being a diverse, safe, and fair workplace."

God, she hits the nail right on the head, just as we'd expect her to!

We're just as baffled by this behavior as they both seem to be, as Morgan never seemed to come off like this hateful a human being, so who knows exactly what's going on?

But we're thrilled to know that not even those closest to him are tolerating that kind of despicable, ignorant and violent thought process, and sincerely hope that this has been a huge wake-up call for him!

We expected better from you, Tracy. Such a shame.

Gay Rights Group Pans Kobe

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzBasketballKobe Bryant

Gay Rights Group Pans Kobe

And rightly so!

The Human Rights Campaign says that Kobe Bryant’s homophobic slander (calling a ref, “fucking f**got) "perpetuates a culture of discrimination and hate" and noted that what he said was “horribly offensive.”

Said a spokesperson for the group:

"What a disgrace for Kobe Bryant to use such horribly offensive and distasteful language, especially when millions of people are watching."

He continued:

"Hopefully Mr. Bryant will recognize that as a person with such fame and influence, the use of such language not only offends millions of LGBT people around the world, but also perpetuates a culture of discrimination and hate that all of us, most notably Mr. Bryant, should be working to eradicate."

We don’t simply want an apology for what he said, we want a CHANGE in his behavior. He obviously lacks some self-control if he resorts to that sort of hatred after getting a foul!

Mike Huckabee Won't Let It Go! Talks Further About Natalie Portman Comments

mike huckabee talks natalie portman again

Unless you're going to give a heartfelt apology, why don't you let it go! We've heard enough from you about this, Mike.

Last week, Mike Huckabee slammed Natalie Portman for having a child out of wedlock, even though she's engaged, and then he tried to explain his hateful comments, which just made things worse.

Now, he's trying yet again to justify his comments, this time by claiming he wasn't the one who brought up Natalie in conversation:

"I didn't bring Natalie Portman up at all. In the context of the first chapter of my book, and that's how he kind of got into it, because I talk about the importance of the family as being the most fundamental unit of government. So in the course of that, he asked me about her acceptance speech. I used that as a segue, not to talk about Natalie Portman, but to talk about the economic realities of unwed mothers."

It doesn't matter what your initial intentions were, Mike. The fact is, you spoke poorly of her, and even worse you gave single mothers a bad name in general, EVEN THOUGH Natalie Portman is NOT a single mother!

We're sure you'll probably continue to try to justify your comments by claiming you were talking about "economic realities" and "statistics," but that doesn't change the fact that your approach to the discussion was in seriously poor taste.

Thoughts???

"THE KID ON 4CHAN.ORG IS A LIEN FUCKER HE DIDNT HACK SHIT!!!!"

"Sorry everyone. My Facebook Page and Twitter account has been hacked and we are cleaning it up."

Hopefully the hacker will leave her alone now.

SO immature!

Dear Arkansas, THIS Sucks!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay Gay

arkansas-school-district-board-member-posts-horrific-anti-gay-rant-on-his-facebook-profile

This is absolutely disgusting.

Clint McCance, a board member of the Midland school district of Arkansas, has caused an uproar for posting a bigoted and hate-fueled anti-gay rant on his Facebook profile encouraging more "queers" and "fags" to commit suicide!

While people all over the country were wearing purple last week in support of LGBT, McCance chose to write the following message:

"Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE."

Worse yet, he received positive feedback from various people!

However, when one commented "Because hatred is always right," McCance responded:

"No because being a fag doesn't give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that shit to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother me if they keep it to thereselves. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it."

He also responded to another comment:

"I would disown my kids they were gay. They will not be welcome at my home or in my vicinity. I will absolutely run them off. Of course my kids will know better. My kids will have solid christian beliefs. See it infects everyone."

Completely sickening.

We'll refrain from responding to any of the nonsense written in his comments, because it's nothing but hateful garbage with no rhyme, reason, or logical thought behind it. We see no "solid christian beliefs" anywhere near that kind of thought-process.

And this is someone who participates in actively oversees what kind of education the youth of his area have!

HRC President Joe Solmonese issued the following statement on the matter:

"Clint McCance has put a face on the hate that devastates our young people. McCance shouldn't be allowed near children, let alone managing their education. We call for his immediate resignation from the school board."

Agreed 100%!

Enough young people have lost their lives because of this kind of toxic and mindless hate!

We hope that administrators in his school district realize the severity of his comments and take proper action to rectify the already damaging situation.

Thoughts??
