Rick Santorum: Gay People Should Stop Being Gay!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

It's a sad sad world out there when men this ignorant and hateful are in positions where they are given a platform to continue spewing this kind of nonsense.

Check out this recent interview with Republican candidate for the Presidential nomination Rick Santorum once again asserts that not only should gay people not be allowed in the military, but they should also just stop being gay altogether (above)!

Oh! It's that simple, isn't it?

How foolish of us to not think of this earlier! We were under the impression that EVERYONE deserved the same kind of equal treatment and ability to live their lives freely and happily!

Just despicable, awful, and deeply, deeply shameful.

Tracy Morgan Issues Public Apology About Homophobic Rant During Comedy Set

Filed under: Gay Gay GayTracy Morgan

He certainly sounds like he is doing everything he can to correct his serious mistake, and we have to give him credit for that!

In light of HOriffic and hateful homophobic remarks he made during a recent stand-up set in Nashville, Tracy Morgan has returned to the city to personal apologize to audience members present that night, as well as gay advocacy groups offended by his words.

Check out his speech, as well as offended audience member Kevin Rogers' words prior to that, at the Nashville Convention Center (above)!

Sounds sincere to us!

We just hope he can continue to learn and grow from this mistake, and use it to help other people who may be affected by similar words and acts of hate and bigotry!

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.
