Paris Hilton Apologizes Through GLAAD For Homophobic Audio

Filed under: Gay Gay GayParis Hilton

Paris Hilton's conversation in the back of an NYC cab was recently taken way out of context after the driver recorded it and circulated a small, offensive fraction of the audio around the web.

She wants her fans and the world to know the truth though, which is that she was NOT intentionally bashing the gay community, but rather talking about a very specific friend in Spain who has AIDS and continues to have unprotected sex.

The reality star and socialite has already called the recording and subsequent media reports "beyond lame", but is taking the next appropriate step and has issued a heartfelt apology.

Despite the negative audio snippet, Paris insists that she is and "always will be a huge supporter of the gay community." Read the entire statement she gave to GLAAD … AFTER THE JUMP!

Tracy Morgan's Homophobic Rant Getting Parodied On 30 Rock

tracy morgan drama to be parodied on 30 rock

We can definitely see the humor in this…although we wish Tracy would come off as a bit more sincere with his apologies!

Back in June, we were NOT impressed when Tracy Morgan made the ill-advised decision to go on a homophobic rant during a live show.

Fortunately, he made a strong effort to show his remorse, and we were able to forgive him…although we weren't thrilled when he sorta backtracked on his apology.

Now, we're hearing that Tracy's controversy will make its way into a storyline on 30 Rock this season.

Here's what MSNBC's Thomas Roberts had to say about it:

Tracy Morgan has really made an effort to make amends with the gay community after he made some pretty hateful and controversial homophobic statements at a comedy show in Nashville earlier this month.

Well, it's been a few weeks and Tracy returned to the comedy scene by performing a new stand-up routine at Caroline's Comedy Club in New York Saturday night.

During his set, Tracy addressed the controversy, saying:

Joan Rivers Does NOT Think Tracy Morgan Should Have Apologized For Anti-Gay Rant

tracy morgan and joan rivers

Oh, Joan!

Last week, Tracy Morgan went on a homophobic rant during a live show in Nashville, TN, and he has been apologizing A LOT ever since.

Now, Joan Rivers has decided to speak up against Tracy for his publicist's decision to apologize:

"He shouldn’t apologize. Gay fans? What are they doing seeing him anyhow? Why aren’t they watching me and Kathy Griffin? What are they doing at this show? He’s lost his gay fan.'"

“If they can actually get Tracy Morgan to be coherent and talk against homophobia even if he doesn’t mean it, I think that’d be all right, because there are people even dumber than Tracy Morgan, who look up to Tracy Morgan as an ignorant role model."

"I’ll tell you, the biggest crime of all is that Tracy Morgan isn’t funny. You know what he should be apologizing for? For charging $86 to see him."

We're gonna have to disagree, Joan. We're pleased that he's making the effort, and as we said before, we think it's great that he's going to such lengths to make things right.

Do U agree with Joan? Should Tracy NOT have apologized?
