Cheyenne Jackson And Wanda Sykes Respond To Tracy Morgan's Anti-Gay Tirade!

cheyenne-jackson-and-wanda-sykes-respond-to-tracy-morgans-anti-gay-tirade

And they make Tina Fey look as though she went easy on him!

Tracy Morgan's 30 Rock co-star, Cheyenne Jackson, and his Rio co-star, Wanda Sykes, have lashed out out at the actor's HOrrific, unacceptable comments against the LGBT community during a stand-up set in Nashville earlier in the month, and as homosexuals themselves, they are understandably not too pleased with his shocking displays of ignorance and hatred!

Jackson says in a statement:

"I am disgusted and appalled by Tracy Morgan's homophobic rant. The devastating repercussions of hate-filled language manifest in very real ways for today's LGBTQ youth. I've known Tracy for two years, spent many long hours with him on set, and I want to believe that this behavior is not at the core of who he is. I'm incredibly disappointed by his actions, and hope that his apology is sincere."

Meanwhile, Sykes took to her Twitter to discuss the situation, and writes:

Hey, just back from family road trip. Ok, Tracy Morgan. Good thing I was busy because it would have been ugly, name calling. Pt. 1

Had time to think. Tracy is just a dumb comic. I fault the TN lawmakers. They've created an anti-gay environment. Pt2

Don't believe Tracy would be so ignorant in LA, because we have a mayor, a city council,and police chief who believes we are all equal. Pt3

I do believe in free speech, but for a youth in TN or any other numerous place, Tracy just yelled, "Fire," in a crowded theater.

Ok, piss'd reading, "I don't want 2 live n a world where Tracy can't say…" I Do! U Keep the world, just break me off an evolved country.

Tracy has the right to say whatever he wants to say, just like we have the right to say, not acceptable. WE as a country. We used to picnic to watch public hangings, but WE figured out, that was some sick shit. No, society does effect the comedy stage, that's why you don't see anymore white comics in blackface. And it's up to us if we laugh or walk out. This isn't about comedy. What Tracy said is dangerous. We r just trying to protect our kids. Peace and love!

Personally, we think the only person that is responsible for Tracy Morgan's behavior is Tracy Morgan, and we sincerely hope that he's taken all of these comments into consideration LONG and HARD.

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

Wanda is right, this is NOT about comedy - it's DANGEROUS, and WRONG, and nobody should have to be subjected to that kind of hatred!

What do U think?? Do U agree with Cheyenne and/or Wanda??

Tina Fey And NBC Entertainment Chief Respond To Tracy Morgan's 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.

Russell Crowe Lashes Out Against Circumcision On Twitter

Filed under: Mel GibsonRussell CroweTwitterFitness

Russell Crowe hates circumcision

Circumcision is turning into a hot topic these days!

In the past few months, we've written about a group trying to ban the nipping of the foreskin in San Francisco, but the crusade against the "genital mutilation" has recently gained a famous ally — Russell Crowe.

The actor went on a tweeting tirade against the "barbaric" ritual, writing:

"Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that God requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect."

"I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats, but stop cutting your babies."

His words created quite a stir with some of his followers, but he refused to back down for voicing his opinions in the public forum, tweeting:

"I will always stand for the perfection of babies. I will always believe in God, not man's interpretation of what God requires. Last of it, if you feel it is your right to cut things off your babies please unfollow and f**k off; I'll take attentive parenting over barbarism."

Wow! He's pretty serious about this! Note to any circumcised gentlemen out there: Don't change next to Russell Crowe in the locker room! Things might get violent. LOLz!

Realizing he may have offended the entire Jewish community, among others, he recently apologized and wrote:

"I have a deep and abiding love for all people of all nationalities. I'm very sorry that I have said things on here that have caused distress. My personal beliefs aside I realize that some will interpret this debate as me mocking the rituals and traditions of others. I am very sorry."

It's no Mel Gibson incident, but circumcision becomes a touchy subject after attacking a specific religion and its rituals…or their "funny little hats". However, it's just his opinion and he's certainly entitled to share it on the internet for the entire world to see if he wants to.

As far as our opinion on circumcision, there doesn't seem to be any negative effects one way or the other, so we'll leave this debate up to the parents!

Oksana Says She Didn't Release The Tapes!

Filed under: Legal MattersMel Gibson

wenn2814180og.jpg

Hmmm.

Oksana Grigorieva reiterated over the weekend that she was not the one that released the tapes of Mel Gibson's racist tirades and she doesn't know who did.

She even said that "it's terrible" that they were released!

But Mel and his team aren't believing her and his lawyers filed a contempt motion against Oksana because they think she leaked the tapes.

Who do U believe?

New Details! Jonathan Rhys Meyers Banned From Airline After Drunken Racist Tirade

wenn5474799jrm.jpg

Yikes!

Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was banned from flying United after throwing back too many drinks, which prompted him to drop the "N" word at the airline workers!

He was drinking vodka and the flight was before 7AM!

This isn't the first time he's behaved badly after boozing. He was arrested for being drunk and in breach of peace back in 2007 in Dublin only 7 months after his second stint in rehab.

And in June 2009 he allegedly attacked staff at a bar in Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport just after he got out of rehab a THIRD time!

Sounds like someone needs yet another trip to rehab!
