And just like that, the line between Tracy Morgan and Tracy Jordan grows that much dimmer. At a show last week, Tracy apparently went off his meds routine to talk about how he thinks being gay is a choice and that he would stab his son in the head if he were gay, probably because Charlie Sheen already stole all the good drug addict jokes.
Kevin Rogers attended Morgan’s standup show last Friday and reported on his Facebook page that Morgan let loose a viciously homophobic rant that, as far as he could tell, was a dead serious attack on gay men and women. Rogers, who is gay, wrote:
I figured at some point the gay jokes would fly and I’m well prepared for a good ribbing of straight gay humor. I have very thick skin when it comes to humor; I can dish and I can take. What I can’t take is when Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay s*it was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that “Born this Way” is bulls*it, gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because “God don’t make no mistakes” (referring to God not making someone gay cause that would be a mistake). He said if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not [he mimicked a gay, high pitched voice] or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death.

Normally, I would be one of many calling for Tracy to be given a swift kick in the balls, but then I remembered that (A) you can’t take someone seriously when they’re high on crystal meth, and (B) Tracy Morgan really shouldn’t be bitching about other people being effeminate when he’s constantly taking his shirt off for no discernible reason. That being said, just to give him a shot in hell, I’ll gladly extend to him the Dan Savage choicer challenge: If he can suck my dick while maintaining a diamond-cutting erection, than I’ll concede that I chose to be gay. The balls in your mouth court, Tracy.
UPDATE: Tracy Morgan issued a statement through his representative:
“I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.”
