Stories are circulating about Tracy Morgan’s homophobic rant at a Nashville gig. Now thanks to an audience member we know exactly what Tracy said, and it’ll absolutely shock you.
Morgan was performing in front of a packed house at Nashville’s hallowed Ryman Auditorium and in the middle of his show he launched into an extended tirade against homosexuals.
Tracy Morgan’s feelings about homosexuality aren’t exactly a secret. In 2009 people walked out of his Carnegie Hall performance in disgust after he claimed that being gay was a choice and disparaged the gay community. But he went beyond the pale this week in Nashville.
Kevin Rogers, who was in attendance, posted a public note on Facebook detailing at length the hateful language used by Morgan. What did the comic say? After laying out the usual lines about homosexuality being a choice, he said “god don’t make no mistakes” and said that “all this gay stuff is bullsh*t.”
What does he think about lesbians? “There is no way a woman could love and have sexual desire for another woman, that’s just a woman pretending because she hates a [expletive] man.”
And then he got even more honest: “If my son were gay he better come home and talk to me like a man and not [like a homosexual--Morgan mimicked a feminine voice] or I’d pull out a knife and stab that little N***** to death.”
The worst thing about the 30 Rock star’s rant? It was greeted with cheers and applause from many in the audience.
Just goes to show that Tennessee is just as nasty and bigoted as Tracy Morgan is.
