After Tracy Morgan’s anti-born this way anthem made its way around the Internet, part of me thought that he would tell everyone to get fucked and the other part of me figured that his publicist would put a filter over his mouth and force him to the front of the stage to apologize. Seems like the latter won out, because here’s the statement Tracy issued to the New York Times this morning.
“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.”
Does this mean that the Westboro Baptist Church is going to take back their invitation for Tracy Morgan to become their official mascot? (Wait, do they hate black straight people too?)
Tina Fey said that her daughter writes a lot of Tracy Jordan’s lines in 30 Rock. It’s become clear that the only solution to this mess is that from now Tina Fey’s daughter should write ALL of Tracy Morgan’s words.
