T.I. Has A Point



In the new issue of Vibe, T.I.–a supporter of gay rights–said that they’re too sensitive sometimes. I guess Glee won’t be covering “Whatever You Like.” Per TMZ:

T.I. thinks gays need to get over themselves … at least the ones who try and muzzle people from telling harmless jokes. T.I. was discussing gay rights with Vibe magazine — an issue he says he supports — and then mentioned Tracy Morgan’s controversial comments earlier this year: “Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy say during a stand-up was, ‘C’mon man, I think gay people are too sensitive. If you can take a d**k, you can take a joke.’ [Cracks up laughing.] That s**t was funny to me. And it’s kind of true.” Then T.I. unloaded … talking about oversensitivity in the gay community, which he believes betrays the First Amendment which guarantees freedom of speech. “They’re like,‘If you have an opinion against us, we’re gonna shut you down.’ … That’s not American. If you’re gay you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you’re against it you should have the right to be against it in peace.”

Everything T.I. said makes absolutely perfect sense, so props to him. If he had this kind of clarity with his own life decisions, he’d probably have spent a lot less of his life in jail and halfway houses. If he had this kind of clarity with his vision, he’d have spent a lot less of his life in Tiny.
