Kevin Rogers, a gay dude in the audience of a Tracy Morgan show in Nashville last week, is now the hero of the gay community because he shined a light on the comedian’s secret plot to wipe all gays from the face of the Earth. Chicago Pride reports:
A man who was in the audience at a recent Tracy Morgan show in Nashville said that the well-known comedian and 30 Rock actor went berserk when talking about how he’d treat a gay son: ‘I’d kill him.’ Audience member Kevin Rogers, who is gay, wrote about the June 3 show on Facebook: “I’ve been a big fan of his since his days at SNL. The show was your typical hysterical [expletive-laden] humor… I have to say it was hilarious and well worth at least 40% of the $86 we spent per ticket to see him. I figured at some point the gay jokes would fly and I’m well prepared for a good ribbing of straight gay humor,” Rogers wrote. However, Rogers said that this didn’t feel like humor; Morgan’s whole demeanor changed when he started in on the gay jokes and that he seemed “truly filled with hate against us.” “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,” Rogers wrote. “Tracy then said he didn’t fucking care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a [expletive] dick up their ass… they can take a [expletive] joke. Rogers said that of the 2,000 people in the audience at the Rhyman Auditorium, about a dozen people walked out. According to Rogers, Morgan continued his homophobic rant saying Barack Obama needed to ‘man up’ and stop speaking out for gay rights.
And as expected, a gay right group wants a “full explanation and apology”. I know! This must have been really bad, because they never do that!
Truth Wins Out Social Media Director Evan Hurst said that if these allegations are true, Morgan went too far. “Comedians have long pushed the envelope in tackling controversial subjects,” he said. “Indeed, it’s part of their job description, and good comedians are able to do this and keep everybody laughing at the same time. However, abject hatred directed at vulnerable kids is not comedy, by anyone’s definition. If these reports are true, we expect a full explanation and apology.” The group also called on 30 Rock producer and star Tina Fey, who is a gay rights ally, to ‘forthrightly condemn any sort of anti-gay hatred’.
Oh, Jesus. Here we go. Ok, look gays, let’s put our feathered pens and scented stationary down and put our logic caps on for a second. What’s more probable, that Tracy Morgan would stab his own son to death for being gay or that he was just telling a fucking joke? No, you’re right. He must want to kill all gay people including his own flesh and blood because he said it live on stage during a comedy show. Here’s the thing, if you pay to go see a comedy show and don’t expect to get a offended at least once, maybe your money would be better spent elsewhere. Like maybe a ticket to a unicorn farm where people don’t have differing opinions and straight and gay people skip hand and hand and slide down rainbows of acceptance and happiness. Or you can look up Reality Land on Google Maps. If your asshole tightened up, I’d say relax it and chill the hell out. But, really, who are we kidding? We all know that can’t happen.
Note: Did anybody else pick up on the fact the gay guy said, ” I’m well prepared for a good ribbing”? Haha, I see what you did there gay guy!
