"30 Rock" star reportedly says he’d kill his son if he were effeminate gay, goes off on homophobic rant

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

UPDATE: He just apologized, in full, completely. I'm surprised. Now, he's done this before. And didn't acknowledge that. But at least he's owned up to this one. Let's see if he bashes gays again in the future, then we'll judge how sincere he is.

UPDATE: The NYT reports that a statement is coming soon from Mr. Morgan. This should be unfulfilling.  I expect it will go something like this: It was a joke, blah blah, taken out of context, blah blah, it was actually pro-gay, blah blah, some of my best friends, blah blah, I even criticized blacks and I am black, blah blah, and I'm sorry if you were offended by my comments (but I'm not sorry for the comments).  Get ready for it.

"30 Rock" star Tracy Morgan, if the account is true, just went off on a homophobic rampage that may doom his role on the show. It was that bad.

Kevin Rogers posted this on Facebook. Morgan has a history of making homophobic comments. And at least one blog is saying it contacted his publicist, who's "no comment" pretty much confirms the story.  Here is Rogers' take on the evening:

What I can't take is when Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay shit was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that "Born this Way" is bullshit, 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 that 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 fucking man. He took time to visit the bullshit of this bullying stuff and informed us that the gays needed to quit being pussies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying. He mentioned that gay was something kids learn from the media and programming, and that bullied kids should just bust some ass and beat those other little fuckers that bully them, not whine about it. 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. He mentioned that Barack Obama needed to man up and quit being all down with this just because he has a wife and two daughters. All of this being followed by thunderous cheer and "You go Tracys". Tracy then said he didn't fucking care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a fucking dick up their ass... they can take a fucking joke.

The sad thing is that none of this rant was a joke. His entire demeanor changed during that portion of the night. He was truly filled with some hate towards us. As far as I could see 10 to 15 people walked out. I had to fight myself to stay seated, but I knew if I got up... he won.
Wow. This isn't just "not funny," as a few blogs have said. It's far more than "not funny." I'm waiting for full confirmation of this story before saying more. But if it's true, 30 Rock is in serious trouble.
