Recently there has been some controversy over remarks that Tracy Morgan made during a stand-up routine that were quite homophobic.
(from the article linked below): "Among Morgan’s most upsetting comments, according to audience member Kevin Rogers, who relayed Morgan’s rant via a Facebook post, was (Rogers paraphrased) that Morgan said that gays were not “born this way,” and lesbians don’t really like women, they just hate men.
Finally, Morgan made the weirdest statement of the evening. If he found out his son were gay, he would pull out a knife and stab the “little nigga” to death."
There is discussion now on whether or not Tracy has anything to apologize for. Some people seem to be of the opinion that comedians are supposed to push boundaries and therefore anything goes in comedy. Others think there are still lines that you just don't cross, even in comedy.
Where do you all come down on this?
