Louis C.K.: Did Gays Lose An Opportunity By Attacking Tracy Morgan’s “Stab My Gay Son” Joke?

Tracy Morgan said something wrong, evil, cruel, ignorant and hilarious. He was on a comedy stage, not a pulpit. It is clear to anyone with an ability to reason and understand people that he didn’t mean a word of what he said. He was fucking around. I think the opportunity that was lost was for the gay community to ask Tracy, ‘Why did you say that?’ and ‘What was your dad like?’ and ‘What is being a man mean to you?’ you know what I mean? It could have been a starting point of a conversation that might have actually made a difference in how people feel about homophobia.”

– Comedian Louis C.K. questions the gay community’s response to Tracy Morgan’s stand-up routine in which he said he would stab his gay son.
