Tracy Morgan might have just ruined 30 Rock for me (and several others as well.)

In Tennessee (in the news lately for the Don’t Say Gay and other anti LGBT policies) it is reported that Mr. Morgan went on a tirade during a comedy performance… a homophobic violent offensive tirade.

Here are a few things the comedian reportedly said according to eye witness Kevin Rogers.

-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.

Stunning.

Tracy Morgan plays Tracy Jordan on the NBC show 30 Rock alongside actress Tina Fey who is notoriously pro-LGBT rights. After an outpouring of dismay Mr. Morgan’s PR machine had this to say: “I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others…”

His choice of words? Not a hateful person?

Only time will tell if his rant affects his working relationship with Tina Fey, 30 Rock, or NBC. As for me, I skipped the 30 Rock rerun last night and rewatched a Modern Family episode instead.

Alec Baldwin’s resonspe via Twitter, “Oh, that Tracy.”

Tina Fey was a bit more articulate: 

“The violent imagery of Tracy’s rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community. {the rant} doesn’t line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person, I hope for his sake that Tracy’s apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian coworkers on 30 Rock, without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket.”
