Gay Rights Groups to Morgan

We DEMAND Apology

6/10/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The largest gay rights groups in the country are condemning Tracy Morgan's homophobic stand-up act in Nashville ... insisting, "anti-gay violence is not something to joke about."

TMZ spoke with Jarrett Barrios -- the President of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- who tells us the organization is investigating the situation, and if the reports are true, "We call on him to remove these violently anti-gay remarks from his show and send a strong message that anti-gay violence is not something to joke about."

The Human Rights Campaign is equally upset -- telling us, "Hateful remarks that mock youth suicides and the very real emotional and sometimes physical bullying LGBT kids face on a daily basis have no place in a comedy routine.”

The group adds, "If these allegations are true, Tracy Morgan must immediately accept responsibility and apologize.”

GlADD should also apologize for attacking and undermining values that sustain a healthy society.
By the way,Jon had it correct about the double standard...Kathy Griffin is constantly using Her"humor' to attack and denigrade traditional America.But it serves GLADD's purposes just like the Nazi propaganda demonized the Jews.
Gay activists are demonizing anyone who doesn't agree with them!

looks like everyone agrees - it's his thing let him do what he wants in life. Who are these GLAAD people anyway demanding someone to do as they see fit - the new nazi SS, but politically correct?

Any bets on whether they give Gloria Allred a call? They should be used to being butthurt.

I am so damn sick and tired of these cry babies always slinging snot because someone hurt their switchy feelings. Damn. Do something useful with your life. Start a fund and find a way to grow some balls and put a rod in that spine.

Black, white, and every other color makes jokes all the time about the color and we laugh, because it is COMEDY. You are going to start a f'king war that you will not win if you don't just shut the hell up.

All this time you are bitching, you could be doing whatever it is you do to yourself. I am really afraid for you fa....gays. People will now thrust their anger and dislike at gay people they meet on the street, and that is just so wrong.

Shut the hell up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Dam, my greatgrand babies don't cry that dam much. I am sick of hearing about your lifestyle which has to be unhealthy and smelly.

At a time when we should be watching our political backs, we are going to get blindsided because of GROWN SWITCHERS CRYING OUT FOR EVERYONE TO LOVE THEM. SHUT UP AND BE TOLERATED.

I pray for the gays that are decent to oppose all this chit and tell your fellow sisters to stop this nonsense. There has to be more normal people in the world than your group so please, please, stay your distance, do you nasty thing, and leave us the hell alone.

Before the last couple of months, I have never had anything to say about you people. As a so called color minority, I know the importance of being treated as individuals, but you all are bringing all this on yourselves and it needs to stop. Sick of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh F@ck Off GLAAD! You are the primary reason for new resentment against alternative lifestyles. Stop being a bunch of cry babies. Every time someone says something you don't like you should not get an apology.

I don't go to my boss and demand an apology when my feelings are hurt.

Grow up GLAAD and for that matter the rest of the super-sensitive (of all groups) need to just grown the f@ck up and stop being a bunch of children.

We are turning into a generation of spineless ME's. Its all about Me, look at Me, take care of Me, I am hurting so love Meeeeee!!!!!

Special interest groups hurt the causes they attempt to protect.

@Jon Exactly, Jon! Where is GLAAD (by the way, they're really SAD) when that hateful whore, Kathy Griffin, is bashing and slashing anyone who isn't gay, a whore, deviant, etc.?!

TRACY: DO NOT APOLOGIZE FOR ANYTHING, EXCEPT...you may want to concede that you might have chosen a word other than "kill". DO NOT PLACATE THESE NUTJOBS. Someone has to draw the line. My gods, it's getting effing ridiculous! Are we gonna let the minority rule?! I think not!

TRACY: Take a stand, brother! You bend over for these nazis and you're dooming your own profession! PA-LEASE, for the love of the gods, continue making The Majority laugh and screw the nazis (GLAAD, ACLU), etc. who are making everyone else's life miserable!

I normally don't comment on pointless, useless, senseless and illogical issues but I can't stand it any longer. There is a double -standard in this country. If you are gay, black, Muslim, retarded, illiterate, on welfare, or Liberal it is ok to say anthing about anyone at anytime and it is ok, but heaven help us if anyone says ANYTHING about you, while this same group can blast Republicans, christians, religion, creationism and anything else they want to and it is ok. Homosexuality is a learned behavior. It is not normal. It is deviant behavior and a person chooses to engage in that behavior just like someone chooses to be an alcoholic, drug addict, voyeur, pedophile, liar, adulterer, murderer, etc: YOU ARE NOT BORN THAT WAY. No proof, no genetic findings have ever proven this. First Ammendment speech rights are protected for everyone. It disgusts me that Hollywood, the media, and the White House portray this behavior as normal and mainstream. It sickens me that this country is so "politically incorrect" in it's thinking that it condones this type of behavior. Get a grip and get a life people, turn back to God or suffer the consequences
