Tracy Morgan

... From Gays to 'Retards'

6/29/2011 6:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tracy Morgan seems hell-bent on offending every minority group he can ... add the mentally and physically disabled to the ever-growing list.

Tracy warned his audience at a performance in New York City this weekend, "Don't ever mess with women who have retarded kids."  The audience groaned, but Tracy didn't stop:  "Them young retarded males is strong.  They're strong like chimps."

But more was yet to come.  Tracy reminisced about a girl he once dated, describing her as "a cripple" with a prosthetic arm, a mechanical larynx and a portable dialysis machine.

You'll recall, earlier this month, Tracy drew fire for another performance, in which he said he would stab his son to death if he spoke in a "gay voice."

Tracy apologized for the comments about gays, but now we gotta ask ...

Why don't we just ban comedy altogether? I can see where this is heading, some poor comedian is going to make a fat joke and get railroaded. If any of Tracy's routine offends you, you have no business in a comedy club. Go to church instead. Pryor and Kinnison must be rolling in their graves

Randomness    

Uh...comedians make fun of people for a living. Their comments are never meant to be taken seriously...like ever. Stop expecting the same level of political correctness you want from your elected officials from a flippin comedian.

a comedian's job is not to shock people it's to make people laugh..so when did that change??

years ago cheap laughs were had by some with jokes about "retarded" and "cripple"
society is smarter now -women can even vote, slavery aboloished etc. if you know what I mean

we have progressed and realize that jokes about physically and mentally challenged people ae not funny-they are thoughtless, insensitive, demeaning and cruel

my brother who is now deceased was what he would call "retarded"
a serious accident when he was a toddler, did serious long term permanent brain damage so that he could never talk, repeated grand mal seizures that ended up causing more brain damage and more that I won't bore you with

there was nothing funny about it at all
no fun when people would stare and whisper and laugh at him because he was different
no fun when people would shout that he should be locked away and kept out of sight etc.

so maybe I'm a bit more sensitive than some
but
knowing the pain and sadness and fear that families of mentally challenged people have to live with
and seeing the individual themselves struggle through their entire lifetime, robbed of the chance to flourish, is not/should not be a source of amusement to an enlightened society

so people defending him- they're not my kind of people

even 20 years ago people would laugh at the loveable drunk- now they see the same person as an alcoholic and understand it to be a disease and there is nothing loveable about alcoholsim

we know better....we do better.....in most cases

That's exactly what I was thinking Gizmo. Are we trying to portray Morgan as an angry black man? Lisa Lampanelli uses f*gs, n*ggas, r*tards, etc. Just recently she went on a blocking spree I guess on Twitter because Queen of Mean couldn't take a few people asking why she got away with it. She even made some nasty comment about that woman that got her face all messed up from that chimp.

Why is Morgan (and by extension Kobe, etc.) all being derided, yet people like her get a pass?

Morgan's an idiot sure, his comedy before wasn't funny, but why are people going after him?

Can the 38% who forgave Tracy possibly be one user who voted really frequently? Is Gino behind this?

LOL America: Get over yourselves! Why is everyone losing their tiny minds over this guy? He is a comedian, after all, not the president.

I have many friends who who are homo, bi and trans sexual as well as a gentleman friend who is a quadrapalegic. All these folks have very thick skins and they would be the first to laugh at these lame but funny jokes. They would also be the first to tell you to F*@ck Off for feeling sorry for them.

~~Peace~~
