If you have ever wanted Tracy Morgan to appear at your community theatre or your child's birthday party, now is the time to get him. Just tell Tracy your child is gay or your community theatre is performing And The Played On and Tracy will probably be there before you can hang up the phone. What he said last week is awful and I loved the way Tina Fey and the President of NBC slammed him for his rant, but Tracy is doing all the right things and saying all the right things and GLAAD is certainly ready to forgive him and have called him an ally.
Tracy spoke to Marc Malkin and said that he was bullied as a kid because his father had AIDS, which he died of in 1987. He also said he learned about homophobia at that time because people thought his dad was gay. Tracy is going to film a PSA in Tennessee which was the site of his rant.
Now, on to the bad news Tracy. He still has not apologized for the rants he made against women. What he said about gays was really bad, but he went even further when it came to the treatment of women. I have not seen anything about that in the press though.
