Tracy Morgan is known for saying outrageous things that may border on crazy. But it seems he's probably crossed the line this time. Has he finally pulled a Kramer?
That phrase refers to Michael Richards who, a few years back, got loony with a heckler and shouted him down with racial slurs that were supposed to be a part of his act, but probably revealed his true thoughts about black people instead. He hasn't walked on to a stage since.
Morgan is being roasted over the spit for recent remarks he made in his own act about his feelings for homosexuals, among them how he would feel if he found out his son was gay. And it didn't sound like a joke.
The remarks are too shocking to reprint here, but not for some of the gay advocate sites who are now up in arms over the comedy routine the 30 Rock star gave on June 4 in Nashville. Don't worry, Google's got it if you can stomach it.
Tracy Morgan has been a loose cannon for years and seems to get away with it because he can cloak it in his comedic "genius." But no less an icon than Kramer himself, loved by millions, is down in the dust because of some poorly timed jokes. It proves that an audience's patience eventually wears thin when you run out of truly funny things to say and start going mean.
Time to exit, stage left, Tracy. For good.
