A week after Tracy had to apologize profusely to the LGBT community for the anti-gay rants he passed off as jokes in Nashville earlier this month, he’s done it again. This time, the mentally disabled were targeted during Tracy’s show in New York City. We’re just going to repeat the “jokes” he cracked verbatim. He told the assembled audience, “Don’t ever mess with women who have retarded kids. Them young retarded males is strong. They’re strong like chimps.”
Don’t face-palm just yet, there’s more. Tracy went on to relate a story of an apparent romance he had as a teenager with a girl who he called “a cripple,” who had a prosthetic arm, a mechanical larynx and a portable dialysis machine. The irony is that the 30 Rock-er could have just shut up for once. He actually told the audience earlier in the show that he wanted to tell them something but he couldn’t explaining, “I can’t. I just got out of controversy man. This is diabolical.” But obviously, he couldn’t resist. The way he’s going, almost everyone is going to be out to kick him in the gluteus maximus. He’s obviously already has apologies scripted out for every possible community, because he’s going to offend them all.

Ugh. Really Tracy Morgan? The comedian apparently went on a homophobic tirade at a stand up show on June 3rd in Nashville. According to Kevin Rogers, a fan in attendance at the 30 Rock star’s show whose Facebook on the show went viral, Tracy said things like, “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 f**king man. He took time to visit the bullsh*t of this bullying stuff and informed us that the gays needed to quit being p*ssies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying.”
Other comments included threatening to stab his son with a knife if he came out as gay and told him in a high-pitched voice, and insisted he “didn’t f**king care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a f**king dick up their ass.. they can take a f**king joke.”
GLAAD has condemned his comments, and Tracy just issued a statement apologizing. “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. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.”
While we’re glad he’s responded and addressed his hateful remarks, we’re not quite sure it’s enough. Do you think Tracy truly regrets his rant, or is he just offering up lip service?
Apart from a few misses, we generally love Anne Hathaway’s (photos) sense of style, and her outfit at the L.A premiere for Rio on Sunday is probably going down as our favorite. Anne’s purple fringed Gucci dress and sexy gladiatrix stilettos have us drooling. We don’t exactly get the hipster glasses but she’s lovely enough to pull them off. But we’re counting on you to tell us whether we need to wear glasses for thinking they look good.
We’re also loving Will.I.Am‘s kicky sneakers with the inferno design. But more than anything else, we’re very grateful that Rodrigo Santoro showed up looking as drop-dead sexy as ever. Check out our gallery below for the low-down of celebrities who showed up for the event.
