Unfavorable Punch-Line

In June 2011, while performing in Nashville, Tennessee, funny man Tracy Morgan’s routine was littered with anti-gay sentiment, including when he said he would stab his son if he whined about being bullied and how President Barack Obama should “man up” and stop standing up for gay youth. GLAAD would call for NBC, the station that runs Morgan’s hit show, 30 Rock, to condemn the comedian, and Morgan’s faux pas would even become fodder for an episode of 30 Rock. In his apology to the group, Morgan said that he wasn’t a hateful person and that his comments “went too far” and were “not funny in any context.” Morgan was invited to appear in a PSA for the group, but has yet to do so. (Photo: Andrew H.
