Access Hollywood reports on Tracy Morgan's anti-gay "comedy" slurs
On June 10, Access Hollywood (on many affiliated stations, like NBC Washington) reported on the “apology” by stand-up comedian Tracy Morgan for obviously homophobic remarks made at the Ryman auditorium in Nashville on June 3. The link is here. They were pretty bad. The incident spread after a Facebook posting by Kevin Rogers (not sure which Kevin, but the post appears on this Wall thread link). That shows again how social media, as well as more conventional self-publishing, can expose major gaffes very quickly and spread to everyone.
