30 Mock

We could do this all day every day.

The Root: Tracy Morgan Under Fire Again for Comments About Mentally Disabled/6.29.11

Ten bucks says he doesn't apologize this time, which will start a big unnecessary debate about what you can and can't get away with saying -- who you're allowed to offend in our culture and who you're not. Which is part of the point I made about stand-up comics at the very beginning of the last go-round.

[...] he told the crowd not to "mess with women who have retarded kids." "Them young retarded males is strong," he said. "They're strong like chimps."

Now that's just fucking funny.

Sol Rosenberg said...

Yes I was very hurt by his words.

Nathan said...

Suggested apology: Oh, c'mon! The retards didn't even get the joke 'til you explained it to 'em!

nancym said...

Heh, that was funny. Seriously, do all comedians have to be Bill Cosby now?

btw, does anybody remember the "Tard Blog"?

"This quote is far too offensive to be excused as comedy."

And this is how comedy dies, with thunderous outrage from self-righteous douchebags who merely want press for their otherwise un-heard of organization.

Benoit from Ottawa said...

It's virtually never the purportedly offended people who complain, but rather self-appointed spokespeople.

The real reeeeetards, y'know.

Isn't Tracy Morgan developmentally disabled anyway? Why is he getting hammered on for dissing one of his own? Sorry, I just never found him funny. I really can't get offended by someone I don't respect.
