Quote of the Day
"Tracy’s remarks today have the power to reach millions with a message that gay and transgender youth should be met with support from families -- not rejection or violence. In a state like Tennessee where anti-gay laws continue to be passed, it’s now more important than ever for allies like Tracy to speak out and let Tennesseans know that homophobia has no place on or off the stage."
-- GLAAD Senior Director of Programs Herndon Graddick at an official press conference (in case you didn't think several had already taken place) in which Tracy Morgan returned to the scene of the crime and very officially apologized to "everyone in every community who were offended" at his one stupid and over-the-top crack about a hypothetical situation involving his apparently not-really-gay son.
And thus, GLAAD exacts its pound of flesh and, hey, gains a slightly scared shitless "ally" in the process.
Finally, our long national nightmare is over.
