Following is a press statement PFLAG has issued regarding Tracy Morgan's homophobic rant during a performance in Nashville the other night:

WASHINGTON – PFLAG National (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) - the nation's largest grassroots-based family organization for families, friends and allies of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people – has issued the following statement following Tracy Morgan's anti-gay remarks during a performance in Nashville, TN.

“At a time when bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth is at an all-time high - when kids are being assaulted, are dying - to joke about committing violence against a child is outrageous and reprehensible. As a celebrity, Mr. Morgan needs to understand that his words have power; inciting violence against gay and lesbian kids in the name of comedy – stating that he would stab his own son to death if he was gay – is absolutely unconscionable. A simple apology is not enough – Mr. Morgan must take meaningful action to prove the sincerity of that apology,” said Jody Huckaby, Executive Director of PFLAG National.

PFLAG National is committed to the civil rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people, providing support, education and advocacy. Founded in 1973 by mothers and fathers, PFLAG has more than 200,000 members and supporters in more than 250 chapters throughout the United States. To learn more, please visit

From reading what he said, his apology means nothing. That's not a joke. That's a threat. And it literally made me sick.

Thankfully his three boys are all more-or-less adults now (20, 24, 25) otherwise child protection services should have been called to watch this family. He would stab his son with a knife if he turned out to be gay? What a hateful soul this man has, and should not be a father. He did so much damage, especially in a state where local protections were just removed and kids in school can't say the word "gay". Shame on him.
