Tracy Morgan Cancels Mississippi Show Over Anti-LGBT Law
Discrimination is no laughing matter.
Tracy Morgan canceled his stand-up comedy show in Tunica, Mississippi on Tuesday night in protest of the recently passed “Religious Accommodations Act,” which allows businesses to deny service to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender customers.
In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, Tracy’s rep said he didn’t take the decision to pull out of the show lightly.
Tracy did not make this decision lightly. He very much looks forward to rescheduling his tour dates in the area after the ‘Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act’ is either repealed or heavily amended.
In 2011, Tracy Morgan was blasted for homophobic jokes he made during his stand-up set in Nashville, Tennessee, where he stated, “I don’t “f**king care if I piss off some gays, because if they can take a f**king d**k up their a**…they can take a f**king joke.”
It’s great to see his change of heart.
