T.I. has ignited a whole lotta controversy with his recent statements in a Vibe Magazine interview.
When the conversation turned to homophobia, T.I. defended Tracy Morgan’s “If my child was gay, I’d stab him to death” rant from earlier this year, and then defended an individuals right to hate Gay people!
Not content with expressing his admiration for the above-mentioned joke, T.I. gave his stamp of approval to another of Morgan’s controversial jokes.
“Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy say during a stand-up was, ‘C’mon man, I think gay people are too sensitive. If you can take a d**k, you can take a joke.’ [Cracks up laughing.] That sh*t was funny to me. And it’s kind of true.”
Later, he asserted that those annoying Gay rights organizations like GLAAD are un-American for coming down hard on famous people who make homophobic remarks in the press.
“They’re like, ‘If you have an opinion against us, we’re gonna shut you down.’ … That’s not American. If you’re gay you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you’re against it you should have the right to be against it in peace.”
