(Newser) – Tracy Morgan is facing serious heat for a violently homophobic diatribe he allegedly made at a stand-up show last Friday. According to an audience member’s account of the rant, the comedian said that if his son was gay, he’d stab him to death. For years, Morgan has said sexuality is a choice; at the show, he said that was true because “God don’t make no mistakes.” He's apparently also no fan of Lady Gaga's "Born this Way" either, and allegedly said gay teens need to stop whining about bullying. Gay rights groups including Truth Wins Out are demanding an apology, Jezebel reports. Click to read that audience member's rundown of the night.
