Rosie O’Donnell says Tracy Morgan is not homophobic

HollywoodNews.com: Tracy Morgan, who “joked” to an audience in June that he would kill his son if he came out as gay, appeared on The Rosie Show this week and said: “If my son was gay, I wouldn’t be mad at him — I’d ask him to decorate the house.”

Tracy, one of the stars of NBC’s 30 Rock, endured a public relations nightmare when his anti-gay stand-up material in that Nashville show was made public by a gay man in the audience.

He did all the apologies, met with homeless LGBT youth, came out in support of gay marriage and the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

But then in an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman a few weeks ago, he had a little bit of amnesia: “I don’t remember exactly what I said that night. I’ve done 50 shows since. Whatever I said it must have offended [audience member Kevin Rogers], and then he tweeted it out. And then I had to deal.”

For the record, Morgan said he’d “pull out a knife and stab” his son if he were gay.

He told Rosie O’Donnell on Monday night: “I want to make this place a little bit better than it was when I got here.”

Rosie made clear that she stands by Morgan telling the former SNL star: “I know you’re not homophobic, because News Flash! I’m a lesbian.”

Sorry Rosie, I’m still not convinced.
