All-Star comic Louis C.K. defended the recent homophobic stand-up bit performed by Tracy Morgan over Twitter today. He argued that Morgan “said something wrong, evil, cruel, ignorant and hilarious. He was on a comedy stage, not a pulpit.”
He then went on to further argue that he wasn’t offended and that “it’s clear to anyone with an ability to reason and understand people that he didn’t mean a word of what he said. He was fucking around.”
Essentially, C.K. argued that Morgan did no wrong as he was just doing comedy. Louis, who frequently has material that could very easily be deemed offensive, obviously feels that in the name of comedy and humor there’s nothing wrong with being offensive.
Days before C.K. came to his defense, Morgan had apologized profusely through official statement and interviews and has pledged to attend gay pride rallies.
