Chris Rock came to the defense of Tracy Morgan after news emerged that the “30 Rock” star went on a violent homophobic rant while performing in Nashville.

Morgan later apologized for his inappropriate remarks, which included him saying he’d “stab” his son if his child were gay. Still, Rock tweeted his support for Morgan: “I dont know about you, but I dont want to live in world where Tracy Morgan cant say foul inappropriate s**t.” But now Rock has changed his stance.

“The Motherf**ker With the Hat” star has since written: “Tracy morgan is a tad off we all know that so when tracy says something i usually don’t take it anymore serious than i would a statement from gary busey or flavor flav .when i first heard the statement i thought it was offensive but it also reminded me of my father saying ill kill you if you ever bring home a white girl but after reading everything tracy said . wow i get it that shit wasn’t called for and i don’t support it at all. now can i please go to the tony awards [tonight] without getting my a** kicked.” What do you think of Rock’s statement?
