Chris Rock made a comment before he understood the whole situation. He supported fellow comedian Tracy Morgan who was recently slammed for making homophobic rant during a stand-up gig in Nashville. Morgan had apologized but Rock tweeted, "I dont know about you, but I dont want to live in world where Tracy Morgan cant say foul inappropriate s**t."

Among Morgan's offensive remarks was when he said that his son "better talk to me like a man and not in a gay voice or I'll pull out a knife and stab that little n**ger to death" if he ever comes out as gay. Audience reportedly booed at him and some even walked out of the venue. Few days later Morgan released a statement, admitting that his lines went too far.

Once Rock knew Morgan's remarks, he wrote, "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."

To TRACY MORGAN: If I had a kid so ignorant, ugly and UNFUNNY as you, I hope he would kill himself.
