The Campaign To Make Tracy Jordan Gay
Tina Fey thinks she has the solution to Tracy Morgan's homophobic PR nightmare: make Tracy Jordan gay.
The Huffington Post reports on an upcoming storyline that we can expect to see in the new season of 30 Rock:
"Well, you know how a lot of their episodes mirror their lives ... They've incorporated [Morgan's rant] into the Tracy Jordan storyline," MSNBC's Thomas Roberts, who makes a cameo appearance on the show, said of a forthcoming episode. "Liz Lemon writes Tracy's apology on the show and says he's not a homophobe, he's an idiot. That offends idiots, so while NBC is being picketed by the LBGT community, now it's also being picketed by idiots led by Denise Richards. She's the leader of the idiots."
Meanwhile, Towleroad points out the perfect timing of sketch group The Battery Down's latest release in which they address "The Tracy Dilemma." Their solution? Make his character on "30 Rock" gay.
Do you believe there even is a "Tracy Dilemma"? And if there is, can it be solved by changing his long-running character's sexuality?
Goodness, what would Sherri Shepherd say?
