Comedian-actor Chris Rock has defended the controversial comments made by fellow comic actor Tracy Morgan via Twitter, saying "I don't know about you, but I don't want to live in world where Tracy Morgan cant say foul inappropriate shit."
Morgan made derogatory comments about gay people during his stand-up act on June 3, calling gay people "mistakes" and joking that he would stab his son if he came out as gay.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation swiftly responded with a statement, saying, "Language about stabbing kids for being gay isn't 'foul.' It's dangerous."
