Chris Rock defends Free Speech, but not Tracy Morgan's Actions

Earlier, Chris Rock Tweeted this

 GLAAD responded by saying, "Language about stabbing kids for being gay isn't 'foul.' It's dangerous."

Then hours later, Chris tried to clarify his first Tweet.
  Here's the complete statement from his website:

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 without getting my ass kicked.
I do see what Chris is saying about free speech and the things parents say, I mean, the things my Grandmama used to say; but it is still not okay. With the bullying and hateful actions towards LGBT teens, especially to LGBT teens of color, Tracy's actions are completely unacceptable.

We are free to say what we want to say, but we are still responsible for what comes out our mouths. Tracy needs to understand that his rant has impact and unfortunately, dangerous consequences.

So Chris, be a friend to Tracy and chew him out for this mess.
