Nashville, TN, United States (Celebrity News Service) - Liz Lemon can't save him from this one. "30 Rock" star Tracy Morgan allegedly went on an anti-gay tirade at a recent comedy show. During his stand-up, he mocked gay bullying and President Obama's support of the LGBT community, and even said he'd kill his own son if he were gay.

Morgan took the stage at the Ryman Auditorium here last week and reportedly slammed the gay community, saying, "Gays need to quit being p--sies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying."

Morgan also said that being gay is a choice and that "Born This Way" is "bullsh--," referencing Lady Gaga's LGBT-friendly #1 song. "Gay is something that kids learn from the media and programming," he said.

Along with basically staying that God doesn't make mistakes (and equating gays to "mistakes"), as well as slamming Obama for his support of the gay community, Morgan also said that if his son would ever come out to him, he said he "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."

"I don't f--king care if I piss off some gays, because if they can take a f--king d--k up their ass, they can take a f--king joke," he said. We're still waiting for the punchline.

While there's been no comment from Tracy's camp, the Ryman Auditorium did release a statement. "The Ryman Auditorium regrets that people were offended by statements made by Tracy Morgan during his June 3 appearance," it read. "The Ryman does not control the content presented by people appearing on its stage, nor does it endorse any of the views of, or statements made by, such persons."

It's not the first time Morgan has come under fire for homophobic remarks. In 2009 there were walkouts during his stand-up show at Carnegie Hall after, among other things, he said being gay was a choice.
