Hey T.I., violence against gay children is NOT funny

I cringe to write about this, but it's necessary.

A rapper by the name of T.I. is pulling the "gays want to shut down everyone who disagrees with them" card.

T.I. said the following in an upcoming issue of Vibe magazine:
Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy (Morgan) say during a stand-up was, ‘C’mon man, I think gay people are too sensitive. If you can take a dick, you can take a joke.’ [Cracks up laughing.] That shit was funny to me. And it’s kind of true.’
While T.I. makes clear that he supports anyone’s sexual preference, he then connects, in his opinion, a current oversensitivity among gay people with a consequential and ironic offense of the First Amendment. “They’re like,‘If you have an opinion against us, we’re gonna shut you down.’ … That’s not American. If you’re gay you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you’re against it you should have the right to be against it in peace.’

Earlier this year, comedian Tracy Morgan got into trouble due to a viciously nasty comedy routine about gays. Amongst other things, Morgan said he would stab his son if the child was gay.
