T.I. Defends Tracy Morgan & Thinks Osama Bin Laden’s Death Is A C-O-N-Spiracy
T.I. seems to be making up for lost time. T.I. will be on the cover of the Dec. 6th issue of Vibe magazine. And it seems he has a lot to say…about a lot of things. *SIDENOTE: Shout out to all the folks who know where “C-O-N-Spiracy” comes from!*
Remember when actor/comedian Tracy Morgan went under fire for alleged homophobic slurs at a Nashville comedy show? Here’s his thoughts on that:
Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy 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.’
Hmm. I kind of think he simplified gay/lesbian rights with that last example but I’m sure his heart was in the right place. T.I. also had shared his thoughts on Osama Bin Laden‘s death…or alleged death, rather…*side eye* Check out his skeptic thoughts on the situation, after the jump…
The conversation shifts from Muammar Gaddafi’s death—which occurred five days prior—to Osama Bin Laden’s assassination to both Eastern giant’s once empowered relationship with the U.S. government. “It’s like everybody that the U.S. was besties with, years later they’re the worst person in the world,” says Tip. “My question is what character traits do they possess now that they didn’t possess when y’all were besties? What made it go astray, and who’s to say they were on the dishonest end of that?”
The politic’n doesn’t stop there. Before an article can be selected from the “Osama Bin Laden killed” search, T.I. twists his lips in sarcastic fashion and shoots, “If that really happened.”
VIBE: So you’re skeptical about the legitimacy of Osama’s death?
T.I.: Man, I’m a conspiracy theorist by nature. You can’t experience the federal penal system and not be somewhat skeptical.
OK, Clifford. I’ll let you ride on that one. Alone.
