    Chris Rock retracts Tracy Morgan support

    Chris Rock reconsidered his support of Tracy Morgan following the "30 Rock" star’s anti-gay comedy routine.

    Initially Chris didn’t see what the big deal was when Tracy went off about how he could never accept a homosexual child. "I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live in world where Tracy Morgan can’t say foul inappropriate s—," Chris tweeted Friday.

    However, after finding out exactly what Tracy said, Chris changed his stance in a statement posted to his official 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," Chris wrote. "When I first heard the statement, I thought it was offensive but it also reminded me of my father saying, ‘I’ll kill you if you ever bring home a White girl.’"

    Chris  added, "After reading everything Tracy said, wow I get it that s–t 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."

    LeBron James isn’t pressed about haters

    Last night, LeBron James’ haters were reveling in the fact that the NBA player and his team, the Miami Heat, dropped the ball at the NBA Finals.

    Does that bother Bron Bron? Not really. In fact, he feels sorry for all of his detractors.

    "All the people that was rooting on me to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today," LeBron said in a post-game interview. "I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want to do with me and my family and be happy with that."

    He continued, "They can get a few days or a few months or whatever the case may be on being happy about not only myself, but the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal, but they have to get back to the real world at some point."

    ‘Single Ladies’ star talks onset drama

    Travis Winfrey, aka Omar from "Single Ladies," is scoffing at rumors that things have come to blows between Stacey Dash and LisaRaye McCoy on set.

    He admits there have been a few hiccups behind the scenes on "Single Ladies", but  he said it’s not as bad as gossip sites would have you believe.

    "There’s always going to be drama on the set, and I did see those rumors, but no. You would have seen some black eyes on the last few episodes if that happened," Travis told VH1. "They’re professionals. We sometimes work 15- or 16-hour days and of course somebody’s gonna be like “Leave me alone,” but any other drama got blown up in the Twitterverse."
