Tracy Morgan joins the list of artists and entertainers protesting Mississippi’s “religious freedom” bill by canceling his upcoming appearance at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica.
He was originally supposed to stop for his Picking Up the Pieces stand-up tour, but tells WLOX he won’t be appearing as a result of the bill.
Tracy did not make this decision lightly. He very much looks forward to rescheduling his tour dates in the area after the ‘Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act’ is either repealed or heavily amended.
If you’re unfamiliar, Gov. Phil Bryant signed the bill giving businesses the ability to use their personal religious beliefs as an excuse for refusing to offer services to potential customers. Let’s hope this bill gets repealed.
