It took over a week for Tracy Morgan's homophobic stand-up set to gain media attention, and now a week after that comedians and colleagues are still reacting.

The most provocative response so far may have come this morning from comedian Louis C.K. via Twitter. Seemingly out of the blue, C.K. decided to state his opinion on the now-national news story about his fellow comic. As you can read in this slideshow below, C.K.'s stream of tweets cover many angles of the story, from gays' rights to live in confidence, to Morgan's right to be a ridiculous person, to how much intention one should place on a joke.

Morgan has since apologized for the remarks and is now planning to protest the "Don't Say Gay" bill with GLAAD to further show his support and regret. Do you agree with C.K.'s evaluation and defense that Morgan is a comedian? Or do you think Morgan is right to be making up for what were intentionally hurftul remarks? Tell us what you think in the comments.
