Stars Comment on TV Censorship at Webby Awards
Celebrities and cewebrities collided at the 15th Annual Webby Awards in New York tonight, and in light of Brooke Shields' bleeped Tony Award speech and Tracy Morgan's anti-gay tirade, we got the stars to open up about the biggest difference between TV and the web - censorship.
"Profanity and mishaps, sparingly, works like an atom bomb - fantastic," said "Saturday Night Live" cast member Darrell Hammond, who sympathized with his former cast mate Tracy Morgan, saying, "Listen I knew Tracy 15 years. He's a great guy... We all go over the line."
Marlon Wayans agreed with Darrell's comments, explaining, "When you're working out material as a comic, sometimes you say things that may be inappropriate and what you find is a line. I think what Tracy found was a cliff."
There was no delay needed for the Webby Awards, which broadcasted via live stream over the internet. Justin Bieber, Zach Galifianakis, Conan O'Brien, Adrian Grenier, Will Ferrell, Jim Carey, Steve Carell, Snoop Dogg, LL Cool J, & Arcade Fire are just some of the big winners of the event, which was hosted by Lisa Kudrow.
