Will Adam Carolla Get Tracy Morgan’d?

The king of all podcasts is feeling the heat from GLAAD.
Comedian Adam Carolla recently let loose with some corrosive comments after hearing a group wanted to see “Sesame Street” regulars Bert and Ernie get married on a future installment of the kiddie show.
“When did everybody get lumped in with the f–king gays?” said Carolla, according to The Daily News.
“When did we start giving a s–t about [transgender] people?” Carolla said, adding “pre-op, transgender, transneutral, trans fat” population needs to “shut up.”
That drew the ire of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). Carolla responded with a half-hearted apology via Twitter, noting he was a comedian, not a politician.
Will that be enough to stop potential fallout from the comments? Or will Carolla voluntarily submit to the sort of re-education comic Tracy Morgan endured after saying he would stab his son if he turned out to be gay during a stand-up routine?
