On Friday’s “Today” on NBC, the stars of the recently released movie “Last Vegas” were asked to react to a decision by the Hallmark greeting card company to omit the word “gay” from the lyrics of “Deck the Halls” on a Christmas ornament.

“Don we now our fun apparel,” the ornament reads.

Morgan Freeman weighed in and noted that political correctness has forced upon him the label of “African” in the term “African-American.”

“Yeah, we have a tendency to do that anyway,” Freeman said. “I mean, you get — politically correct stuff happens that you don’t want to happen. I all of a sudden became an African — political correctness, African-American. I’m not African.”
