Most people don’t know how raunchy Tracey Morgan can get during his live shows, and it’s because of that he is stepping up and apologizing for his wrong doing during one of his shows. Where he went on an anti-gay violent filled rant in front of a Nashville audience who came to see his show.
According to the folks at MSN/wonderwall.com:
Tracy Morgan is really sorry.
Bing even more: He’s so sorry, in fact, that he’s heading back to Nashville in an attempt to right his wrongs.
The comedian and “30 Rock” star came under intense fire on Friday after a shockingly violent homophobic tirade during his standup routine. He issued a statement apologizing, saying:
“I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others.”
Now, Morgan, 42, is planning to return to the country music capital next week and apologize in person to the audience members he offended.
He told GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios he’s also committed to meeting with LGBT youth in New York from the Ali Forney Center who have been hurt or left homeless by parental rejection as well as family members who have lost children to anti-gay violence.
“I know how bad bullying can hurt. I was bullied when I was a kid. I’m sorry for what I said. I didn’t mean it. I never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone,” he told the organization.
“Parents should support and love their kids no matter what. Gay people deserve the same right to be happy in this country as everyone else. Our laws should support that. I hope that my fans gay, straight, whatever forgive, and I hope my family forgives me for this.”
“Meeting with gay and transgender youth shunned by their parents and families who have lost loved ones to anti-gay violence is an important first step,” Barrios said.
“These meetings will help Tracy better understand that no one should be treated differently or subjected to violence.”
These are the days and times where stuff like what Tracey did is not gonna be tolerated in the public eye. The sooner he learns that, that’s the moment his comedy show will change.
