NEW YORK (AP) — Tracy Morgan says he’s sorry for telling an audience that he would “pull out a knife and stab” his son for being gay.

The comedian and “30 Rock” actor apologized Friday to his fans and the gay and lesbian community for what he called “my choice of words” during his June 3 appearance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

A Facebook account posted by an audience member said Morgan’s stand-up performance was full of homophobic references. The Ryman Auditorium issued its own apology afterward for Morgan’s behavior.

Morgan denies being a hateful person. He acknowledged that “even in a comedy club” what he said went too far “and was not funny in any context.”
