Tracy Morgan Apologizes For Anti-Gay Comedy Rant

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.”

      If you go to a comedy club, everyone and everything is fair game. Some pole smoker was offended by his comments. Go home, smoke your roomer’s pole and bury the vib to the hair. Little twinkle toed flamer.

    Morgan, no need to apologize.

    You’re in America, you have the right speak your mind.

    so the gay community gets mad for Morgan’s rant, but yet, when an object is inserted up their anus, it perfectly okay?

    you are the reason why America has lost it’s great politics……

    before woman voted, no one messed with america. men still had their balls and took the final word at home.

    post female voting rights, men had lost their balls and mothers against everything agreed to allow gays to have a say in our politics.

    now, we’re no different than frenchies or brits.

    what’s next?
    transgenders rewriting our constitution?

    …kind’a pointless for our founding fathers to leave the euro political scene and create such a great nation.(at the time.)

    Just the thought he would pull out a knife and stab someone is a threat of violence. That’s enough to warrant an apology, whether the person is gay or not, on the receiving end of the knife.

    I would “pull out a knife and stab” you son for being a niggger.
