Tracy Morgan Apologizes for Anti-Gay Comedy Routine

by at . Comments

Tracy Morgan is sorry.

The comedian came under fire today when word got out about a set in Nashville last Friday that included a mean-spirited diatribe against gay people. It was both insulting and not remotely funny.

"I want to apologize to my fans and the gay and lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville," Morgan said, under pressure to retract his statements.

Do you accept this apology?

eric i like your comment. im black too and tracey morgan is just an ignorant uneducated prick picked off the streets of harlem. pisses me off to work as hard as i do after all my college days and see this fool make so much money for being such a horse's ass.


Why is everyone so up-in-arms about what he said? Who cares what he thinks? I sure don't. Stop giving him the free press and just hope he goes away.


His comments weren't taken in context? What the hell? You're at a comedy club, and you're ranting about gays... literally for no apparent reason whatsoever. And not only that, but getting on Obama's case for supporting gays?... And after all this, an apology? I'm black and gay and I would never accept an apology from this nutcase. Being gay isn't a choice, but being dumb certainly is.


It's called Hatred.


Choice of words? How about the intent behind them? You are not forgiven.
