Tracy Morgan Meets with Gay Teens in NYC

by at . Comments

Tracy Morgan has kept his word.

The comedian, who came under heavy fire for going off on the gay lifestyle during a set in Nashville this month, apologized last week and made plans to meet with teens who had suffered due to their sexuality.

He did just that yesterday.

During a meeting organized by GLAAD, Morgan spoke with Jayden Love and Raciel Castillo, gay teens who were forced to live on the streets after getting the boot from their families.

"We really appreciate that we were able to meet with Tracy Morgan," the teenagers said. "We hope that our stories have the power to change not only Tracy's perspective, but those of any parent who may be struggling with accepting their child."

Up next, the 30 Rock star will head back to Nashville, apologize to the folks he offended there and meet with the Tennessee Equality Project.

Since his "apology" stated that it was a "bad choice of words," I hope he explains to these gay teens exactly what "different words" he would have used to express the SENTIMENT of stabbing his son to death if he were gay. This is such bullshit.
