Comic Tracy Morgan apologizes For Anti-Gay Remarks

Tracy Morgan has apologized for unleashing a homophobic rant last week at a stand-up show in Nashville.

The Associated Press reports:

Tracy Morgan said Friday that he was sorry for telling an audience in Nashville, Tenn., that if his son were gay, he would “pull out a knife and stab” him.

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

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

Morgan’s outbursts triggered heated comment on Twitter, making him a “trending” topic Thursday and Friday.
