Tracy Morgan just issued an apology for the homophobic “jokes” he told during a performance in Nashville last Friday — saying he “went too far” and his act was “not funny in any context.” In the statement, which Morgan sent to several gay rights groups, the comic says, “I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville.” He adds, “I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others.” “While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.As TMZ previously reported, Morgan ignited a firestorm for the homophobic content in his act — in which he said he would stab his son if he acted gay.
Of course it wasn’t funny in any context. It’s Tracy Morgan. The most offensive part of his rant was the fact that anyone paid through the nose to see that shit. That said, I do believe that he didn’t mean it. He’s black, and black guys are pretty familiar with prison. Of course he’s not actually going to stab his gay son, because he knows damn well that he’d just become another dude’s gay son later.
