Tracy Morgan Makes Nashville Stop on Apology Tour
Posted on Jun 21, 2011
At least he’s being thorough. Shamed “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan, who sparked anger with a homophobic rant at a standup gig in Nashville, Tenn., on June 3, returned Tuesday to the scene of his comedic crime to say he’s sorry. Seriously.
This stopover was one of several similar image-rehabilitating and apologizing appearances Morgan has made since a Facebook post made by an audience member at that fateful show made headlines earlier this month. —KA
I don’t have a hateful bone in my body. I don’t believe that people should be bullied or just made to feel bad about who they are. I totally feel that in my heart. I really don’t care who you love, same-sex or not, as long as [you] have the ability to love. That’s the important thing here. So, now at this point in my life is an opportunity to make a difference. I don’t really see gay or straight, I just see human beings now,” the “30 Rock” star continued.
