Tracy Morgan Continues To Repent For Anti-Gay Tirade!

We really, honestly don't know how to make sense of all of this.

Tracy Morgan has been pretty universally slammed for his recent violent, hate-filled and homophobic remarks regarding the LGBT community during a recent stand-up set in Tennessee, and now, he's once again not only publicly apologizing for his behavior, but wants to make it right with those he so deeply offended!

The 30 Rock actor will be meeting later this week with gay youth who have been rejected by their families because of their sexuality, as well those who have lost family members to anti-gay violence. He will then attend a press conference in Tennessee to protest the state's Don't Say Gay bill, which will outlaw the discussion of homosexuality in public schools before the ninth grade.

He also reveals in a statement:

“I guess the reason I am successful is because I am so unfiltered. And sometimes as a result I say really stupid shit. The truth is if I had a gay son, I would love him just as much as if he was straight … I might have to try to love even more because I know of the difficulty that he would have in society. Of all the sicknesses, there is probably none more abusive than homophobia. My heart is committed to giving everyone the same rights that I deserve for myself. I don’t care if you love the same sex as long as you have the ability to love someone. Also, you should have the right no matter who you are to protect and serve our country. I am deeply sorry for the comments I made. What I am most sad about is the comments I made about kids and bullying. I would never want any young person to think that I wasn’t on their side and if any young person thinks they can bully a young gay kid, come see me at 30 Rock. On the corner, I would be happy to meet you. Or Brooklyn if you can’t make it into Manhattan. When all of this set in, I realized how hurtful my words were. Not asking anyone to feel sorry for me or pity me, but I definitely don’t want or need people to defend me. In my heart, I know that the words I used are indefensible. I appreciate the love from my friends and fans, but I was wrong. Period. Now, I just gotta think of some funny shit, not some shit that gets me knocked upside my head."

"I know how bad bullying can hurt. I was bullied when I was a kid. I'm sorry for what I said. I didn't mean it. I never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone. My family knew what it was like to feel different. My brother was disabled and I lost my father to AIDS in 1987. My dad wasn't gay, but I also learned about homophobia then because of how people treated people who were sick with that. Parents should support and love their kids no matter what. Gay people deserve the same right to be happy in this country as everyone else. Our laws should support that."

Wow. Certainly sounds remorseful to us!

Much more like Tracy.

Which really makes us all the more baffled about his behavior that night! What on Earth would prompt him to act in such a way?!

Either way, we think that this a step in the right direction, and we sincerely hope that he continues down this path and really does want to change his thought process on the issue, instead of just saying and doing what he thinks he needs to to get back in the public's good graces.

We want to believe you, Tracy. Please don't disappoint us!

What do U think?? Should his comments be forgiven?

    Come on, Tracy. There is no freedom of speech when it comes to the Gay Mafia that rules Hollywood and the Media. You can hate on Christians, whites, asians, heterosexuals and multitudes of other groups/ethnicity/persuasions….but gawd forbid, do not step on the toes of so called tolerant gays or they will slay you. You have been gagged by those that preach tolerance.



  2. 2

    "my dad wasn't gay" what? was that necessary? I never thought Tracy Morgan was funny, free speech the guy can say and hate whomever he wants, I still won't watch him and etleast now I know where he stands. Wanda Sykes is a narrow minded bigot for her deafening small mnded remaks on how much better LA is than the rest of America. She and Tracy can have each other.

    you say this sounds more like tracy…? huh mario?
    it sounds more like a PR person writing a script is what it sounds like…….
    anybody who would say what he did…would not do a 180 and blab about how he would love his son..knowning how tough life would be blah blah blah. its PR bullshit



  4. 4

    lol oh great. now he feels bad. but i don't. I don't like gays/lesbians/bisexuals or transgendered people. i think it's beyond disgusting. and so wrong. i don't like being around those type of people. sick! thank goodness no one in my family is a freak. we're all normal & straight. thank goodness….being gay should be illegal. it's just so wrong. those type of people are sick in the head. those people need help big time. just sick.



  5. 5

    You know I know Tracy didn't write the above except the part about his dad not being gay, but any day of the week even though they are bigots Wanda and Tracy are better better human beings than the Kardashians and the Spellings of the world if you look at the big picture…..



  6. 6

    you CAN'T put out the fire you started, Mr. Fancy - Pantz !!!



  7. 7

    He must REALLY be desperate for the work if he went out and bought some flak to write this blurb for him to emote. What a phony.



  8. 8

    This man has a good heart, which is obvious to those who've actually listened to what he says in a serious context. He was one of the few who actually had the gonads to say it like it was with Sheen, that he was abusive and certainly not funny. I believe him when he says that he deeply regrets what he said, and only those who ask for forgiveness, should be forgiven. Most of us have made distasteful jokes when among friends because they know that there is nothing serious behind it, Tracy made the unfortunate mistake of doing it in public where it could be misunderstood and hurt those who heard what he said. As a public figure, there is no excuse, and he is aware of that.



  9. 9

    Well he'll be blacklisted for a while, just like Mel. Then people will find someone else to hate. Same with every other celeb that's put their foot in their mouth.



  10. 10

    Tracy should never have said anything in the first place. I don't get why he did. I'm not a fan.



  11. 11

    Re: white_is_ugly – The fact that you think you're normal, shows just how far up the scale your delusions have gotten.



  12. 12

    Why does this guy still have a job after what he said? And, of course, he SOUNDS remorseful now. Doesn't change how he feels inside, which is the same way 90% of black men feel about homosexuality. His views are the norm in the black community.



  13. 13

    your spin doctors can't unring the bell tracy. too little to late. now you'll pay the price. hope you saved your money ….



  14. 14

    This guy should be given the same treatment that Mel Gibson and Michael Richards received after their bigoted remarks were exposed. Just cause he's black doesn't mean he should receive the same harsh treatment the other received from the entertainment community and public at large. His comments were filled with hate and violence against people who never did a thing to him.

  16. 16

LOLOLOLOL Funny peeps Tracy Mel Heeeeel arious Tracy is barely a comedian and is funny when he is written for. OH and to WANDA SYKES UR AND IDIOT and I bet Tracy moves to the south uuuuu dumdasssssssss

    Re: white_is_ugly – You think that repeatedly hating on others for the color of their skin is 'normal?' Allrighty then. You are an equal opportunity offender, though.



  18. 18

    Re: white_is_ugly – Me thinks she doth protest too much… you are either in the closet yourself or just plain ignorant. Of course you don't know about anyone in your family. Who would tell you anything?? I feel sorry for you and your disgusting attitude. It must be terrible to live with so much hate in your heart.



  19. 19

    lets go back in time when perez hilton use to say awful things about everyone…tracy said he was sorry! let it go we all know it wasnt ok, just like the things you use to say were not ok. stop this whole "dont disappoint us." it is such shit! move on! Im a true fan of yours perez but sometimes you get so damn preachy! love you!



  20. 20

    He is probably just bitter that his folks gave him a chicks name. It's a little too late to backtrack now. We all know how he truly feels about gay people despite his PR group going into damage control.



  21. 21

    How about getting out & doing some volunteer work for the LGBT community!!

  22. ktmw1 says – reply to this


    22

    Yes, his comments should be forgiven. You all are being relentless. Obviously what he said was wrong, but do you think you're God? Will you not be happy until he drops to his knees and begs for mercy at your feet? Move on. He's sorry. How would you feel to have the whole country telling you that your sincere apology is not enough? Who are you to judge? Let the man work it out in his own heart. If his apology is not enough, what else would you have him do? What would be enough to forgive?



  23. 23

    Dude… He's a comedian for fuck's sake! Lighten up, you can't bitch about tolerance & then show none.

    Everybody knows what comedians do. Just like everybody knows that Perez Hilton or anyone else in the media will sensationalize anything to drive page views & advertising revenue. It's all very calculated & predictable.

    There are plenty of people that deserve all of the hate, &would provide some tangible benefit to you from your hatred. Focus on politicians & don't waste your time worrying about fucking entertainers. Christ!



  24. 24

    So let me get this straight–Perez actually believes:
    1) That Tracy Morgan wrote that statement himself out of sincere remorse
    2) That Tracy Morgan arranged all those "I'm sorry" events
    3) That 30 Rock producers didn't hand Tracy an itinerary and a statement and said "Do this or lose your job" and he's only doing what he has to do to keep his job.



  25. 25

    Re: harrycontests – No but perez used to out people for pay which is more evil to do to your own community ( I'm not gay w/ an agenda) than being some misguided bigot who is exercising free speech and showing people his true colors and now getting slapped by his professional community that it filled w/ gays who arent going to stand for it. No one believes Tracy wrote it. except the part about his dad not being gay I am sure he MADE them put that in.



  26. 26

    Pah-lease Perez- if Sarah Palin, Cary Prejean, any conservative comedian or whomever said this you would demand there heads.



  27. 27

    i think many agree that morgan's comedy bit was not funny. i think he's doing the right thing, and realizing how ignorant he was, and i think those who are upset at his commets should accept his mea culpa, and make an example for those who have erred.
    morgan really has never been insightful, just bombastic & self absorbed. in this case he's learned from it



  28. 28

    Re: white_is_ugly – Then why do you read fucking perez hilton, you idiot.
    You are supporting a gay man you know! You are an ass hole.



  29. 29

    Re: white_is_ugly
    I hate straight people that have kids out of wedlock and collect welfare pn my taxes also I hate people who talk about gays but have family members in prison for murder or violent crimes and love the murderers/suspects but thank god the have no gays in their family?

    Now that's really Queer!



  30. 30

    Okay he made a mistake like everybody else. He was trying to be funny which in the end results it ended up being a disaster. He didn't mean it. We can forgive people cheating on their wives, doing drugs, beating a spouse, pissing on somebody, sex tape, and etc but somehow we cant forgive some guy who said "he would stab his kid if he was gay". People reacts too sensitive about that subject but really they should be acting sensitive about other things too. You live, You learn, and You forgive. I forgive you Tracy.



  31. 31

    Re: white_is_ugly – Why do you care so much what goes on in someone else's bedroom? You sound like the freak.

    This tells you right here and now that Tracy Morgan is not the least bit funny, per his latest rant. He can kiss my ass in Times Square at noontime……………how sorry can you get.
