Morgan opens up to GLAAD about bullying and his father dying from AIDS as a result of a heroin addiction. “I know how bad bullying can hurt,” Morgan said. “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.
Tracy Morgan is currently in Nashville where he is working to making amends to those who he offended. He has also announced that he will film a PSA as part of GLAAD’s upcoming ‘Amplify Your Voice’ PSA campaign.
