Tracy Morgan, the stand-up comic and actor, who came under fire for insensitive comments he made against gay and lesbian people, was in Nashville, TN where he spoke out in support of LGBT people.
As Reported By GLAAD:
Comedian Tracy Morgan met with GLAAD, local advocates and the media in Nashville today to apologize for anti-gay remarks made during a June 3 stand-up performance.
“I apologize to Kevin and people that were at the show,” Morgan said. “I want to apologize to my friends, and my family and my fans and everyone in every community who were offended with this. I didn’t know. I didn’t mean it… I don’t have a hateful bone in my body. I don’t believe that anyone should be bullied or just made to feel bad about who they are. I totally feel that, in my heart, I don’t care who you love, same-sex or not, as long as you have the ability to love… I don’t really see gay or straight, I just see human beings now… From the bottom of my heart, I apologize to everybody… To err is human, to forgive is divine… Thank you everybody for forgiving me.”
