Tracy Morgan Apologizes to Gay Community for his Homophobic Jokes

Tracy Morgan has recently been under scrutiny for a stand-up comedic performance last Friday where he openly bashed and questioned homosexuals “choice” in lifestyle. Kevin Rodgers attended the show where he reported via Facebook:

“I figured at some point the gay jokes would fly and I’m well prepared for a good ribbing of straight gay humor. I have very thick skin when it comes to humor; I can dish and I can take. What I can’t take is when Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay s*it was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that “Born this Way” is bulls*it, gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because “God don’t make no mistakes” (referring to God not making someone gay cause that would be a mistake).”

“He said if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not [he mimicked a gay, high pitched voice] or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death.”

Tracy Morgan sent this apology into HuffingtonPost.com

“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. 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.”

Do you think the comedian is truly sorry, or is he just reacting to the pressure of the gay community?
