Now that he is feeling the backlash from every angle, Tracy Morgan has quickly changed his tune. In addition to apologizing for his comments, the comedian is trying to make amends. He will soon be meeting with gay youth in NYC who have been victims of bullys, homeless gay teens, and he will be traveling back to Nashville, TN to apologize to people who were offended by his act. In an interview with E! online, he said:
"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.... 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."
