Tracy Morgan, back in Nashville, issues apology


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Tracy Morgan can’t stop apologizing after offending his Nashville audience during a recent performance. On Tuesday, the comedian returned to Tennessee to issue another apology to protestors and fans.

“I want to apologize to my friends and my family and my fans and everyone in every community who were offended with this,” Morgan said.

“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,” Morgan continued. “I don’t care who you love, same-sex or not, as long as you have the ability to love.”

THR says Morgan also met with Elke Kennedy, founder of Sean’s Last Wish, whose son was murdered in an anti-gay hate crime.

As part of his apology tour, Morgan also will participate in GLAAD’s upcoming “Amplify Your Voice” PSA campaign that should feature Russell Simmons, Al Sharpton, Kristin Chenoweth, Chaz Bono, Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Vinna Guadagnino and Tori Spelling.
