BREAKING: Tracy Morgan issues full apology for "I'd kill my gay son" remarks

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

I'm actually surprised.  Rarely does someone get it this quickly, and so fully and completely take ownership.  Good for him.  From TMZ:

Tracy Morgan just issued an apology for the homophobic "jokes" he told during a performance in Nashville -- saying he "went too far" and his act was "not funny in any context."

In the statement, which Morgan sent to several gay rights groups, the comic says, "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."

He adds, "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.”
This is what he said.
