In a statement, Morgan said, "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."
Morgan came under fire for horrific anti-gay remarks he made during the show such as saying that homosexuality was "bullsh*t" and something that kids learn from the media. Morgan also said that if his son said that he was gay he would "pull out a knife and stab that little n*gger to death." Awful stuff.
But what is really "in his heart?" This isn't the first time the former SNL cast member has made anti-gay remarks. During a 2009 performance in Carnegie Hall, several audience members walked out when Tracy said that homosexuality was a choice.
Apparently being an "equal opportunity jokester" means that he also thinks it's okay to joke about women going into the workplace instead of staying home to cook him a meal or having relations with mothers of mentally handicapped children.
An audience member from that Nashville show took to Facebook to disclose the remarks Morgan made that night. Click here to read the entire account, but be warned, it isn't pretty!
