Tracy Morgan’s tour of a thousand apologies pedaled into Nashville, Tennessee today, where IT ALL BEGAN! Tracy held a press conference with GLAAD and Kevin Rogers, the man who started it all when he Facebooked about Tracy’s “GO BUTT FUCK YOUR BULLIED TEARS, GAYS, ” rant.
Tracy started the week by meeting with homeless gay teens in NYC and now he’s come full circle by apologizing to the gay and lesbian community in Nashville. At this rate, it won’t be long before Tracy is PFlag co-president with Debbie and is waving the rainbow flag as the grand marshal of every city’s gay pride parade. This is what Tracy said at today’s press conference.
The first thing I want to say is that I apologize to Kevin and people that were at the show for bumming them out. I want to apologize to my friends and my family and my fans and everyone in every community who were offended with this. I didn’t mean it. 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. I totally feel that, in my heart, I really don’t care who you love, same-sex or not, as long as you have the ability to love. So now, at this point in my life, it’s an opportunity to make a difference, I don’t really see gay or straight, I just see human beings now. I pride myself on 20 years, 18 years of standup, of using it to heal people and not hurt. That was my whole thing. And I hurt people with this. So, from the bottom of my heart, I apologize to everyone who I offended with my words on stage, in Nashville and everywhere else. I want to take this opportunity, to err is human, to forgive is divine. Thank you Kevin, thank you everybody, for your support. I just want to take this opportunity to help and not hurt.
Both GLAAD and Kevin Rogers accepted Tracy’s apology and they all hugged it out before making each other friendship bracelets. Here’s a clip.
Tracy and Kevin practically wore matching shirts too. If I put on a windbreaker, slide on a shower curtain ring like it’s a cock ring and squint while humming the melody to “Red River Valley,” I can practically see the new cast of the Planes, Trains and Automobiles remake. Tracy and Kevin will be in a buddy comedy together, trust this.
Well, that’s that. The Roger Ebert vs. Bam Margera Twitter war has shot its last character, the Tracy Morgan vs. the gays feud is over and now let’s hope that the battle between my bowels and Kahlua martinis comes to an end soon, because that shit needs to stop (literally).
