GLAAD Says Tracy Morgan Apology Is Not Enough

Posted on Fri Jun 10, 2011 11:50 AM PDT

Morgan230.3.jpgThursday morning 30 Rock's Tracy Morgan issued an apology for his anti-gay rant , but gay rights organization GLAAD is saying the "I'm sorry" is not enough.

Said GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios:

    “Jokes that make light of violence directed at gay and lesbian youth aren’t only offensive, they put our kids in harm’s way. Tracy Morgan must not only apologize, but assure us that this won’t happen again and send a clear message to Americans that anti-gay violence is no joke.”

Morgan said in a written statement:

    “I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community ... I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. ... even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context."

GLAAD said it has reached out to Morgan in hopes of arranging a meeting with him and family members of those who have lost children to anti-gay violence. "If Tracy Morgan is sincere, he should take us up on meeting these families," Barrios said. "Perhaps by hearing their stories, he will learn that while we all love humor, this is no laughing matter.”

Morgan apparently went off on a Nashville crowd during a stand-up show of his last week. An audience member went home and posted about the show on Facebook, saying:

    "... Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay shit was crazy ... gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because 'God don't make no mistakes' ... He said that there is no way a woman could love and have sexual desire for another woman, that's just a woman pretending because she hates a f--king man. He took time to visit the bull**** of this bullying stuff and informed us that the gays needed to quit being pussies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying."

    Morgan also allegedly said that "gay was something kids learn from the media and programming." The post continued:

      "He said if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not [he mimicked a gay, high pitched voice] or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death. ... Tracy then said he didn't f--king care if he pissed off some gays, because if they can take a f--king d-ck up their a--... they can take a f--king joke."
