Tracy Morgan and GLAAD have released a statement reguarding what are Tracy Morgan’s next steps in educating himself on gay rights, the LGBT community and bullying!
â€œI know how bad bullying can hurt. I was bullied when I was a kid. Iâ€™m sorry for what I said. I didnâ€™t mean it,â€ Tracy says in the statement, of the joke that he would do violence against his child if he came out as gay. â€œI never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone. My family knew what it was like to feel different. My brother was disabled and I lost my father to AIDS in 1987. My dad wasnâ€™t gay but I also learned about homophobia then because of how people treated people who were sick with that. Parents should support and love their kids no matter what. Gay people deserve the same right to be happy in this country as everyone else. Our laws should support that. I hope that my fans gay, straight, whatever forgive and I hope my family forgives me for this.â€
I am sure that when Tracy did those jokes that all of this would have happened to him…hopefully now he knows better!
