Tracy Morgan:

I'm Going Back to Nashville to Apologize

6/13/2011 2:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tracy Morgan is so committed to fighting the anti-gay message he spewed during a recent comedy routine in Nashville -- he's going back to the city next week ... to apologize to everyone he offended  face-to-face.

Tracy spoke with Jarrett Barrios today -- the President of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- who tells us, GLAAD reached out to Tracy about an in-person apology in Nashville next week ... and Tracy agreed on the spot.

If that weren't enough -- Barrios tells us, Tracy also plans to visit homeless gay teens at the Ali Forney Center in NYC this week ... teens disowned by their parents because of their sexual orientation.

The cherry on top -- Tracy also plans to film a PSA for GLAAD's upcoming "Amplify Your Voice" campaign.

Dude dont be so spineless. You say something and then change cause you hurt someones feelings?? You cant please everyone. Effing people today with their tissue paper feelings. Such total losers. They don't matter Tracy, they wont amount to anything. Stick to your guns. You might as well hang it up if your going to have kiss everyone's ass the next day after every show. People only letting you speak if they are ok with what you say...kinda form of slavery if you ask me.

"If a white comic had advocated lynching a "Ni**er", that comic would be getting the same backlash Tracy is getting."


I swear I cant tell who's blacker these days, gays or illegal aliens...

He doesn't have any need to apologize. People have to stop being so sensitive. It was a comedy act for crying out loud. Gay people just have to man up a little. Look at the crap Christians put up with as an example. All this whining. Your feelings are hurt? Really? There's a word for that.

Being threatened into doing something means NOTHING!!!!! And GLAAD has Hollywood by the balls for some strange reason??? Not one person I know knows who the hell they are and if they did, they'd be disgusted in the way entertainment decisions are being made today! I know who they are because I read a bunch of lies about celebrities online.

Trust me, America is not ready for GLAAD nor will they ever be!

You think what this guy said was bad? Watch Eddie Murphy's Delirious one time and that was back in the 80's.

People in this day and age will apologize for any little thing if it means saving their career, so they will just bend over and make amends, shameful really.

George Carlin would be another good one on this topic, Him & Eddie both are funny men, even though Carlin is no longer alive, oh how i miss those days.

Ya doin too much Tracy!! You apologized. You let people know "you get it" when it comes to the uproar and you gave your apology. If that aint good enough for people that don't even know you like that then SCREW THEM! That speaks for their character with respects to given somebody the benefit of the doubt. Meeting with that GLAAD dude is nothing more than fuel to legitimize their group. NOBODY HAS EVEN HEARD OR SEEN ANY FOOTAGE FROM THE SHOW1!!! Are you kidding me!!!!!!!!!!!

Look... not condoning what he said.. but the guy has actual mental issues that have been discussed for years. People need to let this one go. This is liking getting mad at a kid because he peed himself in public. Tracy has brain issues, probably from decades of not treating and taking his diabetes seriously, and his illness just showed itself in public.
