Tracy Morgan

'Hey, Homeless

Gay Teens ...'

6/17/2011 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tracy Morgan put on his serious face today in NY -- to meet with some homeless gay teens and victims of anti-gay violence -- in an effort to educate himself after his recent homophobic comedy act.

During the meeting -- organized by GLAAD -- Morgan spoke with two young gay people, Jayden Love and Raciel Castillo (pictured above, to the right of Morgan), who were forced to live on the streets after they were shunned by their families.

Afterward, Jayden and Raciel said, "We really appreciate that we were able to meet with Tracy Morgan ... We hope that our stories have the power to change not only Tracy's perspective, but those of any parent who may be struggling with accepting their child."

Tracy plans to go to Tennessee next week (the site of his homophobic performance) to apologize to the people he offended and to meet with the Tennessee Equality Project and local advocates.

What's next? We should apologize to pedophiles for not agreeing with their LIFESTYLE, or maybe apologize to the polygamists or the ones who marry their pets...ALL OF THESE ARE ALSO CHOICES THAT PEOPLE MAKE LIKE BEING GAY, stop the stupidity, being gay is a lifestyle and not a third , fourth or fifth gender...idiots...


You are the idiot for not realizing that the gays are born that way. And don't compare the gays with criminals like pedophiles. Did you know that 95% of the pedophiles are heterosexuals and rape little girls? I don't hear anybody blaming the heterosexuals for an outbreak of pedophilia.

no one in there right mind wants there child to be gay!

You don't choose your child's sexual orientation the same way nobody chooses their own sexual orientation. You are either born gay or straight. Gay people have existed since the world was created eon of years ago. Straight people nedd to learn to tolerate them and respect them and share this planet with them. Earth does not belong to the heterosexuals. Earth belongs to everybody (gay, straight, bisexual, hermaphrodite, transexuals, asexual etc...)

Empathy and compassion for another human being comes from your own experiences, hardships, etc. The fact that he recognizes that his remarks were based on his own ignorance and insecurities is commendable. Whether we agree with another persons sexual choices should never interfere with their right to have a safe loving home. Parents are supposed to be provide the foundation for your life and be your support system. When that fails or comes with conditions ...can you imagine a more painful betrayal? I personally think this country would be a better place if everyone took the time to sit with another person whom they think they have nothing in common with. It may just be the most insightfull conversation(s) you ever had. Tracy is doing exactly that and he will be a better father for it.

Tracy Morgan has the same look I had when I had to sit through a college lecture class on biology. The face reads: "What the **** is he talking about?"

Wow...This is by far the biggest stupidity I have ever witnessed...omg, God forgive me if I ever say anything bad about homosexuals...mind you, you can't even say the word "homosexual or gay...or whatever word relating" without looking around to see whether there is a gay person around, so you do not offend them.
you have to "accommodate the gays" and make them happy every time, God forbid you offend them....BTW, WHAT THE "F" IS A PRIDE PARADE...
GO "F" YOURSELVES(LITERALLY SPEAKING)...

Marie, you are the idiot, so say the pedophiles, the polygamists, the "animal lovers", "we were born that way", so should we believe them as well and accept their behavior as normal because they say so...
please educate yourself then come and talk about it,because you are looking very ignorant right now..

For those stupid ******* that think that think homosexuality is a belief system and they're somehow pushing their beliefs on everyone. They're not bullying, they're trying to be understood. They're not trying to convert anyone, its not a religion. Its sexuality. Now if we want to talk about pushing beliefs on people, we can talk about religion. I dont have a day go by where theres some skeazy idiot knocking on my door trying to sale a bible or tapping me on the shoulder asking me "have you found Jesus ?".. What about televangelism ? You dont think thats pushing your beliefs on anyone ?.. You dont see Jewish, Muslim, Mormon, Scientologist, hindu or Budhist televangelist on television do you ?.. You see any of them knocking on your door ?.. Hell no, because if its anything good that I can say about all the other religions (which is not much), including westernized islam is that they dont preach themselves in your face from dusk till dawn. Christians completely abuse their first amendment right and are completely oblivious. Especially in the states. Everytime you turn on the tube and I promise that the 3rd or 4th channel is a lying, bigoted, slandering, con artist fleecing people and feeding them hate.. And some how this bigotry is accepted in public domain.

I think it is disgusting to hear this kind of language in today's progressive society. Using words such as "jaybird", "daisyboy", "chimney", "colin" and "ginger" should be out of bounds. It is disgraceful that anybody would even consider using terms such as "bum buzzard", "trunk monkey", "backdoor butler", "dirt farmer" or even "chutney farmer". More subtle terminology such as "aidanus", "hommus", "magoo", "dhel", "diesel fuel" and "marma man" should also be off limits. Needless to say, there is absolutely no place for terms like "utbc", "fartpuncher", "clockwork orange", "spydurgot", "donut puncher", "proctonaut" or "662". There is absoloutely no room whatsoever for using language like "chocolate starfish trooper" and it should always be viewed as wholly inappropriate.

HOW PATHETIC WE HAVE BECOME WHEN WE CAN'T MAKE A STATEMENT WITHOUT ATTENDING SOME LIBERAL, POLITICAL SENSITIVE CRAP MEETING. WHY DO THESE INDIVIDUALS THINK THEY NEED SOME PROTECTION LIKE THEY ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIE? GET OVER IT, PULL YOURSELFS UP BY YOUR BOOT STRAPS (IN THIS CASE PERHAPS HIGH HEELS) AND LIVE YOUR LIFE. DON'T EXPECT EVERYONE TO LIKE YOU AND WHO REALLY CARES ANYHOW? PLEASE ALSO DON'T PUSH YOUR AGENDA ON THOSE THAT DON'T WANT TO STOMACH IT. WE DON'T PUSH OUR BEING STRAIGHT ON YOU, AT LEAST WE DON'T HAVE WORK SHOPS FOR WHEN YOUR PEOPLE NAME CALL. BELIEVE ME THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN A GAY PERSON SCORNED, I HAVE BEEN AROUND A FEW!

**** I can see Tracy's thought, " WTF I don't believe I have been reduced to sitting here listening to this mother****** in a dress!! God damn! If he was my son I would have shot his ass, so he wouldn't be homeless, the **** I have to do to keep my job. Damn I still can't believe what this mother******* wearing. "Damnit do I look interested enough, God Damn!!!!"

Most of the complaints about gays are, their sex antics in public, rudeness to anyone who says a word against them, Enjoying having selective people pay money for dare saying a word that they DO NOT OWN, and thankfully, the ones that I adore have not been publically bitching at all, and that is why they still get love. We don't care what you do in your bedrooms, we just don't want you to tell us about it. Tell God. Everything was good until your Big Sisters at GLADD started thinking they could substitute for God and pretend they were worthy of casting judgements on certain people, they did not really want an apology, they wanted money. Each time the Bitches complained, at least one had to suggest all who were bitched about give up money. The very worst was, one of it suggested Tracy payed for the homeless homos to get off the street. Why in the hell don't GLADD do it. Tracy has a family, and an illness that can sit him down at any given moment, just as you are in danger of getting a fatal disease. He had a way of supporting himself without your damn welfare, and the slime, self-centered bastards wanted to screw that up.

Only ones that can really be happy with your BS are the owners of Mouth Wash....HOPEFULLY. Stop trying to hump everybody's leg and trying to make people think that all gays are blooming idiots like yourselves. Go back to minding your own damn business, you all started this, now stop it. Live your life. Repeat to yourself, we are just another set of people that will be called names, but we are strong, proud, and will not buckle under from name calling. Now go away.
