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.

Im so sick of these damn homos pushing their beliefs on everyone. I hate their lifestyle and everything they do is for attention. Why arent there any "straight rights" parades..lol..ya know why...because we are normal!!!! Our country has gone to hell and we are in serious trouble. Tracy, dont let em cut your balls off bro..Be a man and stand for what you believe!! Dont let a bunch of **** dictate how you feel...it makes me sick!!

You are so f'in dumb and uneducated. No one is forcing their beliefs onto others. It is not a life style, heterosexuality is a lifestyle too if you want to play it that way. Too bad you do not know the difference between belief and sexuality, if you did you wouldn't even made that grammatical error. Hate to tell you this, but heteros obsess over homosexuals, about what they do in their bedrooms or what they likely don't do. The insecure heteros also fantasize a lot about having sexual advancements being made at them from gays and lesbians. Straight parades aren't needed, because the no one is bullying them, the insecure sect of hetero get to have their insecurity made into law that prohibits gays and lesbians from marrying one another. They aren't looking for attention, trashy and useless "humans" like yourself are the ones bring them the attention negatively at best. So thank you for putting them in the spotlight. Normal is made up, a bunch of insecure uneducated in or on the subject of homosexuality is "normal". Because your sexuality is judged as normal is why you talk the way you do.

Yeah heterosexuality is linked to molestation of children, bestiality. People are harassing you, and other heterosexuals they even receive death threats, committing suicide, and there are heterosexual homicides. Yes they are cry babies thanks for that insightful post. Jack off.

bravo! bravo to mr morgan and his trip down into the sphere's of the marginalized to show the reality and the fantasy between his worldviews. now mr morgan can truely walk the walk and show the world he's being educated to the 'other'. bravo mr morgan for taking the steps to reinvent your career as you educate yourself to the politicalization of engenderment and the power of artists to sway the hearts and minds of generations of americans. now you bare witness to a broadened understanding that the world is not black and white. now you see all the shades of grey as americas most marginalized struggle to keep their heads up in a world of hate. we give a damn tracy. we're proud to see you take the steps needed to give marginalized people new hope. now practice what you preach. get out there and start tellin the world about your new found faith in the understanding of engenderment and the uncertainties of the uterus. we're all unique biological beings mr morgan. you've taken the 1st steps to awaken yourself from the bigotry and hate that so many americans face. now you can be the leader and make up some new jokes to desensitize and integrate america's marginalized so that america knows about the other and accepts these citizens for who they are: 100% american heroes fighting against the odds in a bigoted american society. do your part now mr morgan. tell some new jokes and let america accept their most precious citizens!

*sigh*

It's comments like these first few that make me ashamed to watch TMZ, to know that I am being lumped-in with haters, phobes and ignorant rednecks/overcompensating males of every color, AND ignorant women who are egotistical enough to assume that gay/bi women would even LOOK AT THEM.

So sad. Really. Tracy Morgan? He doesn't give a **** about suicidal teenagers who are bullied because of the way they were BORN. He and Kenan Thompson both voiced SUPPORT for Chris Brown after he attacked Rihanna. Not exactly your most political "activist" or "give-a-****" pair of guys there.

This is a network/NBC-Universal-Xerox-Pop-Copy-conglomerate PR decision, because he might affect the price of their stock. Not because he's "funny" in any sense of the word, or that he adds anything TO the network (face it, it's all Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin & that little Mormon nut on that show, as well as Tracy's "entourage," THEY'RE the funny ones!), but now he's become a potential LIABILITY, so he must go through the same old tired "apology" bull**** that was fake from Mel Gibson, fake from that Hitler-loving "fashion" designer, and fake as hell from Tracy. It's old hat, industry standard by now, and it accomplishes NOTHING, because BIGOTS VERY RARELY ARE CAPABLE OF CHANGE, even with all of the education in the world.

Maybe it's just me, but in the above pictures, Tracy looks like Dumbya did on 9/11, frozen in ****-yer-pants fear, stumbling through his attempt to "be cool" and attempt to "read" to the children. Just another puppet, faking his "concern" for other human beings, as if he were capable of it.

Only reason he's doing this is to save his career, pressure from his peers "in the business". Punk ass. Live and let live. I laugh when minorities bag on other minorities, what a joke. Being a black man he should be able to relate to homosexuals; the hate, the persecution, the stereotyping, the struggle etc.

Ps. There is no god, wake up, enjoy life

Could he possibly have been THIS worried about his career? It's JUST. A. SHOW!! I'm just as shocked at the amount of people who think this isn't simply his publicist trying to douse a fire before it got any bigger; and I seriously doubt Morgan cared a full nanosecond after leaving that room.

(Notice how an army of "hetero's" didn't go on any sort of a "news worthy" (very loosely phrased) spree of some kind after movies like "The Crying Game." Because just like with comics, it isn't real...everything you see on stages or big screens, etc is not a factual accounting of those individuals personal feelings. I'm fairly certain he was most likely regurgitating whatever his writers had penned for him. Freakin' lemmings...)

These is not about being ignorant, but I think the world is going to his end. authority should not encourage this. The should help people to come out that situation, not go deep on it and trying to make everybody believe its right to do so. And bringing more corruption the new regeneration, can you see the negative part of this things(gay, homo) if you guys can give birth, that's literally tell you it's so wrong. we are not going to the bible just common sense.
