Tracy Morgan Apologizes for Homophobic Rant

"I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I'm not a hateful person and don't condone any kind of violence against others," said Morgan, 42, reports

"While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context."

After Morgan's performance in Nashville, an audience member named Kevin Rogers posted an essay on his Facebook page, titled, "Why I No Longer 'Like' Tracy Morgan." (Warning: the essay contains strong language to describe what Rogers writes was said onstage by Morgan.)
