Morgan Re-Apologizes, Schedules PSA, Does A Lot Of Other Stuff Too

Tracy Morgan seems to have taken the controversy surrounding his terrible anti-gay tirade seriously.  Either he is genuinely sorry or Tina threatened his paycheck-- either way, he's got some good stuff lined up.

In a statement to GLAAD, Morgan apologized a second time, saying:

“I know how bad bullying can hurt.  I was bullied when I was a kid.   I’m sorry for what I said.  I didn’t mean it.  I 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 wasn’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.”

He is reportedly going to be meeting with LGBT youth that have been abused by their family to learn their stories, will be filming a PSA (told ya so), and will be flying back to Tennessee to personally apologize to the audience members he offended during the Nashville performance.

Alright.  I'm satisfied.  Can we move on now?
