From Entertainment Weekly:
Nobody knows about public apologies better than David Letterman. Well, besides, perhaps, Tracy Morgan.
So the Late Show host commiserated with the 30 Rock star when he stopped by on Monday night to, once again, discuss the uproar he caused over the summer when he flew into an anti-gay rant on-stage at a show in Nashville. (According to accounts, Morgan had told the audience, “if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man … or he would pull out a knife and stab that little [n——-] to death.”) Since then, Morgan has made public apologies, including a conference with offended audience members from the infamous show.
Now it seems the comic actor is through with saying he’s sorry for the hate-fueled rant that split not only fans, but those in Hollywood (his 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey condemned his words, while fellow stand-up comedian Chris Rock supported him), and is now simply defending his craft. Watch the clip below. “At the end of the day, I’m a comedian. I try to use my gift that God gave me to help the world, to heal the world, not to hurt anyone. I was hurt by it because people came to the show and were bummed out, so I apologize to those folks that came and was bummed out,” he told Letterman.
