After those comments, Tracy Morgan's people are trying to undertake some damage control - so they sent him on Russell Simmon's show, Global Grind for him to announce that "homophobia is a sickness", in which case ignorance is a sickness too - wheeeeeee, where's my indefinite doctor's note!

Here's what else he said: "I believe everyone deserves the right to be happy and marry who they want to - gay, white, black, male or female. Let me know where the rally's at Russ. I'm there! Of all the sicknesses, there is probably none more abusive than homophobia. My heart is committed to giving everyone the same rights that I deserve for myself. I don't care if you love the same sex as long as you have the ability to love someone."

In relation to the things in said regarding bullied gay kids should "stop whining", he added: "You should have the right no matter who you are to protect and serve our country. I am deeply sorry for the comments I made. What I am most sad about is the comments I made about kids and bullying. I would never want any young person to think that I wasn't on their side."

Yeah, perhaps the comments made about stabbing your "son in the head" if he's gay are a bit sad too, what with you having three of them 'n all.
