Tracy Morgan appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman Monday night and discussed his much-maligned comedy routine at a club in Nashville in June, in which he made homophobic comments, saying that he’d stab his son if he were gay.
“I apologize to those folks that came to the show and were bummed out,” the 30 Rock star said of the ill-received jokes.
But, the comedian didn’t go so far as to say he felt he’d done wrong, calling the incident “a misunderstanding” and explaining that he is an old-school comic, distancing himself from what he called Comedy Central-style, which he described as “premise, setup, punchline,” and instead compared himself to Richard Pryor and George Carlin.
Letterman pressed Morgan again, asking, “Did you not say what they were upset about?”
To which, Morgan responded, “I don’t remember. That was maybe 50 shows ago.”
