Tracy Morgan stopped by The Late Show With David Letterman last night, and, unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for that whole homophobic rant he went on in Nashville last June to come up.

Letterman asked Morgan if he apologized because he "made a mistake," or if he apologized "because people were upset," to which Morgan  didn't really offer a straight answer.

But, he did have this to say:

"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 added later that it was a "big, big misunderstanding."

While it's good that Morgan has and is apologizing for the remarks he made, we kinda have to call bullshit on the whole "misunderstanding" excuse because it's pretty hard to misinterpret someone stating that they would "pull out a knife and stab" their son if he were gay.
