Tracy Morgan’s career continues to hang in the balance after he issued a public apology for his vicious tirade on gay people.

Last Friday night the star of hit NBC show 30 Rock offended many after he launched a torrid of verbal abuse about the LGBT community during a comedy gig in Nashville.

During his set at the Ryman Auditorium he said the following statements:

"Gays need to quit being pussies and not be whining about something as insignificant as bullying.

"Gay is something that kids learn from the media and programming."

“My son better talk to me like a man and not in a gay voice or I'll pull out a knife and stab that little n-gger to death."

"I don't "f*cking care if I piss off some gays, because if they can take a f*cking dick up their ass... they can take a f*cking joke."

Morgan has since released a statement apologising: "I want to apologise to my fans and the gay and lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent standup act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context."

The Ryman Auditorium also released a statement about the set by Morgan in their venue: "The Ryman Auditorium regrets that people were offended by statements made by Tracy Morgan during his June 3 appearance. The Ryman does not control the content presented by people appearing on its stage, nor does it endorse any of the views of, or statements made by, such persons."
