Comedian Tracy Morgan has told Rosie O'Donnell that he would be okay if his son turned out to be gay.

Morgan made his remarks while discussing the controversy that followed last summer's comic routine in which Morgan condoned anti-gay bullying and said he would stab his son to death if he found out the was gay. Morgan, a star of NBC's 30 Rock, has subsequently apologized for his rant.

Appearing on O'Donnell's The Rosie Show, O'Donnell told Morgan that she knew he wasn't anti-gay.

“I know you're not homophobic, because – news flash! – I'm a lesbian,” O'Donnell said.

“I've had gay family members,” Morgan said. “I felt hurt because people at my show was hurt.”

“I want to make this place a little bit better than it was when I got here,” he added.

“So, I know that was never your intent [to hurt anyone]. I knew it, right. And I don't speak on behalf of all the gay community, I only speak on behalf of me, but I forgive you, honey,” O'Donnell said. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Morgan also joked: “If my son was gay, I wouldn't be mad at him, just ask him to decorate the house.”
