(Newser) – Comedian Tracy Morgan returned to the scene of the crime in Nashville today to issue yet another apology to the lesbian and gay community after an anti-gay rant during his June 3 show there drew fire. Morgan was scheduled to address reporters this morning at the Nashville Convention Center after meeting with members of the audience who were offended by his comedy routine and representatives from gay advocacy groups. Morgan was not expected to take questions during the news conference. (Morgan also is expected to participate in a GLAAD anti-bullying public service campaign.)
