Tracy Morgan met with homeless gay teenagers in New York today in the wake of his recent homophobic rant during a comedy set in Nashville.

On June 3, the comedian sparked outrage after joking that he’d kill his son if he were homosexual. Afterward, Morgan apologized for going “too far” and said he wasn’t a “hateful person.”

Today, the “30 Rock” star spoke with victims of anti-gay violence during a sit-down coordinated by GLAAD at The Ali Forney Center, which provides services for displaced LGBT youths.

Jayden Love and Raciel Castillo, young people forced to the streets after coming out of the closet, shared their stories with Morgan.

The comedian will return to Tennessee on June 21 to apologize in person to those he offended and to meet with local gay rights organizations.
