After being widely criticized for anti-gay comments in a recent comedy routine, "30 Rock" star Tracy Morgan plans to meet with gay youths in New York and will return to Tennessee, where he made the comments, to apologize, reports The New York Times’ ArtsBeat blog.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation said Morgan has agreed to meet in New York with parents of children who were killed in hate crimes and with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teens whose parents have either abandoned or shunned them, the story says.

Morgan will be accompanied by the entrepreneur Russell Simmons to Tennessee, where plans to apologize to people he offended and tape a public service announcement, the article says.

As previously reported, Morgan apologized for an anti-gay set of jokes during a recent Nashville performance.
