Tracy Morgan is clearly ready to laugh off the June 2014 traffic collision that left him seriously injured and took the life of his friend and fellow comedian, James McNair.
“Saturday Night Live” alum Morgan appeared on “Conan” Thursday night and told host Conan O’Brien that he’s “not even mad” at Kevin Roper, the Walmart truck driver who struck the limo bus carrying Morgan, McNair and others.
“I forgave him, and I’m not even mad at him no more,” Morgan declared, before noting that the residents of his new neighborhood might have a problem with Roper.
“No, I’m not mad at him, I forgave him, but you know who is mad at him? All my white neighbors,” Morgan declared, before mimicking their outrage. “‘If you wouldn’t have hit his ass, he wouldn’t be living next door to me! I’ve got daughters!'”
Morgan went on to further riff about his new ‘hood.
“I was driving my Lamborghini the other day there, and a young white dude said, ‘Hey mister, how fast does she go?’ I said, ‘I drive this sh– like a pimp,” Morgan said. “Thirty miles per hour, so everyone in the neighborhood could see it. They ain’t never seen a black motherf—er in a Lamborghini!”
Watch Morgan display the power of forgiveness and humor in the video.
