Tracy Morgan tells James Corden Covid-19 pandemic is 'equalizer', urges people to care for each other
The exchange even had James Corden, who was filming the episode from his home garage, getting all the feels as Tracy Morgan continued to share life lessons
During his appearance on tonight's 'The Late Late Show with James Corden', Emmy Award-winning actor Tracy Morgan got highly emotional as he spoke about the need for empathy in the world today.
As Covid-19 continues to mercilessly devour the lives of millions across the world, the '30 Rock' actor called to attention the urgent need for people to be more understanding, loving an caring of each other.
"We're all in this together," he said on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden', adding that it "doesn't matter what color you are, what status you got, how much money you got."
In a very emotional conversation, he said that the coronavirus crisis is the "equalizer" for our world today. "It is shame that it took a pandemic for us to love each other, taking care of each other," Morgan said. The exchange even had Corden, who was filming the episode from his home garage, getting all the feels as Tracy continued to share life lessons.
"If you're not here to help, you're here to hurt," he said, calling more and more people to care for each other regardless of the differences between them.
Morgan, who will be next seen as Captain Caveman in 'Scoob!', touched the heart of many of his fans, who agreed with what he had to share.
"Tracy Morgan on @latelateshow is 🔥🔥" tweeted one fan. "Beautiful words from @TracyMorgan tonight on #TheLateLateShow 🙏🙌" concurred another. "@TracyMorgan kudos to you on a heartwarming & hysterical interview with James CordenSearch Results

Many of his fans thanked him for spreading the simple yet important message. "Saw you on James Corden Thursday night. Loved how passionately you spoke to the world about caring for each other! Keep smiling and stay safe- we love you! Robin and Barry," tweeted another fan."
"Thank you @TracyMorgan we definitely need to love one another more and take care of each other. #TheLateLateShow," said a fan. Other thought his speech was inspiring. "@TracyMorgan Listening to you on @latelateshow was inspirational."
Morgan got a new lease of life after enduring a critical accident six years ago in June 2014 on the New Jersey Turnpike. In that accident, he lost his longtime friend James McNair.
He recently honored the nurse who took care of his after the serious injuries he sustained. He awarded the nurse named Gina Domingo with the 'Tracy Morgan Award for Excellence in Rehabilitation Nursing,' reports ABC7 New York.
Domingo, who has been caring for patients for the last 30 years, is a nurse at Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute and works in the brain trauma unit.
"She wouldn't even look at me, she said everything's gonna be alright," Morgan recalled on the late-night show. Overwhelmed by his past and the long and painful journey he has been through, the actor almost started crying but controlled himself on the screen.
We hope his earnest message reaches more and more people. Especially right now when the world needs a little bit more love and a lot less hate.
