Tina Talks Tracy!

Tina Fey Hopes the Gays Accept Tracy Morgan’s Apology for the Sake of His Career

The violent imagery of Tracy’s rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community.

It also doesn’t line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person.

I hope for his sake that Tracy’s apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian co-workers at 30 Rock, without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket.

–Tina Fey wrote in a statement to TMZ, who reports that NBC has scolded Morgan for the homophobic comments he made during his stand-up act.
