When Sarah first brought you the news of Tracy Morgan‘s outrageously bigoted rant, she mentioned how weird it was that Tracy works so closely with Tina Fey on 30 Rock. If you didn’t know, Tina Fey is awesome in nearly every way, including not being a homophobic prick. If you were also curious about what Tina’s reaction would be to Tracy’s rants and rambles, here it is:
“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.”
As usual, I think Tina Fey handled this in a really classy way. She’s another one of those people who can’t do anything wrong. I’m not so sure about Tracy though. After his original words, his apology fell just a little short, right?
