Tina Fey

Tracy's Rant Was 'Violent,' 'Disturbing'

6/10/2011 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tina Fey says she was disturbed by the "violent imagery" in Tracy Morgan's homophobic stand-up act in Nashville -- but insists her "30 Rock" co-star is not a "hateful man."

In a statement to TMZ, Tina said she's glad Tracy apologized -- but explained, "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."

Fey continued, "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."

NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt claims the network has warned Morgan about the incident -- saying, "Tracy’s comments reflect negatively on both '30 Rock' and NBC – two very all-inclusive and diverse organizations – and we have made it clear to him that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated."

I personally tell my boss every single day '**** you you festering volcano of HPV' and I'm still employed. Shrug...

As for you bleedingbutts- I was beaten so badly by a tranny I lost the hearing in my right ear, and you don't see ME running around crying homo-abuse. What about us heteros that have to suffer at the hands of you scathing viper tongued 'angry' gehs that like to stir the ****? We get it, you're pist off because you like to stick your ***** in ****...and some people don't see that as normal - but that aint my fault...I live in Vancouver and I'm discriminated against on an HOURLY basis here for being a straight white girl. But ya won't see that in the papers. Maybe I need to have a parade...

STFU - you're gonna pray? Isn't it religion that ****** you in the ass in the first place? Hrm...

Homosexuality is absolutely a choice. You make a decision to act upon this desire which is intrinsically wrong, then you are proud of it and label yourself something special: gay. People luck morals and are going to choose to be gay/lesbian, their choice but it is still wrong.Why is homosexuality being forced down on general public. It has nothing to do with democracy and freedom. It is a bogus propaganda and is being mass advertised so much that people are desensitized about it and forget the moral importance and consequences.

This act is wrong according to the Bible, which is the word of the true living God! It is a morally wrong act and has been wrong throughout centuries in many cultures and civilizations. It is not a fulfilling lifestyle and is a curse, even if you don't recognized it. Accept Jesus Christ as your savior, He will free you from your sins and will bless your life and fill your life with completeness and fulfillment that you have never experienced before. Christ does not judge, He loves each and everyone of us. Jesus Christ is the true living God, your life is not a coincidence or accident, there is a reason why you are born. There is only one important decision one must make in life and it is to accept Jesus Christ. No one goes to heaven without accepting Christ, Who died for our sins and overcame the curse of death. Read the Bible with open heart. Don't be blind, seek the truth!

Brandon your ugly speech is a hell of a lot worse than jokes in a comedy setting. If you want to get with it, I invite you to bust a move. Good thing you are on the internet because your punk ass would not say chit. Now you go back to the slim you came from.

You are inciting HATE and the bast_ards who support you can KMA, but then that is no insult to many, they would probably enjoy it. Just keep your chit on the internet and don't ever make the mistake of saying that crap in front of people. ********.

Now lets see how many CONCERNED people will tell you how wrong your speech is and this is not a comedy setting. That is the damn reason people are the way they are because some can say, do, think anything about certain people and no one gives a chit.
You are not in a comedy setting POS you are putting this around the world, but then, you must be use to getting away with crap.

You have been given a forum to spew hate so take your best shot and make yourself think you are a real man. Blacks cannot change their color, but you can control where you get your satisfaction.

I'm just wondering if we can joke about gays, blacks, latinos. caucasians, or anybody at all? I cannot stand the easily offended. We should be able to say whatever we want when we want. Damn It, nothing pisses me off more than easily offended, oversensitive, weak crybabies. Just because the a-hole said something hat offended you, doesn't mean you should go calling for him to be fired. Forget what eh said and move the f*ck on with your lives. Words cannot describe how annoyed I get about this bullsh*t.

HangoverPictures.com about an hour ago There are no limits in comedy, look at Family Guy and South Park. First edgy comedy were Polish jokes, blonde jokes and black jokes. Which evolved into political, other ethnic and religious jokes and now gay jokes. Jokes are going to always offend some people with thin skin. If you can't laugh at yourself and take a joke then don'*****ch the show.

However, if someone is just spewing hateful garbage under the umbrella of comedy and not trying to be funny then that's not comedy anyway.
-------------------------------------------------------------
agree! but maybe its because Family Guy n American Dad and shows like that make fun of EVERY1, all races, all religions, all sexuality n genders n disabilities n jus everything is what kinda makes it in good humor because obviously its funny but I agree 100% with you. People need a little thicker skin but this guy wasnt funny n I think he was just being hateful when he was suppose to be funny.

Brandon 51 minutes ago I sincerely hope snakes will rise from Hell and devour all naggers. A bunch of worthless, fatherless, nickel and dime thieves that think they can live off the government. Go back to Africa and live off those governments. Live with the traditions of some of the tribes where albinos have their limbs cut-off because they believe it to be some magical potion mixer; where young girls have their breasts beaten flat with a hot stick and their genitals are disfigured. Yea, whites made a huge mistake thinking they could get free labor from monkeys. hey...new reality series, "Monkeys Gone Wild"...starring the n****r-f*****g Kardashians!!! ON National Geographic!!

This is such fn pc bs. It's a fn COMEDY ACT people. Have any of you that are whining and complaining ever listened to Corey Holcomb or George Carlin or Andrew Dice Clay or Eddie Murphy or Richard Pryor or Sam Kinison? Get a fn grip and find something more useful to do with your time.

And thats the truth    

Shay 3 hours ago Tina has said some pretty nasty things about individual persons. But, since it is popular to "hate" those people she jokes about, it is considered funny and acceptable. But, generalized "hate filled" jokes towards nobody in particular, is not OK. Strange how society works.

She shouldn't be casting stones.....

I could not agree with you more. Thanks for sharing.
