Tina Fey Issues Statement After '30 Rock' Blackface Episodes Are Pulled

NBC has pulled a total of four episodes of 30 Rock from streaming and syndication.

The decision to pull them from air was a request by co-creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.

“As we strive to do the work and do better in regards to race in America, we believe that these episodes featuring actors in race-changing makeup are best taken out of circulation,” Tina shared in a statement about the request, via TV Line.

She continued, “I understand now that ‘intent’ is not a free pass for white people to use these images. I apologize for pain they have caused. Going forward, no comedy-loving kid needs to stumble on these tropes and be stung by their ugliness. I thank NBCUniversal for honoring this request.”

Season 3’s “Believe in the Stars” and Season 5’s “Christmas Attack Zone,” join Season 5’s “Live Show” and Season 6’s “Live From Studio H”.

The last of the episodes pulled features guest star Jon Hamm donning blackface for a spoof of the racist radio and TV program Amos ‘n’ Andy.

Just last week, it was announced that 30 Rock will returning for an hour-long special. Get the details about it here…

“I feel like I am at an age where all the things I’ve ever thought I wanted to do, I did them,” Tina said. “I always wanted to work at Saturday Night Live, I always wanted to have a show, I always wanted to have children… And I did that. So I feel like I’m trying to be quiet, and take things in. And listen. I’m waiting for something inside me to tell me what the next thing is I want to do.”

“Wait for that,” Oprah advised her. “Don’t tell it. Let it tell you.”

Oprah added, “I’ll tell you, the only number that actually gave me pause was 60. But when I turned 50, my dear friend, Maya Angelou was still alive, and Maya said to me, ‘Babe, the fifties are everything you’ve been meaning to be. It’s everything you thought you might do. This is it. It’s coming in. You’re not even there yet.’”
