Tina Fey: Tracy Morgan's Homophobic Rant was 'Disturbing'

Tina Fey has responded to her 30 Rock co-star Tracy Morgan‘s homophobic rant that took place at a comedy show in Nashville last week.

The 41-year-old actress and writer told E! Online in a statement, “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.”

Tina says his rant “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 coworkers on 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.”

According to the New York Times, Tracy released this statement: “I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context.”

30 Rock co-star Cheyenne Jackson also responded, telling Out, “I am disgusted and appalled by [his] homophobic rant. The devastating repercussions of hate-filled language manifest in very real ways for today’s LGBTQ youth. I’ve known Tracy for two years, sent many long hours with him on set, and I want to believe that this behavior is not at the core of who he is. I’m incredibly disappointed by his actions, and hope that his apology is sincere.”

Tracy is doing well and taking some much needed time to recover after the surgery. He is looking forward to going back to work after the holidays,” said a rep for the 42-year-old comedian.

Tracy underwent the surgery around December 10 and will be out two or three episodes of the NBC comedy.

Executive producer Tina Fey and the writing team plan to address his absence “by saying he has some sort of a meltdown because of a good thing that’s happened to him,” EW reports.

Earlier this year, Tracy‘s 30 Rock co-star Grizz Chapman also had a kidney transplant.

Tracy Morgan Covers 'GQ' August 2010

Tracy Morgan is looking devilish as one of GQ‘s three August 2010 cover stars (Zach Galifianakis and Paul Rudd are on the other two). Here are some select quotes from the three funnymen:

Paul on becoming a successful actor: “I’ve never considered myself to be too much of a comedian. I’ve never considered myself to be too much of anything. I just lucked out and got to work with some really funny people, and somehow have been able to parlay it into a lot of comedies.”

Zach on a love scene for a serious role: “I’ve had a scene where I’m supposed to kiss somebody, and I went for it with the actress. It was a movie called Visioneers, with Mia Maestro. Google her. She’s really nice. She was not going for it. I think a couple of takes I went in with my tongue already out of my mouth. It was like a plane coming in for a landing. And then it was as if someone had cemented her mouth shut.”

Zach on being built for comedy: “I used to be really cute. I could send you earlier photos where I’m stunning. But I’ve gained about twenty pounds over the past two years, and the more weight I’ve put on, the more success I’ve had. If you drew a diagram of weight gain and me getting more work, a mathematician would draw some conclusions from that.”

Tracy on how he would make Jay Leno‘s show funny: “A Russian bear on a bike. Riding around Christopher Cross as he sings ‘Sailing.’”
