Tina Fey has issued a statement regarding Tracy Morgan and his rant, calling it disturbing but as the comedic writer that she is sheÂ saysÂ Tracy is too ‘too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person’…lol!
“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 tells E! News in a statement.
Fey went on to say that comic’s 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,” adding, “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.”
