Tracy Morgan shocked the entertainment world Friday when reports hit that he'd let out a homophobic and sexist rant during a standup show in Nashville last Friday night. The comedian apologized, saying he "clearly went too far and was not funny in any context." Morgan's co-star, Tina Fey, didn't think it was funny either. In a statement to TMZ.com, she said she was glad Morgan apologized but admitted it was "disturbing."

"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," she said. "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.

She concluded: "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."
