Tina Fey Addresses Tracy Morgan's Rant; Police Investigate Brighton Beach Shooting
- Tina Fey responded to Tracy Morgan's homophobic rant and his apology, saying, "I'm glad to hear that Tracy apologized for his comments. Stand-up comics may have the right to 'work out' their material in its ugliest and rawest form in front of an audience, but 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."
