Tina Fey issued a statement about Tracy Morgan’s homophobic rant and apology. Tina, who is also executive producer of 30 Rock, stood by her guy, while pointing out that without gay people Tracy wouldn’t have lines to say, clothes to wear or a printed out paycheck. Read her statement below:

“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.  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.  I hope for his sake that Tracy’s apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian coworkers 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.   The other producers and I pride ourselves on “30 Rock” being a diverse, safe, and fair workplace.”
