Here's some news that might shock and offend you:
30 Rock isn't coming back until January. Apparently, Tina Fey has to give birth before she can return to work! Pfft!
Okay, no, that's not it. The real disturbing news is that Tina confirms that her staff is considering doing an episode based off Tracy Morgan's homophobic scandal, in which he told an audience in Nashville that he'd kill his son if he acted "gay" and then spent weeks after that apologizing for his rant.
When asked plainly about the controversy being written into the show, Tina said:
"It’s the kind of story that even if it happened to someone else, we would probably turn it into a Tracy story. So we may use it."
We don't think that's such a good idea and if we were Tracy, we'd strongly object to the storyline. He's worked this hard to put the matter behind him - why would he want to rehash it?
Besides, we can't imagine how they would rework the situation that would make it any level of acceptable to say the things that he said.
There's no joke to be made here. Let it be.
