We can definitely see the humor in this…although we wish Tracy would come off as a bit more sincere with his apologies!
Back in June, we were NOT impressed when Tracy Morgan made the ill-advised decision to go on a homophobic rant during a live show.
Fortunately, he made a strong effort to show his remorse, and we were able to forgive him…although we weren't thrilled when he sorta backtracked on his apology.
Now, we're hearing that Tracy's controversy will make its way into a storyline on 30 Rock this season.
Here's what MSNBC's Thomas Roberts had to say about it:
"Well, you know how a lot of their episodes mirror their lives … They've incorporated [Morgan's rant] into the Tracy Jordan storyline. Liz Lemon writes Tracy's apology on the show and says he's not a homophobe, he's an idiot. That offends idiots, so while NBC is being picketed by the LBGT community, now it's also being picketed by idiots led by Denise Richards. She's the leader of the idiots."
As long as Tracy continues to behave, we'll allow ourselves to laugh at this. There's no denying the fact that it's a VERY funny idea!
What do U think? Is 30 Rock making the right move by poking fun at his homophobic rant?
