On Sunday, Tracy Morgan's triumphant return to the stage at the 2015 Emmys was applauded by almost everyone — key word being almost.
It's been 15 months since the Saturday Night Live alum's horrific car accident which resulted in the death of his longtime friend James McNair, AKA Uncle Jimmy Mack. So sad!

James was the only fatality after a Walmart truck crashed into the comedian's limo in New Jersey — and it appears the deceased's family has blasted the 30 Rock actor for not mentioning his late mentor in Sunday's speech.
In a recent interview, Uncle Jimmy Mack's sister Pamela stated:
The driver who caused the deadly car accident that seriously injured Tracy Morgan wants all criminal charges against him dropped!
Kevin Roper, who was driving a truck for Walmart and hadn't slept in 28 hours when he caused a multi-vehicle crash on June 7, 2014, wants to walk free from criminal prosecution, according to his lawyer.

Roper seriously injured Morgan — the comedian was in a wheelchair for more than five months after the wreck — and killed Morgan's friend, James "Uncle Jimmy Mack" McNair.
Now, Roper's lawyer David Jay Glassman has told reporters his client doesn't wish to face criminal prosecution, arguing that Roper won't get a fair trial due to extensive national media coverage about the crash:
Say what now?!
On Friday, it was revealed that Tracy Morgan reportedly received $90 million dollars from his Walmart settlement after fellow comedian Damon Wayans dropped this specific bit of news during a radio interview. Whoa!
While talking about how comic performers who are financially independent can do comedy their own way, the My Wife and Kids actor highlighted the Saturday Night Live alum's recent surge in income.
