Tracy Morgan's Homophobic Rant Returns
By Alex Taylor Williams
If you haven't seen or heard about Tracy Morgan's derogatory and homophobic remarks during a standup performance in Nashville last summer, you won't have the fortune of missing out: it will soon be recreated on the actor's hit show 30 Rock.
The Huffington Post reports that the headline-making event will be part of a forthcoming episode featuring Tina Fey and the whole 30 Rock gang.
Following the initial incident, Morgan issued a public apology, however we're wondering if the upcoming episode reignite another backlash from the LGBT community.
MSNBC's openly gay anchor Thomas Roberts, who will appear on the show, stated, "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."
