Tina Fey: Tracy Morgan Isn't "A Hateful Man"

Posted Saturday June 11, 2011 3:17 PM GMT

Under fire after hitting headlines following his recent comedy show's anti-gay rant, Tracy Morgan can certainly use all of the support he can muster at the current time.

The 42-year-old actor received kind words from one of his "30 Rock" co-stars, as Tina Fey told TMZ that Morgan isn't a hateful man.

Fey said, "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," adding that he clearly "went too far."

Though she clearly doesn't approve of Morgan's stage rant, Tina said that it "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."

The "Saturday Night Live" alum added, "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."
