Tracy Morgan, 'Late Show'Tracy Morgan had a rough summer, twice offending people with comments he made during his live stand-up shows. He talked about the apologies he made on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), where David Letterman said he was on Morgan's side.

"I apologized because people came to the show and they paid money and they got upset about it," Morgan said. "That wasn't my intention to hurt anybody with my humor."

He went on to say, "We live in a really sensitive time right now." Morgan is insistent that he's not homophobic, and further stated that he doesn't recall exactly what was said in that particular show that offended someone.

Tina Fey and NBC Chief Condemn Tracy Morgan's Homophobic Rant

Tina FeyTracy Morgan has apologized after he reportedly indulged in a homophobic and sexist rant during a recent standup show in Nashville. The '30 Rock' star said he "clearly went too far and was not funny in any context."

Now Morgan's '30 Rock' boss and co-star, Tina Fey, says she didn't think it was funny either. In a statement to TMZ.com, she said she was glad Morgan had apologized, but admitted it was "disturbing."

"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," she said. "It also 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.

She concluded pointedly: "I hope for his sake that Tracy's apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian co-workers 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."
