30 Rock producer Tina Fey and NBC have both issued apologies for Tracy Morgan's homophobic standup routine in Nashville. NBC's entertainment chief called Morgan's act "reckless" and said the network has "made it clear to him that this kind of thing won't be tolerated." Tina Fey agreed that her costar's anti-gay routine reflected poorly on NBC and 30 Rock, adding that the rant was particularly "disturbing" given that violence in the gay and lesbian community continues to be a real threat. She said her costar is "not a hateful man" and "generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person." She also hoped his apology would be accepted by his gay and lesbian coworkers at 30 Rock, "without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear... or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket."
