30 Rock mocks own star’s gay dilemma

2012-01-20 11:02

New York – TV comedy 30 Rock has mocked one of its own cast members.

The show often finds laughs in real-life events in the show business world it inhabits.

Yesterday’s edition focused on Tracy Morgan, who found himself in real-life hot water last June after making anti-gay remarks during a stand-up appearance in Nashville, Tennessee.

On the 30 Rock episode, Morgan character Tracy Jordan sparked a protest after making a couple of ridiculous gay-oriented jokes during a concert date.

His boss was forced to apologise for him. The Tina Fey character explained to the media he’s incapable of hate against any group – he’s just an idiot.

In real life, Morgan publicly apologised to gay advocacy groups shortly after his rant.
