Tracy Morgan’s Lewd Remark About Sarah Palin Prompts Apology From TNT

January 28, 2011  •  Post A Comment

TNT has issued an apology for a lewd remark by Tracy Morgan about Sarah Palin during Thursday’s "Inside the NBA" broadcast, reports The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.

According to the piece, co-host Charles Barkley asked "30 Rock" star Morgan during a pre-game chat, "Sarah Palin’s good looking, isn’t she?" Morgan responded, "Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin, she’s good masturbation material."

TNT apologized for the comment, noting, "It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments."

  1. An ‘apology’ isn’t enough. This sort of stupidity should be rewarded by a prompt firing. Somebody on presumably “National Television” is supposed to know what sort of conduct is acceptable, and it is obvious that this idiot does not belong there.

  2. Who would you fire? Barkley for asking the question or the producer for allowing Morgan on the show as a guest?

  3. The problem is that cultural standards are down the toilet. When eveyone is coarse and shocking,then anything goes. Who really knows where the line is? Good taste? That’s so old school.
    Even VP Joe Biden has had a few misspeaks the last few years.
    Conservatives should be glad Morgan didn’t say “jack-off.”
    But that might have been confused with Jack Abramoff.
    Maybe Morgan should have said “jerk-off.”
    Lots of jerks on both sides of the aisle.

  4. If u invite Tracy on, u will get Tracy responses. U ask Ricky verbals to host a show , u will get Ricky. Amazing how ppl get offended so daily and call for firings just cause u don’t like what they said. Red u should be banned from Internet because I don’t like ur comment here.

  5. lets see, the remark was made from a person that u expect would say something funny and lewd and that is exactly what u got! it was on cable, and demographics of game are male adults..so whats the problem here? great joke tracy!!!
