“Because of my real-life pregnancy, we don’t go back on the air until January. I’m hoping that Tracy will have, and the world will have, forgotten about that by then. He from the first has gone around very sincerely and done his best to try to make up for the foolishness. … It’s the kind of story that even if it happened to someone else, we would probably turn it into a Tracy story. So we may use it.”

Tina Fey talks to Deadline Hollywood about Tracy Morgan‘s homophobic jokes during his standup performance in Nashville in June. Tracy apologized almost immediately for the dreadful things he said — like how if his son came out to him as gay, Tracy would stab him — and Tina publicly chastised the comic as well for his “disturbing” jokes. Now she says the incident may be written into an episode of “30 Rock,” which certainly sounds like it would be believable. I’m not sure anything about it is especially funny, though. Do you think “30 Rock” doing an episode about homophobic jokes would be a good idea? [Deadline.com]Want to contact the writer of this post? {encode=”jessica@thefrisky.com” title=”Email her”}!
