The fallout from Tracy Morgan’s anti-gay slurs is getting worse. Although the comic apologized for jokes in a recent Nashville stand-up act, his “30 Rock” co-star Tina Fey was not amused: “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 in a statement. Chris Rock originally tweeted support for Morgan’s freedom to offend, but backtracked Saturday: “When Tracy says something I usually don’t take it anymore serious than I would a statement from Gary Busey or Flavor Flav . . . but after reading everything Tracy said wow, I get it. That [stuff] wasn’t called for and I don’t support it at all.”
