Tracy Morgan, who just got over a big-time case of career jeopardy after remarking during a stand-up routine that he’d likely stab any son of his who turned out to be gay, seems to have gone and stepped in it again.
This time, the comedian and star of NBC’s “30 Rock,” offended an entirely different segment of the population.
“Don’t ever mess with women who have retarded kids,” said Morgan during a Saturday (June 25) performance at New York’s Caroline’s Comedy Club. “Them young retarded males is strong. They’re strong like chimps.”
He also did a bit about having sex with “a cripple” with a dialysis machine and a prosthetic arm.
The comment prompted some groans from the audience, according to the New York Times. And, reports E!, the Arc — a group that serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities — is asking Morgan for a public apology.
“Mr. Morgan has an incredibly powerful platform from which to fix this, and if he’s learned anything in the last few weeks, he can’t bomb this apology,” said Arc CEO Peter Berns.
What do you think — should Morgan go on another apology tour?
