TNT Network Apologizes for Tracy Morgan’s Comment About Sarah Palin


TNT should be ashamed for even bringing up the topic … like they didn’t think the answer would digress to vile piggery. Isn’t it something that the age old question of “Ginger or Mary Anne” would in 2011 digress to the gutter of a “masturbation” comment. We’ve come a long way baby, not.

The TNT network has apologized for the cruse and disgusting comments made by 30 Rock and SNL cast member, Tracy Morgan. The uncalled for comment was made during TNT’s “Inside the NBA” pregame show between the the Miami Heat and the NY Knicks. Tracy Morgan was asked by co-hosts Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley, ” “[Morgan's] the only one who can settle it. Tina Fey or Sarah Palin?”  Morgan’s lack of judgement response was the following … “Yo, let me tell you something about Sarah Palin. She’s good masturbation material.”

The statement from TNT was as follows:

“It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments. We apologize for any embarrassment or offense it may have caused.”

Yet another example of why not to give a live microphone to some one with no jusgement 


During yesterday’s live broadcast, co-hosts Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley handed 30 Rock‘s Morgan a microphone and asked him to settle a bet: Tina Fey or Sarah Palin? “Me and him have this argument all the time, ” crowed Smith, referring to Barkley. “[Morgan's] the only one who can settle it. Tina Fey or Sarah Palin?” They were clearly not asking which woman was smarter or faster in a race.

Just curious TNT, you are a sports network doing a pre-game show in Madison Square Garden with a much hyped game between the Heat and the Knicks and you felt the need to delve into raunch? Lebron and Wade against the surprising Knicks who have suddenly found game this year and this is the direction you took the conversation? Shameful. It’s rather a lame apology when you had to have known that the direction of one of your hosts asking  Sarah Palin or  Tina Fey would lead into the gutter. In many respects I have to Agree with Anne Althouse, Tracy Morqagn did exactly what one would expect of him. It is your two co-hosts and your director that should be apologizing for taking the TNT pregame show into the gutter. Shameful indeed.

      what do you expect from that bunch. Sir Charles would rather have a prostitute as would the other piece of crap. As a matter of fact Sir Charles has already been arrested for being a “John” one time that we know of. So, what do you expect from these scum puppies.

      I wonder how much further down our culture must go before it hits bottom? People are beginning act like real low lives. Is it the drugs that they use or what?

      The most shocking thing about this is that they apologized!

      I had no idea that anyone over there had the self-awareness or understanding to ascertain appropriate from inappropriate, much less the humility to acknowledge something as offensive enough to render an apology.

      who cares about sarah palin, why do you only report when someone bashes a tea party member and not the other way around. Sarah is a dumb (edit). I can not wait to get into politics I’ll trash talk her and other retards like her when ever I want and never get into f(edit) trouble.
      SM: Just like a screw ball, moonbat liberal who can’t string a thought together without profanity. Didn’t you get the memo from your President to be more civil?

      Obviously you do care about Palin and she ruffles your feathers otherwise you would not have commented. Just another case of Palin Derangement Syndrome. Nice use of the word “retard”. You sad pathetic SOB. Those who are mentally challenged are miles ahead of you. Go take your meds and crawl back under the rock you came from.

      #5: i seriously doubt you have the mental capability to do more than eat your own feces.
      Sarah Palin has more integrity than your whole family including ancestors would be able to muster. you are just another back jumping democrat coward who talks big but you are actually inder 5′ tall so that makes you have little man syndrome.
      obama could tell you right now that dog crap tastes good and you would run out as fast as you can to start gobbling. weak minded fool.

      #5- Honestly, the most satisfaction one can receive for the majority of us who blog here is to watch Libtards like yourself get your SpongeBob Squarepants Boxers all in a knot over Sarah Palin.

      Who lives in a pineapple under the Sea? Obviously you do, A**wipe. Get a Life.

      I am so disgusted with Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley. I lived in NC when Smith played basketball there and I loved to watch him play and was so happy that he landed the job with TNT. Charles Barkley played basketball at Auburn. I’m from Alabama so I was proud of him also. I am so sorry they stooped to this unprofessional conduct. Whether they like Sarah Palin or not, what does that have to do with a basketball game. That kind of talk has no place on TV period. You guys have lost all credibility with most people, if not all. That is if you ever had any.
