TNT Apologizes for Tracy Morgan’s Crude Sarah Palin Comment

TNT Apologizes for Tracy Morgan’s Crude Sarah Palin Comment

Published March 12, 2011

Tracy Morgan may have a new kidney, but his old mouth still runs unfiltered, as cable network TNT learned when it had to issue an apology via The Hollywood Reporter for his sexually crass comment regarding Sarah Palin.

The incident occurred last Thursday during a live broadcast of Inside the NBA. During pre-game discussion, co-host Charles Barkley asked the 30 Rock star, "Sarah Palin's good looking, isn't she?" To which Morgan replied, "Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin: She's good masturbation material."

In a statement, a Turner spokesman told The Hollywood Reporter, "It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments."

They're lucky Tracy didn't whip out a nipple.
