TNT wasted no time apologizing for Tracy Morgan's suggestive comments about Sarah Palin Thursday night. Morgan, star of NBC's 30 Rock sitcom, said during an appearance on TNT's Inside the NBA Thursday that he fantasized about the former U.S. vice presidential candidate and Governor of Alaska. TNT's pregame crew of Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson laughed nervously.Here's the video (via Allahpundit).
"It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments," said Turner spokesman Jeff Pomeroy in a statement.
What a laugh riot!
There was a time when such lewd behavior would result in people being fired and shunned by polite society. Now that were live in the Era of Civility, it'll probably get Morgan rewarded and celebrated by the Palin haters.
