Tracy Morgan keeps it real

It looks like live television and Tracy Morgan does not equal appropriate dialog.

Last night before the Heat/Knicks game (on TNT), Tracy Morgan was asked if he thought Sarah Palin was attractive. Morgan responded with “Oh yeah, absolutely.” He could have stopped right there but, Mr. Morgan chose to keep it real and went on to say she was masturbation material as well. Funny stuff. The look on Ernie Johnson’s face was priceless. Morgan has always been the type to speak his mind and I love the guy for it.

TNT however wasn’t laughing and have released this statement.

β€œIt’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.”

Was it inappropriate? Of course it was! That’s why it was funny. Offensive? Not even close. I don’t know too many women who don’t want to look attractive to men. The bigger issue is why was Tracy Morgan asked if he thought Sarah Palin was attractive? You’re just asking for trouble when that happens.

I can hear the Tea Party now. “Negros are masturbating to videos of our women! We want our country back!”

I never understood interventions. What’s the point of being told you drink too much from a room full of reasons why you drink in the first place?
