Tracy Morgan's Lewd Comment About Sarah Palin Forces TNT Apology


TNT has issued an apology for comment made by 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin during a live Inside the NBA broadcast on Thursday.

"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," a  Turner spokesman said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

The incident happened during a pre-game chat when co-host Charles Barkley asked the actor, "Sarah Palin's good looking, isn't she?"

Morgan replied, "Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin, she's good masturbation material."
