Tracy Morgan’s Latest Jokes Offend The Disabled

NEW YORK (AP) — Tracy Morgan had just finished apologizing for his anti-gay jokes, and now the comedian is in hot water again.

In his standup act in New York last weekend, Morgan mocked the mentally disabled, according to The New York Times. This has led to a demand for an apology from the “30 Rock” star by a group promoting the rights of the mentally and physically disabled.

Morgan’s wisecracks reportedly included a warning not to “mess with women who have retarded kids.”

His remarks are “far too offensive to be excused as comedy,” Peter Berns, head of The Arc, said earlier this week. He called for an immediate apology.

Thus far, Morgan has offered no response.

Earlier this month, he apologized for a homophobic rant made during a stand-up routine in Nashville.

    Why such high standards of decency for a dirty comic? There’s a reason (http://bit.ly/karLX3) why they call it performance
