Cheyenne Jackson "Appalled" By Tracy Morgan's Tirade

Tracy Morgan’s 30 Rock costar Cheyenne Jackson, who is gay, said today he’s “appalled” by the comedian’s homophobic tirade, and that “I want to believe” it’s not representative of his true character.

"I am disgusted and appalled by Tracy Morgan's homophobic rant," Jackson said in a statement provided to Out Magazine. "The devastating repercussions of hate-filled language manifest in very real ways for today's LGBTQ youth. I've known Tracy for two years, spent many long hours with him on set, and I want to believe that this behavior is not at the core of who he is. I'm incredibly disappointed by his actions, and hope that his apology is sincere."
