TNT Apologizes For Tracy Morgan's Comments About Sarah Palin

TNT issued an apology Thursday night following risqué comments from 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan on Inside the NBA about Sarah Palin.

Morgan joined Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley from Madison Square Garden. When Smith asked Morgan to pick between Palin and Tina Fey, the comedian responded by saying that Palin was “good masturbation material.”

“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.

There aren’t many things that leave Barkley speechless. This was one of them.
