Alec Baldwin made headlines yet again this weekend after allegedly calling a photographer for the New York Post a racial slur.
On Tuesday, his former “30 Rock” costar and comedian Tracy Morgan called a North Carolina radio show to talk about it.
Baldwin is being accused of calling black photographer G.N. Miller a “crackhead” and a “coon” after a verbal altercation with a reporter from the Post.
In the interview, Morgan sounds quiet and cautious while chastising Baldwin, saying, “If he called somebody a coon, he should apologize.” Adding, “There’s no excuse. You’re in your 50s.”
Morgan is no stranger to hate speech controversy. In 2011, the comedian caught serious heat in the press after a homophobic rant during a stand-up set went public.
He has since apologized.
The New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is currently investigating Baldwin’s tirade.

Oh, Alec Baldwin, you’re like Trump with better politics and hair. Don’t ever change! And who was the object of his Irish temper? Why, none other than New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser, a woman whose charm and compassion can be summed up by the fact New York Magazine describes her as “Madame Defarge.” It’s an emotional time for Baldwin, with ”30 Rock” now careening toward its ending and a strange stalker case hanging over his head. But that didn’t stop Peyser this week from banging out a unique defense of Baldwin’s alleged stalker, Genevieve Sabourin. Sabourin, who is accused of sending harassing emails and showing up uninvited at Baldwin’s homes, was arrested recently for allegedly violating an order of protection issued last spring. (She was released soon after.) But in Peyser’s version of events, “Alec toyed with Genevieve’s womanly affections, treating her to a one-night stand like some kind of cheap whore. Now she wants to expose him for what he is: a cad … Hey, Alec, she says you slept with her! Deal with it, creep.”Continue Reading… … Read More
