Tracy Morgan responds to Alec Baldwin's racially charged rant

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.
