Hollywood actor Tracy Morgan has the Internet’s full attention. The comedian turned into an instant trending topic Tuesday after delivering a jaw-dropping “Today Show” interview.
Morgan pulled through for a video interview with “Today Show” co-host Hoda Kotb. During the Q&A, Morgan went all out promoting his “The Last O.G.” series by dishing out intimate quarantine sex stories.
Morgan explained that he’s impregnated his wife three times during quarantine — a claim NBC needs to run by the next medical expert to appear on air — and went into the couple’s role-playing. “She’s playing a young maiden whose grandfather was infected with coronavirus and I’m the scientist who discovered the cure and she’ll do anything to save her grandfather’s life. And I mean anything.” (The Big Lead)
It didn’t take long before social media went off-off on the comedian’s appearance. Twitter exploded with hilarious co-signs and backlash over his comments.
Wait, There’s More
After mounted anticipation, Tracy’s “The Last O.G.” returns for its third season tonight. The show features a slew of familiar faces including actress Tiffany Haddish and comedian J.B. Smoove.
The Last O.G. (10:30/9:30c, TBS): Tracy Morgan’s winning comedy of hard laughs in hard times opens its third season six months after Trey (Morgan) is forced to move in with his mom (Amen‘s Anna Maria Horsford) after his food-truck experiment blows up. There’s a Curb Your Enthusiasm vibe when J.B. Smoove moves in as his mom’s new freeloader boyfriend, and later, Saverio “Mocha Joe” Guerro appears as a potential new landlord once Trey goes apartment hunting. Locating an affordable place, he concludes, “is harder than finding a Puerto Rican in a Woody Allen movie.” In the strangest cameo, Mike Tyson manifests as a rooftop O.G. guru, dispensing sage advice to the beleaguered Trey.
