Tracy Morgan not emotionally ready to watch ‘SNL’ tribute

    Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan still hasn’t watched the tribute performed for him on last month’s “Saturday Night Live” 40th anniversary show after he was badly injured in a car accident.

    An attorney for Morgan tells The Associated Press on Friday that the former “SNL” star isn’t emotionally ready yet to watch the segment.

    Morgan’s “30 Rock” co-stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin did a short piece sending him their support.

    Attorney Benedict Morelli says Morgan was “incredibly moved” by the gesture but hasn’t watched the segment.

    A limo van carrying Morgan and several friends last June was rear-ended by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike. Fellow comedian James McNair was killed. Morgan suffered a traumatic brain injury, broken ribs and a broken leg.
