30 Rock star and professional ridiculous person Tracy Morgan was rushed to the hospital last night in Park City, Utah, where he was attending the Sundance Film Festival. According to reports from the scene, Morgan appeared extremely intoxicated at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards, where he was being honored along with, randomly, Kate Bosworth, AnnaLynne McCord, and documentary filmmaker Stacey Peralta. (Morgan is also at the festival to promote his movie Predisposed.) After leaving the ceremony, Morgan fell unconscious and was then taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
Given Morgan's previous health issues — he has diabetes and received a kidney transplant in 2010 — it doesn't sound like it would be a good idea for him to be drinking at all, let alone getting wasted, but his rep, Morgan Kay, released a statement assuring everyone that no alcohol or drugs were present in the comedian's system:
From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention… He is with his fiancée and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false.
Hopefully that's true, and hopefully Morgan will make a speedy recovery, but how many people believe the "exhaustion" line at this point anymore?
