Actress and show creator Tina Fey has requested 4 episodes of the TV hit “30 Rock” be pulled from airing because they contain characters in blackface. A statement released by Fey said in part, “I understand now that intent is not a free pass for white people to use these images. I apologize for the pain they have caused. Going forward, no comedy-loving kid needs to stumble on these tropes and be stung by their ugliness.” NBCUniversal has agreed to pull the episodes.
