One other expressed, “Tina fey actually produced a complete episode of unbreakable kimmy schmidt about how idiotic individuals are who converse out concerning the offensive nature of dressing up as different races. This was years after the blackface in 30 rock. She’s not sorry now, simply scrambling to cowl her a**.” Another mentioned, “So, phony #TinaFey needs individuals to consider that regardless that #30Rock ran from 2006 to 2013, hardly the 19th century, she is just simply now cognizant that together with blackface on the present she wrote, acted on and govt produced was a foul thought and hurtful?
