... and proceeded to get himself in more trouble.

Performing in New York City, the 30 Rock star warned audience members not to "mess with women who have retarded kids" because "them young retarded males is strong. They're strong like chimps."

As the crowd groaned, Morgan joked about hooking up with "a cripple."

In response to these remarks, Peter Berns - CEO of The Arc, a nonprofit organization that serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities - has issued the following statement:

"Tracy Morgan should apologize immediately. This quote is far too offensive to be excused as comedy, and it is very hurtful to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Mr. Morgan has an incredibly powerful platform from which to fix this, and if he's learned anything in the last few weeks, he can't bomb this apology."

Should Morgan apologize for these new jokes?
