The women of The View discussed comedian Tracy Morgan's vile, homophobic rant at a comedy club in Nashville recently, as part of their Hot Topics segment on Monday.

Okay, so Whoopi is saying everyone is just five seconds away from choosing to say the most heinous things imaginable about a group of people, all for the sakes of shiz and giggles?
Sherri Shepherd, who plays Morgan's wife on Tina Fey's sitcom 30 Rock, made the point that because of Morgan's antics his costars and bosses were negatively impacted.
