Tracy Morgan was rushed to a hospital on Sunday night shortly after being honored at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards in Park City, Utah.
An initial report from TMZ claimed the “30 Rock” star “appeared extremely intoxicated” during a speech he gave at the event at the Sundance Film Festival, and noted that after being “escorted out of the building,” Morgan “fell unconscious.”
But Morgan was not drunk.
A spokesperson for Park City Medical Center later confirmed there were no drugs or booze in Morgan’s system.
And Morgan’s rep said that the comedian’s condition was a result of “a combination of exhaustion and altitude,” adding, “Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100% false.”
Tracy Morgan is OK now!
After being taken to the hospital, Morgan tweeted that he’s back on his feet and heading to work.
It turns out altitude sickness was the culprit.
“Superman ran into a little kyrptonite,” wrote Morgan on Monday.
He explains, “The high altitude in Utah shook up this kid from Brooklyn.”
“Thank U 2 the hospital staff. Back at work shooting 30 Rock,” added the comedian.
