Tracy Morgan Flashes a Smile and a Peace Sign, and Offers Thanks for Support

The comedian appears in good spirits after leaving hospital

Tracy Morgan flashed a smile and a peace sign to photographers outside his home on Monday, in one of the comedian’s first appearances since the June 7 car accident that left him in critical condition.

“I’m O.K.,” he said. “I love you very much. Thank you. I appreciate everything.”

The 30 Rock star has been released from rehabilitation and will continue his recovery efforts at home, his representative told Entertainment Tonight. “He asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point,” the rep said. “He would also appreciate some privacy during this crucial point in his recovery.”

Morgan has launched a lawsuit against Walmart for negligence leading to the accident, which took place when one of the store’s trucks slammed into the limousine the comedian was riding in. The Walmart driver had allegedly fallen asleep at the wheel.

Plaintiffs also include comedian Ardie Fuqua, Morgan’s assistant Jeffrey Millea and Millea’s wife Krista Millea.
