Tracy Morgan stuck his foot in his mouth — again.

Only weeks after profusely apologizing to the LGBT community for his homophobic rant at a stand-up performance in Nashville, he managed to offend another group of people: the mentally disabled.

"Don't ever mess with women who have retarded kids," Morgan, 42, said Saturday night at a performance in New York City, as reported by the New York Times. As groans of "uh-oh" were heard in the crowd, he continued, "Them young retarded males is strong. They're strong like chimps."

The 30 Rock star went on to tell a story about an alleged teenage romance he shared with a girl he described as "a cripple" with a prosthetic arm, a mechanical larynx and a portable dialysis machine.

Earlier in the night, Morgan said something went through his mind "that I can't share with y'all." When the audience encouraged him to spill, he said, "I can't. I just got out of controversy man. This is diabolical."

"I love you all so much," he said. "Did I tell you that tonight? I've been in trouble lately, and this was big for me that you all came out."
