Family of the late Jimmy Mack say they haven’t heard from Tracy Morgan since fatal crash
Tracy Morgan’s appearance at the Emmy’s was met by a standing ovation.
But not everyone is singing his praises.
The family of James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, the comedian who died in the accident that Morgan was seriously injured in, is criticizing him.
“Tracy Morgan ain’t s**t,” writes McNair’s son, Jamel “Jshyne” McNair, on his Facebook page following the Emmys.
According to a report by New York Daily News, the McNair family have yet to hear from Morgan since the horrific accident 15 months ago.
“I understand it’s been a great ordeal for Tracy over the last 15 months,” McNair’s sister Pamela said. “I just feel in some form or fashion, he should have acknowledged my brother — his mentor — because he lost his life.”
“If I had a friend who died in an accident with me in the car … My best friend’s children would be the first ones I reach out to when they died,” son Jamel writes in his Facebook post. “You take the Emmy stage and give a speech and tell jokes in front of thousands of people. But you don’t show up to celebrate the life of your best friend.”
“There’s no excuse for this type of behavior … My sister and I have yet to hear from Tracy Morgan and that’s real,” he continues. “Send a smoke signal, give a call, text — send a d*** pigeon.”
In the past, Morgan has said that he watched McNair’s funeral on YouTube, and when he was on “The Today Show” in June, he spoke of McNair, saying: “The loss of my friend will never heal.”
“I know there’s a healing process, mentally and emotionally. I’m sure being in that limo and seeing certain things, it was highly traumatic for him. But just take a minute along the way to acknowledge my brother,” says Pamela McNair. “He has children, siblings, a big family all bearing that same pain.”
