Tina Fey is done with apologizing for everything.

The producer and comedy writer said in an interview with Net-a-Porter  magazine that “There’s a real culture of demanding apologies, and I’m opting out of that.”

Fey spoke about the social media reaction to an episode of her Netflix show, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” where it is revealed that character Jacqueline Voorhees, played by white actress Jane Krakowski,  had rejected her Native American heritage.

“The internet was in a whirlwind, calling it ‘racist’,” Fey said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fey shared that her “new goal is not to explain jokes. I feel like we put so much effort into writing and crafting everything, they need to speak for themselves.”

And the life lesson Fey learned, and passed on:

“Steer clear of the internet and you’ll live forever.”
