30 Rock star Tracy Morgan has done it again.
Fresh off the back of his controversial jokes about the handicapped and remarks about the gay community, now he is going after New Jersey.
The star was overheard saying that he thinks the Garden State is like the 'Third World'.
Controversy: Tracy Morgan has offended the New jersey community less than a month after he was forced to apologise for his homophobic rant in Nashville
The actor and comedian has allegedly been taped in a heated exchange after he gatecrashed a barbecue on the roof of a plush apartment complex in New York's Manhattan.
He was at a birthday party for Headquarters hostess Denise Real at Silver Towers when he went over to another party, allegedly to mingle with some ladies.
He unleashed his rant, saying the world was 'ghetto', after Konstantin Burshteyn - a White Plains lawyer - remarked they were lucky to be having a private party overlooking the Hudson.
Morgan allegedly shouted: 'I don't give a f*** what you think...This is my motherf***ing generalisation, not yours.'
Mr Burshteyn said guests were shocked when Morgan continued: 'New Jersey, right across the river, is the Third World.'

According to the New York Post, when the lawyer rebutted him, Morgan allegedly ranted: 'Believe me, dude - I live in a very affluent neighbourhood right now and my house, one of them is $2 million, and there is some ghetto f*** going on there.'
'New Jersey, right across the river, is the Third World'
Earlier, Morgan had told guests at the party he attended: 'I'm from the ghetto, and that ain't bad. I will never be disconnected from my roots. You disconnect the tree from the roots and what happens to the tree? It f***ing dies.'
After spending weeks last month apologising for homophobic remarks he made, he landed himself in hot water again by mocking the mentally disabled.
In a performance at a comedy club in New York, the 30 Rock Star compared 'young retarded males' to 'chimps', remarks which have already prompted anger from disability charities.

He made the comments just days after giving a grovelling press conference alongside Kevin Rogers, the disgruntled fan who first drew attention to his rant in Tennessee when he said he'd 'stab' his son if he 'acted gay'.
During the gig at the end of June, the 42-year-old comic warned his audience: 'Don't ever mess with women who have retarded kids.
'Them young retarded males is strong. They're strong like chimps.'
Although he acknowledged the storm his homophobic remarks caused, Morgan showed no signs of censoring himself on his first return to the stage.
As well as saying he would 'stab' his son if he was gay, he also said that victims of homophobic bullying need to 'stop whining'.
His comments sparked a furious backlash from the gay community and others.
Tina Fey also issued a statement saying she was disturbed by his comments and that they did no reflect anyone else's views on 30 Rock.
Fey's comments were seconded by NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt, who claimed the network has warned Morgan about the incident.

Morgan then embarked on an apology tour to make amends, visiting homeless gay teenagers.
It remains to be seen what the New Jersey community will make of his latest remarks and whether he will issue the same grovelling apologies.
