Tracy Morgan candidly opened up about his weight loss journey admitting he’d been using celeb-favorite Ozempic to help him lose a few pounds.
‘That’s how this weight got lost,’ the 54-year-old 30 Rock star admitted on Today With Hoda & Jenna on Monday morning.
He did note that the drug, typically used to treat Type-2 diabetes, was just a supplement to his consistent exercise regimen.
The standup comedian added, ‘I went and got a prescription, and I got Ozempic.’
With his trademark snarky humor, he joked, ‘I ain’t letting it go!’

Staying on track with keeping the topic of his Ozempic use comedic, the New York-born standup star joked how, ‘It cuts my appetite in half. Now I only eat half a bag of Doritos.”
The What Men Want star is just one of many celebrities to hop on the Ozempic trend for weight loss.
However, he’s one of the rare Hollywood A-listers who have actually openly admitted to taking the medication.
Back in 2014, the Fist Fight star was involved in a collision that involved a Wal-Mart truck driver that had reportedly been sleep-deprived behind the wheel.
As a result of the crash, the Death At A Funeral star broke several ribs, crushed his femur, and broke every bone in his face.
Although the star has come a long way since being wheelchair-bound for several months after the incident, he was still seen using a cane yesterday after leaving the Today Show.
However, the snarky comedian found a way to use the traumatic incident to his humorous advantage.
In the trailer for his latest comedy special, ‘Taking It Too Far,’ Tracy jokes that his Tinder profile includes a photo of a Wal-Mart truck dropping money off at his front lawn.
