It's getting hard out here for a comedian. Just ask Tracy Morgan. "People are ultrasensitive now," he says on the phone from Vegas, where he's making a stop on his Turn It Funny stand-up tour. "It seems like you can't say anything about anyone. "Everyone has an opinion. People comment. That's social media," he says, hacking repeatedly. He took his hay fever with him on the plane from Jersey. Morgan is more vulnerable to getting caught on tape than most. It's not that the Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock veteran doesn't have a filter.

I'M BEGINNING to feel sorry for Tracy Morgan. It can't be easy to breathe when your foot's that far down your throat. Plus, there's the "30 Rock" star's LGBT apology tour, which hit a snag this weekend, when, according to the New York Times , he told an audience at a Times Square comedy club: "Don't ever mess with women who have retarded kids," because, he added, "Them young retarded males is strong. They're strong like chimps. " Morgan's at least partly right. He shouldn't mess with us. Some of us might review TV shows for a living.

FEDERAL investigators yesterday were looking into commercial trucking and other safety issues in the wake of a deadly chain-reaction crash on the New Jersey Turnpike that left Tracy Morgan and two others critically injured and comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair , a friend and mentor to Morgan, dead. Kevin Roper , a Wal-Mart truck driver from Georgia, was charged with death by auto and four counts of assault by auto. Authorities said Roper apparently failed to slow for traffic ahead early Saturday in Cranbury Township and swerved his big rig into the back of Morgan's chauffeured Mercedes limo bus, flipping it over.

COMEDIAN Tracy Morgan is losing support faster than Anthony Weiner . And given Morgan's view, Weiner better not sext him a photo.

AMANDA BYNES, who'd been staying out of the tabloid headlines recently, a promising signal that she was keeping her life together, was arrested in L.A. yesterday on charges of DUI. The "influence," however, was believed to be weed, according to TMZ.com. A TMZ source said she's been smoking for weeks. TMZ reported that Amanda was driving a Mercedes in the San Fernando Valley when she stopped in the middle of an intersection on Van Nuys Boulevard.

  LAST MONTH, after a tractor-trailer collided with a vehicle carrying actor Tracy Morgan and others, national attention focused - briefly - on the serious issue of fatigued truck drivers. The truck's driver, Kevin Roper, was charged with vehicular manslaughter in the death of comedian James McNair, one of the vehicle's passengers, and prosecutors alleged that Roper hadn't slept in more than 24 hours. But then an initial report from the National Transportation Safety Board said that Roper had been working for 13 1/2 hours at the time of the crash, just within the legal limit of 14 hours on duty with no more than 11 hours behind the wheel.
