Controversial comic Tracy Morgan has hit back at women's rights campaigners following fierce criticism of his shows in Australia and calls to boycott the rest of his tour Down Under.

The 30 Rock star suffered a mass walk-out during his performance in Melbourne on Saturday night (13Apr13), with fans and critics subsequently complaining about the overly sexual references and explicit content.

Women's rights activists, including Melinda Tankard Reist, who runs female-focused campaign group Collective Shout, branded Morgan's show sexist and called for fans to boycott the rest of his dates.

Morgan took to the stage as planned for his first show at the Regal Theatre in Perth on Monday (15Apr13), and he addressed the controversy directly during his performance.

However, the star remained unrepentant about the scandal, telling the audience, "All I'm trying to do is make people laugh... It's fear. (Tankard Reist) doesn't understand me... I love her anyway."

According to Themusic.com.au, he then aimed a barb at his critics, adding, "Go home and blog some s**t 'cause (sic) you ain't gettin' any (sic). I don't give a f**k what you think."

The star is due to perform a second show at the Perth venue on Tuesday (16Apr13).
