Uh Oh, Alec Baldwin’s Latest Homophobic Rant Got Him Suspended From MSNBC

Oh, Alec Baldwin and that fiery Irish temper. He’s always lashing out at someone, but he seems to make gay people his target quite a lot, which is a bit unsettling. He’s apparently done it again to a reporter when asked about his recent stalker case. They got into a fight, he used some unsavory language and MSNBC has now taken Up Late with Alec Baldwin off air for two weeks.

Alec did apologise (again) for his fuckery, but it’s just kinda annoying me now (via MSNBC):

“I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry.

“Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support.

“I understand Up Late will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week. I want to apologize to my loyal fans and to my colleagues at MSNBC – both for my actions and for distracting from their good work. Again, please accept my apology.”

SMH. Do I think Alec Baldwin is really homophobic? I used to think definitely not, but now I’m not so sure. When your default thought when pissed off is to use gay as an insult, methinks there may be an issue there.

  • This is America and their is free speech here if anyone forgot ( media ) ! Once someone disagrees with what someone says they get all pissed off but not everyone feels the same that’s what makes the world go round so people just need to lay off of him . It’s his right to feel any way he wants and I think it was wrong for him to get suspended , I never saw how he feels affect his job . Next on applications they are gonna start having question about your believes and if you disagree you won’t get the job even if you qualify . That’s what it’s gonna come down to .

  • Everyone has said someing they shouldn’t , probably to hurt someone or piss someone off , be honest . Those paps don’t even use the three foot rule or the arms length rule they are rightin your face . You can’t move, turn around or get in your car that’s enough to piss anyone off . It’s not like he is a fame whore who wants the attention like Kim so just leave him alone and stay out of his and his families face . Those paps want the shot so bad and their so many of them how about if when their out one day and one of them knock into the baby stroller ? Wouldn’t you be pissed ?
