Alec Baldwin got fired from his brand new MSNBC show and it is my LOL of the day because really, Alec Baldwin is a dick. His homophobic rants got him suspended but now the network is saying, “Nah, let’s just get rid of this dude before things get worse.” That wasn’t an official statement, so here’s one from TMZ, plus some more info:
A rep for MSNBC called the firing “a mutual parting” [“Mutual” — another LOL!] … adding, “We wish Alec all the best.”[…] After the actor went on ANOTHER homophobic tirade earlier this month, the news network has finally decided to cut bait on Baldwin, who hosted the poorly-rated weekly show, “Up Late with Alec Baldwin.”
Sources close to the firing say the decision to axe Alec was based, in part, on his recent homophobic outbursts … when he called a photog a “cocksucking f-g.”
Hey, that’s okay, he’s still got his incredible Capital One commercials that air on Netflix every other goddamn commercial break.
