GLAAD

Alec Baldwin Gets a Pass

'Cause We're Shameless Starf**kers

6/28/2013 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0628_glaad_alec_baldwin_article_2

Alec Baldwin just got a "Get Out of Homophobia Jail Free" card from the people at GLAAD ... because they don't have the balls to go after a self-proclaimed Hollywood liberal.

After Baldwin essentially called for the gay-bashing of a Daily Mail reporter ... the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation -- the same org. that's CRUSHED people for making far less harmful and threatening statements --  asked critics to back off Baldwin.

"Alec Baldwin is making it clear [to GLAAD]  that the intent behind his tweets does not excuse his language, especially at a time when there were 11 incidents of violence against gay men in New York City just last month. As we all work to end such senseless acts of violence, allies like Baldwin are right to use these moments to reinforce support for the community and LGBT equality."

But the statement continues ... and might reveal the REAL reason they're letting Alec off easy:

"Alec Baldwin has worked with several organizations and added his voice to a campaign by Fight Back NY to encourage the State Senate to pass marriage equality with out actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson. He also had a guest role on Will & Grace and played a gay character in the 2006 Off-Broadway revival of 'Entertaining Mr. Sloane.'"

It's almost like the org. is afraid if they bash Baldwin, he'll STOP doing pro-gay projects. Hmmmm ...

If Bill O'Reilly said the same thing ... with the same explanation -- ya think GLAAD would still think it was no big deal?  Hmmmm ...

Morality and civil rights are not related. Gays have civil rights, but America is a democracy. Majority rules. The vast majority oppose gay morality. Gays need to respect the morality of the majority, just like gays want the majority to respect gay morality.

wtf    

when alec physically assaults someone i will care. making comments, using words, saying things is no reason to get offended and launch media attacks. the gays and the blacks need to stop whining every time someone uses a word or phrase, it's like The Boy Who Cried Wolf. you are numbing everyone to caring about your cause.

I don't see the big deal with what he said. He didn't use the 'F' word for gay...he just said queen and referenced anal sex. "Fabulous" gay men call themselves queens ALL the time and women get called out for spreading their legs if they sleep with multiple men. Saying that he would enjoy a foot up his butt is no different than people calling out Kim K for her sexual conquests and sex tapes.


Sorry, TMZ, but you're wrong here.

"Alec Baldwin is making it clear that the intent behind his tweets does not excuse his language, especially at a time when there were 11 incidents of violence against gay men in New York City just last month. " Give em (HOMOSEXUALS) half a court hearing and the 7% doesn't care about the amount of Mexican/ Arabs and South American's being slaughtered by the day. Sure you can TRY to ruin a career.

You can always see Harvey, with big manic eyes hopping up and down as this article was being written. Alec Baldwin is a jerk with a temper. Harvey is baby who doesn't like when he can't get his own way. Together they suck out any enjoyment from the day.
