GLAAD

Alec Baldwin Gets a Pass

'Cause We're Shameless Starf**kers

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

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 ...

He's got the right politics. He can say anything he wants against gays and those hypocrites would praise him. Same with clinton raping women and NOW endorsed him

Men dressed up in feathers and streamers, looking like circus clowns. Unless you are actually in a circus, cut it out. You're just disgusting. You're neither man nor woman, neither fish nor fowl, just a fool. Sit in the dark and have a very long conversation with God. Or somebody.

I dunno. I like him on 30 Rock. He seems to have anger issues, though.
I think it's just that in his world, treating someone differently because they're gay, and calling someone a queen and saying you're going to scratch their eyes out, just aren't necessarily on the same level.
Anything goes in smack talk, he is a competitive man in a competitive business, and he works steady.
But he also puts his money (and his time) where his mouth is when it comes to actual discrimination.
I'm not saying he's right to do it. But they should approach it as a moment to educate.

Doesn't mean you're not an ******* just because you're gay.

I would love to give Alec an ass whooping. How many things does that pompous ass need to do before we boycott this clearly deranged individual

I am so sick of Glaad, they are a group of bullies that hide behind the gay flag. Bottom line is we all have a right to voice our opinion and no one should have to feel like we are targets if we dont agree with Glaad. If your forcing people to have an opinion are you really winning?

Yet, when someone is robbed, with a gun to their head and they call out a name, in the south, and probably with justification, and it comes out in a deposition, they are ruined beyond measure.

This creep gets a pass, not only is GLAAD spineless, but they are ballless too.. opps a slur.

Apparently GLADD can't function without Baldwin. GLADD is really just sad.

More compelling "math"? In the end of the day, I might become a genius just from reading TMZ.

Good for you TMZ! reporting at is best right here. Its good to have a gay friendly internet reporting service that has enough clout not to bow down to some celebrity like GLAAD has. Full salute Harvey!

weak tmz. your just bitching because everyone doesn't line up behind your outrage. Baldwin isn't a homophobe. he was just pissed at that guy.

Who the F*CK cares what glaad thinks. People need to start thinking for themselves instead of letting others tell them what they should think!!
