GLAAD

Alec Baldwin Gets a Pass

'Cause We're Shameless Starf**kers

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 ...

Can you imagine if it was a republican that did this? Double standards. Same as Paula deen getting slammed yet little Wayne walks all over an American flag and barely hear a peep from anyone.

Exactly, if you are aligned politically with the left or particular interest groups you can get a pass. This story proves it. Selective persecution for inappropriate behavior or comments means that this whole PC thing is just made up to attack and silence those you disagree with. These groups and people have lost all credibility with me.

What a bunch of hypocrites! I bet if Paula Dean had made comments about them, they would go after her.

Gee, this "story" has right-wing written all over it. It's like something you'd see on Faux News.

GLAAD didn't give Baldwin a pass because he's famous; they gave him a pass because he's a huge Obama supporter and liberal. If a conservative actor went on the same rant, GLAAD would have broken out the pitchforks and torches.

Whoa..TMZ is mad. Putting pressure on GLAAD to put pressure on Alec? Maybe it'll work.....maybe it won't.

i notice the punk bitch who wrote this prefers to remain anonymous; HE's sucking Baldwin's dick just as much as GLAAD because his nuts shrink up to pea size just thinking about Mr 30 Rock getting pissed at him.

Love it...finally the liberals get to peek behind the hypocritical , agenda filled curtain. Don't like it much do you? LOL Alec might be a jerk but personally I'd like to thank him for being the reason behind this. Crucify the southern white lady...save the white libtard..Hahaaaa homophobic hate filed slurs are OKAY if you keep your wallet open for organization like GLAAD. Sooo can can anyone send in a $20 or attend a rally and get a pass as well?

This is the 2nd time I know he has called someone a "little queen". The other time was a barista who didn't make his latte to his liking and then there's the "1950's gym teacher" (lesbian) comment to the stewardess and this time he also said he'd put his foot up the reporters ass "but you'll probably like that", he stated, but nobody followed up on that statement. The guy is slick and uses his subtle homophobic remarks and nobody calls him out for it - you guys are right, they're all starf**kers

WTF    

You talk about Alec being a terrible person and then you post a bunch of photo of weirdos dressed as women and strutting around the streets. What the **** is wrong with you people? Does that reinforce your argument in any way

Since when is it a sin or illegal to dislike someone because of sexual orientation. So f*cking what if feminine men freak him out. Why can he not express that about someone who is blatantly lying about his wife! f*ck the little overly-sensitive photog if he can't take a bashing after trying to ruin someones character over tweeting at a funeral. Little b*stard deserves it in my opinion. Just like TMZ for trying to ruin someones career over like they did Paula Deen. TMZ seriously needs to stop. They have THE most racist ass people working for them anyway!
