Alec Baldwin

Fine, I DID Use a Homophobic Slur

11/15/2013 7:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0827-alec-baldwin-gettyAlec Baldwin is finally admitting (and even apologizing) for spewing a homophobic slur at a photog in NYC yesterday ... but shockingly, the slur he's copping to is NOT the F-bomb.

Late last night, Baldwin went to Twitter and wrote, "Rich Ferraro from @glaad informs me that c'sucker is an anti-gay epithet. In which case I apologize and will retire it from my vocabulary."

Of course, Baldwin's referring to the incident outside of his Manhattan apartment ... when he called a photog a "c**ksucking f*g."

Funny, Alec is ADAMANT the F-word he used was "fathead" and NOT "f*g" ... even though you can hear it clear as day in the footage, which we posted on TMZ.

A rep for GLAAD has also issued a statement ... saying, "Mr. Baldwin can’t lend his support for equality on paper, while degrading gay people in practice. It's clearly time he listens to the calls from so many LGBT people and allies to end this pattern of anti-gay slurs."

update_bar
7:55 AM PT -- Anderson Cooper has also weighed in ... tweeting, "Wow, Alec Baldwin shows his true colors yet again. How is he going to lie and excuse his anti-gay slurs this time?"

He added, "Just read Alec Baldwin's latest excuses. They are actually so ridiculous they are funny."

He should have said " M8456h, F935en Bas-23 C/,c34" ! That way the Paparat's would have known he was mad ! Seem's to me they target him because he has a short fuse and they can rile him up, just to get a picture ! s***bag's !

He's a crazy liberal so this won't have any impact on him. A boycott? Not going to happen. Hypocrisy perhaps?

I guess I'm gay cause I"m a female that likes to *********. PLEASE **** OFF with the bastardization of terms - you 'gladd' types can't take every word or phrase in the universe and call it an anti-gay slur. I'm so sick of all ******* and whiners regardless of color or orientation, playing this 'bullied' card. Why don't heterosexuals bitch and complain the same way? Oh wait, it's because we don't put our bedroom behavior on display in a parade every year then wonder why people are making fun of us. I'm totally pro-dowhatyouwant - but **** off. If you're going to call attention to yourselves as victims, then you deserve to be mocked, just like everyone else. As for the ****sucker thing? People who ********* are ****suckers. You gays don't get to keep that one for your own private dictionary so shut the **** up and put a **** in it.

So then, Rich Ferraro is some kind of supreme syntax police queen then?

Good Lord, this panty-bunching over WORDS is completely ridiculous. I refuse to play, all you Rich Ferraros out there!

I'll damn well speak whatever words I feel like speaking in any particular situation, thank you.

I'm sure Alec is angry and fed-up with the papps... Let him, and any FREE AMERICAN say whatever they want, O.K.?

LGBTs: You are looking more and more publicly ridiculous. Stand down, quit attacking people's freedoms, opinions and beliefs. That's not nice. Quit being the 'ever-present' word victims. We are all very tired of hearing your stupid whining UPROARS!
Go away, live your odd sex life any way you wish, PRIVATELY, and you'll be left alone. Oh wait, seems you ENJOY the attention after all, don't you?

It has not been and it won't always be, but the gay community currently has a lot of clout. Alec Baldwin apparently thinks has some sort of pass for being pissed on by gays. Sorry, Al, but your calling somebody is the same as calling a black pap a ****ing ******.

Why is it Paula Dean gets crucified for admitting that she may have said the "N" word 30 years ago and Alec Baldwin keeps spewing homophobic slurs and gets away with it? Everyone, except GLAAD, ignores it and he gets a talk show.

no self respecting homosexual would admit to knowing him. much less even share an elevator with him, he is imbalanced mentally, and a crashing bore otherwise. he is not witty, funny, or intellegent. He is the poster child for PWT

He Lied.
If he was sooo righteous about his believe, then he would have fessed up like a MAN and not lie.
-
The word F*g is no big deal, least to me or friends plus, it's just a word.
This issue is he LIED like a weak punk.

Well I'd expect nothing less; this man is Not an actor; not a gifted one; one that just WILL NOT GO AWAY! sick of his antics, sick of his face, one day maybe he will bless us all and Just Go Away! There is nothing worse than someone who thinks they can act that just won't go away. Sorry Bros you too; there is no talent here. It's just been the last 20 yrs of anyone who knows anyone who knows anyone who really is an actor, somehow get's the roles. Not roles of a lifetime. Not an actor, not a good man. Has lots of issues, most well known. Just go away. Go do something with your life; and get off our screens please.

It's a word people use when they are mad. Always has been. People usually don't associate it with gay when yelling this word. The guy was mad. Big deal. Get over it. Yeah, I'm a Conservative and it's usually us defending Alec Baldwin when these things happen
