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."

c'sucker is not an anti-gay epithet, that's just vulgar. His "c**ksucking f*g." comment is what is anti-gay, therefore, he hasn't apologized.

I'm tired of Baldwin acting like everybody else is an imbecile. Nobody alive has probably ever used the phrase "****sucking fathead," including Baldwin. Yes, you said homophobic stuff. Yes, you said f*g. Yes, ****sucker is a gay slur. Can we make him go away now?

So GLAAD is the keeper of all things moral and right? Who cares what they think, this is a free country and he can yell anything he wants.

He can say whatever he wants, it's a free country. TMZ needs to stop with its pro gay agenda and promoting homosexuality. It's disgusting and unnecessary.

Political correctness is WAY overrated and a very Liberal agenda. Shocks me how many things this guy does that the Libs are all over sensitive and judgmental about, yet he continues on the path with those same people. I'll never forget when the dude from The Five was trying to talk to Alec. I wish TMZ would find that video. Hilarious.

Ok Van if you have such a problem with racist comments,than why can you make racist comments. The comment that you made about Katy Perry's boobs was very racist towards woman. Practice what you preach. I know a better solution!!!! Quit being so sensitive.

Really? So now Rich Ferraro decides what is acceptable and not acceptable do say? BTW, who is Rich Ferraro and who really cares. Alec was supposed to move to Canada many years ago when he was mad a George Bush, why hasn't he left yet. He is a has been and a horrible father.

I first want to say that my son is gay, and so I take homophobic actions very seriously. Just like ADHD, and now bipolar, is being over diagnosed, this to me is kind of the same thing. The terminology, bully, and sexual harassment are all being over used. This is NOT a homophobic slur. A homophobic slur is when someone says something derogatory to a person who is gay. I know the difference between angry and homophobic. I know I might not be popular with my opinion, but if people, or "news" agencies keep over using the term...no one will listen anymore when it is real. My husband is in the military, and I have seen homophobic. This does not qualify. Simply an angry man who is not showing good judgement with the words he is using. Sorry one opinion who is very proud of her gay son, and has seen homophobic slurs hurtled at him.
