Alec Baldwin

Suspended by MSNBC

Apologizes for Homophobic Rant

Alec Baldwin has one less place to rant ... MSNBC suspended the actor from his talk show for hurling homophobic slurs -- and he's finally admitting what he said was "offensive."

Baldwin released a statement saying ... "I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry."

Baldwin's issued his apology after MSNBC announced it was yanking his weekly show off the air tonight and next Friday.

Alec seems to be rationalizing his rage though, saying ... "What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable."

Baldwin originally claimed he yelled, "c**ksucking fathead" ... instead of "c**ksucking f*g" ... while chasing a photographer on Thursday. 

In his apology Baldwin concedes, "Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward.  Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support."

Except he's not sorry. He talks this way all the time. He's sorry that someone finally did something about his pathetic behavior.

He needs to go to RE-HAB. Yes, rehab will make him a better man. Rehab solves everything wrong with his thinking and he will be loved once again my the minions.

Finally    

At least he is man enough to face his own actions and be accountable and come clean UNLIKE Sylvester Stallone who flat denies it after switching his story with saying it was a few different names he called, and claims audio was modified etc, ITS STRAIGHT UP HIS VOICE AND WORDS WE HEAR IT, not so "Sly" after all..

Alec, how many times do you need to lose your temper and just pop off words without thinking
?
You know damn well that if you use the word "F*G, or Queen, or Queenie" that the Gay community will lose it's minds. Dude needs to get that temper in check, he lost his first wife because of it, almost lost his daughter, Ireland because of it. You now have another wife and new baby. It's one thing to be protective, it's another not to "EMBARRASS your family while doing it". I'm all for verbally berating the paps, most of them are idiots and strive to incite a reaction. Funny how you can be arrested for inciting a riot but you can't be arrested for inciting one person to lose their minds. Sheesh.

Wow ...    

Too late arse hole. You only apologize because it will hurt the pocket book, not because you really are. How fricking old does one have to be, to know what words NOT to use?
