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."

im getting ****ing sick of Gay people getting offended by this ****. Who the **** cares anymore. Shut up. Throwing in everyones face that you suck eachothers ***** or eat eachothers *****s is getting old. All these Parades....it doesnt make you special, AT ALL. Its ****ing normal, and ***got has been thrown around so much who the **** cares. Gay people are so sensitive and over using their ridiculous "im sooooo offended" power. Not all gay people are god...some are actual ***gots.

He calls men gay as an insult because he thinks gay men have something wrong with them great liberal, but he's for gay marriage so its OK.

People, he doesn't have a fear of homosexuals. Calling someone a f*g is absolutely meant as a put down because obviously homosexual behavior is perverted and unnatural. It's not the same as saying n*gger. Try as you may to make it normal...it never will be.

He is not sorry, if he was sorry he'd stop doing this all the time.

He is only apologizing from PR pressure to save face.

Glad MSNBC suspended him.

His mouth has no filter, no care, no empathy for the hurtful things he spews.

No remorse, this is just PR crap, fake, not genuine. He is in a corner now so has to.

well lets just see if the liberal press and establishment treats this bigot in the same manner as paula dean...
I doubt it since there is a double standard for liberals...msnbc would have fired paula dean--as a matter of fact, nbc did fire her...
give him the same treatment...

Why does this guy keep getting a pass? He pretends that being a raving liberal allows him to say whatever he wants. Pathetic!

He is in the business of 'speaking' and has been for decades. It is not about 'choosing', Alec, it is about much needed therapy for your ongoing public display of textbook anger and abusive behavior issues.
