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."

Unfortunately, it is a virtual guarantee you will not be able to keep your promise to choose your words more carefully in the future. You are a really talented jackass.

What he said was wrong. What he did to the Papparazzi was wrong as well. He has experience enough to know better. His apology was well said and it was good enough for me.

Has anyone heard from Capital One? I suppose their silence indicates that they approve and endorse his behavior and feelings towards gays and human beings. In fact, I think you could safely assume that Capital One hates f*gs, just like Alex does.

How many times will he apologize before everyone realizes his apologies mean absolutely nothing? Can't we just decide to not consider him "famous" anymore?

He will be contrite for about a week and then go back to his usual rants.
His wife eggs him on with this stuff too, pointing out into the crowd of media who was mean to her etc..
she knows he is going to go off on someone over it

The height of hypocrisy. Paula Dean admits to using the "n" word years ago and she's crucified and fired from her network. Alex Baldwin is only suspended for 2 shows and he'll be back threatening violence, bullying, name calling and lying.

At least Paula Dean was honest, didn't lie about it and took responsibility -- whereas Baldwin is STILL the darling of the GLADD and his openly gay hairdresser.

Go figure...

Funny how the story changes once he gets hit in the $$$$$$$$! Cancel the show. Get rid of him.

Just Guessing    

Was surprised when I learned MSNBC even hired him for a show. He has always been a loose cannon in more ways than one. Remember his phone call to his daughter? The man has real anger issues that go way beyond the words he chooses to use. Would hate to be his wife or anyone that crosses him. He's a powder keg with a very short fuse (which could be why he's so frustrated and angry all the time). .
