Alec Baldwin

FIRED FROM MSNBC

1126_alec_baldwin_getty

Alec Baldwin didn't get a Cadillac Eldorado ... he didn't get a set of steak knives ... but he DID just get his ass FIRED from MSNBC.

After the actor went on ANOTHER homophobic tirade earlier this month, the news network has finally decided to cut bait on Baldwin, who hosted the poorly-rated weekly show, "Up Late with Alec Baldwin."

Sources close to the firing say the decision to axe Alec was based, in part, on his recent homophobic outbursts ... when he called a photog a "c**ksucking f*g."

Alec immediately went into damage control mode after the incident -- but it was pathetic -- with the actor trotting out a male hairdresser to vouch for his love of gay people. He also spoke at a conference and professed his platonic love of several fellas.

A rep for MSNBC called the firing "a mutual parting" ... adding, "We wish Alec all the best."

Oh, and if you don't get the opening line of this story -- just watch the clip from "Glengarry Glen Ross." It's actually his finest work.

Good, one idiot down. Now how about firing Martin Bashir for his misogynistic comments? Or at least allow us to defecate in his mouth.

He has been making anti-gay slurs for years with NO consequences.
It's about time it all catches up with him!
Not a nice guy!

TMZ is upset b/c they believe Alec, indirectly, went after their boss when he yelled out.

The man was in a fit of rage against these photog cretins. Who can blame him!

From Variety~~
Alec Baldwin and MSNBC have agreed to part ways on his short-lived interview show following the controversy the erupted over the actor’s use of an anti-gay slur in an encounter with a photographer.
Sources close to the situation insist that Baldwin was not been fired from the NBCU news cabler, but that the sides “mutually” agreed to end the show in light of the dust-up."

But the photog IS a "c*cksucking f*g."
And Alec's daughter is a "fat f*cking p*g".
.
Anything else to add, Alec?
Perhaps something about your Schweddy Balls?

Why didn't MSNBC make it a double firing - Baldwin & Bashir? Both especially Bashir are unbelievable!!!!. Hopefully MSNBC will wake up & clean house starting with Mathews.
