Alec Baldwin

FIRED FROM MSNBC

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.

I think it's ridiculous. Unless your saying these words towards a gay person then it can not be called bullying. These photogs go after people over and over and 95% of them deserve to be treated this way.

That show was a pretentious ass kissing fest. I was really dissapointed considering how much I liked him as an actor.

Well duh - who didn't see that coming?

Now, why is TMZ trying to redeem Baldwin's name by posting his finest performance, I really do not know... however, it's kinda funny to realize how easily "f*ggot" and 'c*cksucker" rolled out of his mouth, all those years ago.

There's a problem here    

I don't see where being fired from either the MSNBC or FOX News Kool-Aid stations would be a bragging point.

They also fired Howard Stern back in the middle 80's.

And you know how THAT went...

The only sane, talented and NORMAL Baldwin (thankfully not related to Alec and his bunch of moron brothers,) would be ADAM BALDWIN. He is worth watching in anything and, he doesn't behave like an asshat. Why doesn't he have a news/politics show on MSNBC? I'd watch and would love to hear him share his views. He's got a good head on those fabulous shoulders.

They should also fire people who use slur words like ..." whore, redneck...etc..."
