Alec Baldwin

breaking news


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.

Not into homophobic slurs or behaviors of any kind.

Left a previous Church because of their stance on this.

That aside - you can't expect a guy to succeed.

When you PUT his show on and at 3:35 a.m.

He's an interesting dude - but for God's sake, NBC...

Get him on when people are actually UP.

The true reason for the firing was it was a crappy show, but they use his comments as an excuse. I don't like baldwin, but he is entitled to his opinion and I have heard gay people speak worse things about strait Christians.

He needs some serious anger management classes; he is the one who is touched.

There's a problem here    

Who would think even for a minute that he didn't say ccoksucker and f@g? I'm no fan of cut and paste, but here are a few excerpts of Alec's greatest hits to his then 11 year old daughter:

"I'm tired of playing this game with you. I'm leaving this message with you to tell you you have insulted me for the last time. You have insulted me. You don't have the brains or the decency as a human being. I don't give a damn that you're 12 years old, or 11 years old, or that you're a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass ..."

..."I am going to get on a plane and I am going to come out there for the day and I am going to straighten your ass out when I see you."

"Do you understand me? I'm going to really make sure you get it. Then I'm going to get on a plane and I'm going to turn around and come home. So you'd better be ready Friday the 20th to meet with me. So I'm going to let you know just how I feel about what a rude little pig you really are. You are a rude, thoughtless little pig, OK?"
'Nuff said.

Has anyone check to see if the photog was a c**ksucking f*g." ? Alec may have been correct.

And if the photog is insulted by being called a gay man who sucks c**k wouldn't that make the photog a homophobe himself?

Well, that's one self-important, foul-mouthed, self-entitled, belligerent, only mildly talented
individual, who needed some sort of lesson,
to straighten his thinking. Sadly, he'll probably
make money, off of the firing.

@Bella: Congratulations, for making one of the most honest statements EVER, at TMZ.Com.
Be sure to add Native-Americans, Latino-Americans, and
Pacific Islander-Americans to your list of "OK to condemn/belittle/insult".
By-the-way, how many people named Bashir, Gupta,
or Amanapour were on The Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria?

Heaven forbid someone exercise their freedom of speech. I don't agree with his take on homosexuality, but support his right to blather whatever he wants. This PC business has really gone over the top.
