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.

Wow...Circle the wagons around Miss Palin, huh? That should help make her less significant.

He absolutely deserved to be fired! He is totally out of control and he brought all this on himself. It's about time someone shut him down!

Why is the word "***" so offensive to gays. It simply means "gay". Why are they offended by a word that describes what they actually are? It is true that some people look down upon homosexuality. But if the person is already openly announcing that they are gay, why does using a different word that means the same thing offend them? It's not like saying they are stupid, mean, fat, or anything clearly negative, it simply means that they are attracted to the same sex, which they are. It's almost like the way that the word "retarded" is now considered derogatory. Retard means to slow something down, and that was a perfect description for a person who has slower mental development. But as soon as the description becomes a familiar term for what actually describes, it somehow becomes offensive. Same thing with negro. It meant nothing derogatory, until it became familiarly associated with black people and so the insanely politically correct world decided that it was somehow a bad word.

That being said, I cannot stand Alec Baldwin!

Did Alec learn nothing from the likes of Mel Gibson? Not one, not even you Mr. Baldwin can be allowed to spew racist, sexist and hateful words without consequence.

Sot hey don't fire sharpton and Toure for their racism, they don't fire all the blatant slander, they don't fire who photoshop the pics of non-white criminals to make them look white, but they fire Baldwin for that? What he did was nothing in comparison to Sharpton's daily racist agitations.

Alec is a low class dickweed blessed with good looks he has milked for a career and millions of dollars. He's SO lucky our society lacks values or he'd be a pretty garbage collector.
