Alec Baldwin Decries Troy Davis Execution, Lays Into Michelle Malkin

by at . Comments

The execution of Troy Davis last night drew widespread criticism, including from 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, who did not hold back on Twitter today.

Never one to shy away from controversial subjects, Baldwin made sure that his disgust over the Georgia man's death was heard loud and clear.

Of Davis' execution, which occurred at 11.08 p.m. by lethal injection, despite a plea for clemency, "The anti-justice haters won tonight," Baldwin said.

The 53-year-old actor went on to make a stream of politically passionate comments that attracted both praise and criticism from Twitter followers.

He referred to the family of police officer Mark McPhail, who was gunned down rushing to the aid of a homeless man in a Burger King parking lot in 1989.

"Wonder if the MacPhail family will seek death penalty for US leaders who killed thousands of US soldiers and countless innocent Iraqis," tweeted Alec.

He then went on a Twitter rampage about his disgust in the execution of 42-year-old Davis, which was based on questionable eyewitness evidence.

"Every sensible American is appalled when police officer is killed. But the attendant charges are grave. U don't want 2 kill an innocent man."

"Troy Davis is still dead. The gulf, still contaminated. Fukushima, still radioactive. Iraq, war. #wecraveignorancesowecanshoplikeamericans"

He then went after conservative blogger Michelle Malkin,after she wrote: "Waiting for Hollyweirdo @alecbaldwin's "I am Troy Davis" tweet..."

To which he replied: "Davis is dead Does that make you happier, @michellemalkin?" He wasn't done there, hitting her with this comment:

"I wonder if @michellemalkin will push the needle in herself on a man the former FBI director said might have reasonable doubt on his side."

Baldwin, who has reportedly considered venturing into politics, was far from the only Hollywood star to weigh in on this cause celebre.

Following her messages of support to Daivs on Wednesday, Kim Kardashian was upset to wake up on Thursday and discover he was dead.

"Such an injustice!!!! Troy Davis was executed! My prayers are with the Davis Family! #RIPTroyDavis," the professional celebrity tweeted.
